    Even though we don't have the 1K post limit any longer, for ease of management I closed down the last one.

    Happy for TT! But Aho gets robbed from being a star of the week. 4G & 5A this week for Aho but no recognition.

    I think for the first time in a long time our forward depth is in a place that we don’t need to take fliers on other teams’ leftovers. Especially Vancouver’s.

    I don’t think he fills a roll on this team that PDG or call-up of the week can’t.

    Unfortunately you knew they weren't going to have 2 of the 3 from the same team, even though yeah Aho shoulda had that over MacKinnon.

    Who wants to tell TML fans that Aho has more goals, assists, and points on the season that "tier above" Mitch Marner?!?!?!?!?!

    You know you’d just get some stupid response anyway to justify why Marner is better.

    Just be sure to respond with a question of your own. And be sure to add on a few extra question marks. It’s bullet proof and makes your point come across stronger

    I’m no pro scout or anything, but the guy getting his contract voided by a bad team isn’t the one I’m trying to sign. That’s some Derek Joslin looking ****.

    I've never been overly impressed with Marner...with all that extensive knowledge of other teams' hockey players that I have, that is.

    It's very likely going to come back to bite you if you talk about points for Marner/Nylander vs. Aho. The Leafs are a very high scoring team and have a lethal PP so those guys are more than likely going to score more than Aho even if everything else was equal. Matthews is a beast out there, the team is very deep offensively and they play a much "run and gun" style. Marner will get a lot of assists on that team and Nylander has been a bit snake bitten when it comes to goals which will even out over time.

    I'm not saying they aren't very talented players in their own right, but the environment they are in is more conducive to scoring.
