    Shilton says sometimes you forgot about Marner because he’s just so consistently great over his career, you just expect it.

    If the puck goes in, it goes in.
    I don’t care that rantanen scores more goals, because Marner gets way more assists. Goals aren’t any better than assists. Rantanen is a 51 goal scorer nice, how about marners 74 assists. Marner is a top 5 playmaker in the league I’ve the past 3 year he’s done his job superbly. Also going by their p/60 being close while rantanen having a significant higher g/60, wouldn’t that mean that Marner has a significantly higher a/60. Trying to compare a playmaker and goal scorer, whilst mainly only looking at goal scoring stats is biased.

    Marner is a bum. If he was any good at all he would be third in scoring in the league. :)

    Kane is pacing for the same amount of points/82 as Matthews. So is Panarin. Would you say they’re having as good a season as Matthews?

    Dude should straight up be a consideration for Selke. He's so underrated defensively.

    Mitch has been nothing short of elite this year. He is an exceptional player. I think he often gets lost in the discussion with Auston, but Mitch is every bit as important to this team as Auston. To me they are the 2 headed monster that are going to lead us as far as they take us. I think what is so awesome is that these 2 are both among the hardest working players on the Leafs. They never take a shift off. Truly fortunate to have these guys as Leafs

    Just wanted to point out to those who thought he wasn't a kane comparable that Marner is 3 points behind Kane in the same year after playing 31 less games.
    Career...Marner 1.01 PPG....Kane (at the same time of his career) was .925ppg.

    First of all, Kane is not on pace for the same as Matthews
    Kane is on pace for 99
    Matthews is on pace for 109
    Secondly, Kane is a winger Matthews is a center
    Thirdly, Kane is a defensive liability, Matthews is not
    In Kane’s defence though, he doesn’t have a Marner, but he does have Debrincat who has 48 in 47(84 pace)
    As for panarin, this I see as pretty close IMO
    Panarin is on pace for 112
    Matthews in on pace for 109
    Winger vs Center
    Defensively, both are strong
    Panarin plays with strome and Buchnevich I think both are 70+ point players, but Matthews plays with Marner who’s a 100+ Point player
    Hart voting might not be close due to standings but I think it should be closer.
    I don’t think 3 points should seperate their seasons this year, even if Matthews is on pace for 66 goals. Panarin is on pace for 78 assists
    I’d say Kane < Matthews == Panarin

    I’m cool with this. At least you’re consistent.

    I simply value goals more than you. As such, I think matthews is having a significantly better season than Panarin. And Rantanen is having a significantly better season than Marner.

    It seems in the Matthews threads here everyone values goals more than points. And in Marner threads everyone values points equally as goals. That inconsistency frustrates me at a level beyond insanity.

    Patrick Kane’s legend is built on clutch playoff performances and being in the drivers seat when the pressure is on against checking clubs like the prime 2010s LA Kings. So Marner’s task in matching Kane is playoff success.

    Fair enough, if you want to value goals more then assists that’s fine. Personally just value them equal but I do see what you are saying around here and it is better to stick to one thing

    Who cares about McDavid? Leafs are on a legitimate cup pursuit.

    Honestly why does Marner's and any of the other big players contracts matter at this point?

    People the leafs just wrecked the shit out of the North Division. All our big 4 produced really well. Who cares if some other guys are making a bit less producing similar?

    I got it last year where we drastically underperformed as a whole and had team issues. This year though? It's been the easiest season I've seen as a fan.

    We get to enjoy pure dominance most games and our superstars are all playing great.

    This team is the 3rd best team in the league imo after Bolts and Avs. We have a huge shot at the cup. If we win a cup will we still complain about marner making 10.9M? It's time to enjoy. We are about to begin our quest for the cup. Marner/Matthews etc will be pivotal in leading us there.

    Enjoy the greatest leaf team in 30 years and the 2 best leaf players since Gilmour's insane 93 season.

    Just pointing out the inconsistent logic of your arbitrary valuation parameter

    Mitch pass inventor needs to stop going for the highlight reel play. Simple doesn't exist for him. That 2 on 0 was an embarassment. So far again when Matthews is on, Marner is too. When Matthews isn't, Marner isn't either. Marner should do something without 34 beside him.

    You brought up Marner vs Kane. And then brought in McDavid. These are your comparisons.

    Both guys could have been a little more selfish there and probably would have been the right decision.

    Pass is the right play, just seemed to overthink it and ran himself out of space.
