    Preseason fun.

    Marner should have a good season.

    Mitch was insane tonight.
    The first PP looks great for it being their first game together. Think people that argued against going this route will be eating some major crow.
    The Kadri line lacks speed and is having trouble creating much offensively. Brown needs to start showing more or his play needs to come under more criticism.
    Our breakouts still suck and our forwards have developed this terrible habit of leaving the D zone way too early and leaving the D with no short outlet pass option.

    Ugly game to watch. We have the talent to be a great team but we still need to improve in some areas.

    Marner is going to have a great season. Our defence, not so much.

    Ugly ugly game and ugly win. Boys need to be much more structured than that. Tavares was invisible outside of the PP.

    JT's GPG drops to 1.3 per game. Very concerning.

    Also reminder that Price's 8 year, $10 mill per contract is in year 1 ... Just think of that after that 3rd goal

    Dubas needs to sign Marner on a 20 year $5M AAV

    RIGHT NOW. Next season signings are looking scary.

    Sloppy but a few bright spots. Andersen looked right at home even when under pressure. That PP unit is disgusting. Wizard of Oz looks to be more than capable of handling minutes on the right side. That Marner contract is going to be scary.

    Just give Marner Nylander's money. He's the one actually earning it.

    Not even up to speed yet and we still beat them 5-3. Insane PP. I love Marner on the PK. He's going be playing 20 min a night.

    Marner was awesome. He's going to have a big, big year.

    Also, can we please stop giving up 30+ shots every game?

    Basically the first game with the new roster together. It shouldn't be surprising.

    This is idiotic. Nylander has earned whatever contract he gets.

    If only Marner wasn’t too small, oh well.

    Every time he steps on the ice I hear the old "Mighty Mouse"song "Here I am to save the day", they should start playing when he does .Been telling you guys for 2 years he will be the one , it will be points not goals but he makes everybody around him good , well as good as some of them can be missing the wide open net setups he gives them lol

    Carey Price just let in 5 goals on 26 shots and 2 shorthanded goals. Do you think he will clear waivers?

    Kadri line looked better than the Tavares line tonight. It's telling that none of Marner's points came on his own line 5 on 5

    There was a poll last year and the poll was Is Marner a super star ? , Yes or No . He had almost double the no votes as he did yes . Have you guys changed your mind yet . I said he was the best player on the team last year . he's 100% been the best leaf this pre season . Welcome to the Marner show

    I seemed to hear the announcer saying his name a lot when we were getting hemmed in our end so that's probably a good thing.

    Probably won't get too many honest opinions here tbh, but I thought he looked good. Probably should get 9 games and then sent wherever, no need to rush him but never know with your management.
