    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’.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Marner because Drai is a winger with McDavis as his C and still has less points.

    Don't believe in Draisatl as a center?

    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
