Does somebody want to actually post some stats about Aho's defense compared to Marner's? Or are you all just going to keep spouting off about how "Aho's better defensively" as if it isn't the lamest excuse to separate wingers ever. At 5on5 Marner has better corsi relative to his teammates (+4.02 to -1.11), better xGA/60 (2.35 to 2.44) and is far better at takeaways (61 to 43). Aho has some stronger raw numbers due to his much higher ice time (20 minutes more in 4 less games played). Those defensive numbers also include Marner's time playing on a line with Bozak and JVR, two notorious defensive black holes. Aho plays with Jordan Staal. Aho plays against the tougher competition, which makes his results quite impressive, but there is very little to show that he's actually better than Marner defensively. There, that's my completely and utterly cherry picked set of stats. Now show me yours and we'll actually have a real discussion, not just a bunch of bs.
