    If you want to use the word "foolish" I think the bolded is a good example. Hes certainly playing like a top 30 player. Pretty obvious that you don't watch him.

    What if Pettersson takes a step back next year and only puts up 60 points? The amount of expectation for him are insane.

    I'm rude to people on here sometimes, usually if they reply to me in a condescending way. Kind of like your reply to him.

    You should care; when you condescend someone for thinking like a 'toddler', and subsequently construct a sentence like one. I dont agree with the guy either, but your reply is a bad look. My two cents.

    And to answer your question. Neither is worse, because your scenarios are the same.... I'm policing your grammar because you're wrong.

    Mackinnon rn is arguably a top 3 player league wide, and he still has room to grow.

    I’m 100% taking him here. Those are lofty goals to expect Pettersson to reach let alone surpass

    Edit: I will say there aren’t many players im taking over EP, he’s been sensational. Mackinnon just happens to be one of the few.

    Let me see what EP looks like next year before we put him ahead of MacK but I think he has more potential. Better shot, better passer/vision. I'd take MacK's hands, power, speed and quick release though but he's also 3 years older. I took MacK now, EP in future but that was being very optimistic.

    You shouldn't be allowed to post anything about the Canucks given how stupid and biased you sound all the time.

    You announce someone as "way overrated" without even watching them play. Too bad there are good reasonable Leafs fans out there, but you do a good job in making the whole fandom look bad with your dull shtick.

    It's a lot more likely he'll improve as opposed to taking a step back.

    Even if he did due to sophopmore slump, I can still see him putting high enough numbers given how talented he is.

    It’s likely the entire league steps back. His two way game is going to improve, but the offense might not continue to grow as expected. Who knows, we know what MacKinnon is at this point, and that’s a damn dominate hockey player.

    Nate now of course but I see no reason why EP can't reach a similar level in the future.

    Pettersson now and the future.

    I certainly understand how one would have MacKinnon for now, but I don't get how he would be better than Pettersson in the future.

    At the pint of this response read the comments through 3 pages of garbage. Expected it. A few smart users responding with i this it’s a fair oppionion. Then you have the leafs fans again degrading hfboards , that part comes as expected.

    Then you have 2 specific fan base of 2 certain teams with 2 popular rookies spewing their trash, wasn’t expected before, but now not surprised.

    And we have your comment. Pettersson is getting anything but easy minutes. He’s being treated as the teams first line player by other teams. He’s up against giordano, burns and Keith. Anything but easy minutes.

    If your a clueless stats watcher, bo horvat has more ice time is because the only difference is that bo also plays on the pk.

    Pettersson is being deployed like hank sedin. The offensive zone time is a strategic deployment to have your best offensive guns already in the enemy zone. All teams do this. He’s also on the top power play unit , yes you want to try to score asap on the Pp so you send out your best guys and give him as time as needed. Sounds routine.

    Easy minute my ass. He’s being deployed like every other first line player.
