Who is the more skilled player, and who do you build your team around.
Marner or Draisaitl.
As soon as I saw the title I immediately made up my choice and it's Marner.
Marner. Pure line driver. Pure PP catalyst. Definition of ‘straw that stirs the drink’.
It is Marner... much better player.
Marner. I don’t think it’s too close at this point either. Usually you take the big centre, but I’d take the guy who can drive his own line 9 times outta 10
Doesn't Marner play with John Tavares?
I'm not sure where this "drive his own line" narrative is coming from unless it's a jab at Draisaitl lol.
I'd say it's pretty close between the two, depends on what you need, big center or a more dynamic winger
Their production is similar:
LD: 39 pts in 32 games
MM: 41 pts in 32 games
"Pure" is a nice buzzword lol
what does it even mean?
Marner but Drai is super underrated so imma vote for him
I think those are two separate questions and it depends what you have on your team already. If you don't have a 1C, Draisatl is an easy choice, if you do then you probably go for the upside in Marner
I would take Marner as a #1C over Draisaitl.
Does not C > Winger rule apply here?
Pure and natural are buzzwords...that have been used to describe athletes since the beginning of sport.
What it means, if you really need to be enlightened as to what someone might mean using this term in a sporting analogy, is
-Pure: a natural, effortless, an ability to excel certain skill sets with ease compared to others which may require more effort and practice to perfect.
Typically I’d take the 1C but I’ll have Marner here
Draisaitl is basically a mooch off McDavid on the wing. Until he plays center away from McDavid and proves he can produce and play, it's Marner.
Not when he gets most of his points on McDavid’s wing lol
This is Marner but its closer than some people are making it seem.
Marner because Drai is a winger with McDavis as his C and still has less points.
Don't believe in Draisatl as a center?
Doesn't Marner get most of his points on Tavares' wing lol??
Marner couldn't drive a mini if Tavares wasn't there holding his hand
Marner’s the line driver not the passenger, big difference. How do you think JVR and Bozak got paid this summer? Haha
Just as clueless as the leafs fans who think Drai is a product of McDavid. Like it's pretty obvious that you don't watch any western conference teams, let alone the Oilers
I think it's great Leafs have elite C's in Matthews and Tavares who can carry around the very average and small one dimentional winger in Marner and a money greedy swede in Nylander.
Great C depth, best in the NHL!
Made yourself seem even more clueless by calling Marner one dimensional. What dimension is that? His amazing hockey vision, great playmaking, great edge work, solid penalty killing? Clueless.
When Drai was centering his own line the Oilers stunk pal, he couldn’t drive his line so they put him back with McDavid to drive up the offense but sure I don’t watch the Oilers lol.
Dont reply after what you just wrote. Marner is the furthest thing from a one-dimensional winger
Separate names with a comma.
