    One thing I have read about Mitch Marner is that he doesn't use his shot as much, because how often have we seen him use his one timer when scoring goals? So when looking at this example of a previous goal he scored in overtime against Ottawa from this past season using his one timer, is it fair to say that Marner's shooting is underrated and it's something the other teams would not expect him to use?

    Yes it is, especially with the other teams knowing that he is a pass first guy... Think he should use his shot when he has the chance this series

    Teams don't expect it because it's not very good

    I was at the game. After the Leafs killed off the penalty and went on the PP I turned to my wife and said watch the magic.

    Then this happened.

    He's got good accuracy on it and his shot in general. It just tops out at like 85mph.

    No he doesn't. Just because you score once doesn't mean it's underrated.
    Was Dean Morton an underrated goal scorer? He scored one goal in his career.

    I think Marner has a good and underrated shot in general. his problem is he's too selective in when he uses it in my opinion

    Nah. Marner's shot is weak. Teams defend the pass against him usually.

    I'm pretty sure Mitchy is an extremely "high emotion" guy who feeds off in the moment events. He can do amazing things in bursts it appears.. I'd imagine he gets a lot of adrenaline throughout a game and crashes hard after. Need to add a lot of strength to him.. I hope his body matures in the next couple years.

    Marner needs to shoot more often and earlier. He holds on sometimes too long and gives away the right chance to beat a goalie. His power isnt good but he has shown deadly accuracy in the past. He tries to deke the goalie out a bit much. He is an elite playmaker first but his shot plus hands should be good for high 20 goals yearly. He can be a fringe 30 goal scorer moving forward if he applies himself to improve his shooting power and decision making a bit more.

    Last night was a good example. Tavares set him up with a nifty pass. Quick release as soon as he gets it and it's a goal. But he held on to it instead and did some random move and got a weak shot off.

    As others said he has really good accuracy so I hope he starts burying it instead of always going for a cute play.

    He's arguably the team's best playmaker. He still has a single season high of 26 goals to his credit. That doesn't necessarily mean he will top out at that mark.

    Its not underrated, he has good accuracy but overall weak shot at an NHL level. An area he can improve a lot which I think he will do over time.

    His shot has improved. He is getting stronger and you can see it in photos now. He is still not a great shot. He needs to work on it.

    Mitchy has an accurate shot so he can place it, But yeah he lets off muffin shots quite a bit. You won't see him put lazers in like Matthews, Nylander, and JT.

    Shooting is probably the biggest area of improvement he could make. It would make him an incredibly deadly player because he'd be a dual threat with his passes and shot, they couldn't cheat on him passing.

    His shot is below average for an NHL player but it's not an issue, he'll always be a pass first player.
    It will no doubt improve as he'll continually work on it and I think going forward he will be a consistent 30 goal guy.

    Marners shot seems to be pretty well rated in answer to the OP's question.

    it could be better, no doubt, he uses it only sparingly, but rarely misses when he does use it

    the fact is he has so many different things going on in his bag of tricks and so many ways to hurt the opponent you can't worry about one, it's just great seeing them all

    one thing's for sure though LeaFlanders do not truly understand what they have in Mitch and so often underrate, and under appreciate him

    You're responding to an insecure Nylander fan boy...
    His shtick is to bash Marner and/or praise Nylander at every opportunity

    A one-timer is a one-timer regardless of the power...
