    The average GA for a team in the West Division (Colorado's division) is 164. The average GA for a team in the North is 162. The narrative that the North is bad is stupid and old.

    That being said I do take Rantanen here. Just wanted to point out stupid logic.

    And to think the Leafs were going to trade down from pick 4 to take Rantanen.

    God why didn't we..

    I'll take the guy on a 15 game playoff point streak and 23 more playoff points in 6 more games.

    But maybe I'm a biased avs fan..

    Keep dreaming.

    Playoffs:

    Rantanen 38GP 15G 33A 48P +17

    Marner 32GP 5G 18A 23P -3

    One is not like the other. I can see Marner contributing more when it counts - for the opponent...

    Feels a bit like last year's Makar / Hughes debate at this point.

    Definitely not Marner, dude is a big game choker. Maybe Leafs fans will finally put some value into playoff performances because its not even close between these two.

    Damn. Rantanen is a stud in playoffs. 38 games is starting to be a decent sample size to boot. Over 1.2ppg is elite.

    Marner has issues. 0.71ppg is not nearly good enough for a player of his caliber.

    Playoffs does factor in, but is there a huge difference simply because Marner has sucked in the playoffs? I'm not sure I think there is.

    I think the playoffs is the difference between the two. In the regular season they’re the same level players, similar PPG, but ones a better scorer vs playmaker. Both top 5 wingers and both franchise center pieces. But Marner scores at a .78ppg pace in the playoffs where Rantanen is a 1.26ppg. That monumental difference is what puts Rantanen over Marner.

    There would have to be a very significant gap in their regular season play to still have Marner ahead when factoring in playoffs as well. There isn't.

    Lmao can't believe i voted for 16. He might have one of the worst contracts in the league. Regular season great, playoff beer leaguer.

    I felt like this was troll vote. Watched a lot of Avs and Leafs this year and Mikko is at another level imo. I mean totally different players, size, skill set .. but I would take Mikko over Mitch all day and I love Mitch (playoffs excluded).

    Wow. Seems like just yesterday that I was getting admonished by Leafs fans for not accepting Marner as the de facto 2nd best player from the 2015 draft.

    Problem here is, Marner is not playing with fringe PO team. He's integral part of a legitimate contender on paper. I could understand and give him some leeway if he and Matthews were dragging the team in to playoffs, a'la Selanne/Kariya ducks. There just simply is no reason for this. Marner can still have a turnaround and god knows he's talented as they come. But as long as Rants keeps up with him in RS and absolutely destroys him in PO's I can't anymore vote for Marner. I retracted my vote of too close to call and voted Rants.

    There are so many things wrong with this post that I don’t even know where to start.
