    I have seen your bias against Finnish players for years. Just continue on your journey.

    I disagree that they are equal players in the regular season. I think Rantanen is a better player in the regular season in addition to the playoffs. He scores more goals and is a beast when it comes to fighting for pucks along the boards. In the playoffs this is amplified even more. Rantanen does things that don't show up on the scoresheet but benefit his team. Marner does things that don't show up on the scoresheet too like turn the puck over and take dumb penalties. MacKinnon and Rantanen are built for playoff hockey. It won't be long before they just start getting bored with the regular season, coast through it and wait for the playoffs to turn it up three levels. Kind of like Golden State a few years ago.

    This thread is amazing read. Especially hot takes from February when Marner was 1.5PPG and i quote tier or two above Rantanen

    Good call man but its mainly Seth Jones

    Same here, also being called "crazy" saying he would become more of a shooter 200+shots, as he's clearly still rounding out his game...

    I honestly believe that the Av's stars are only going 90% for the regular season already. They have another gear for playoffs. Mackinnon especially.

    90% might be too high honestly. Its ridiculous how even Makar gets better in the playoffs.

    They are pretty close but if i had to pick one of them as my top line winger i would take Rantanen. I just think i would have a better shot at winning with him than Marner.

    The boy with a little more talent versus the man with a little less talent. I'll take Mikko Rantanen.

    So the only guys ahead of him are the best player ever, one of the best goalscorers ever, 3rd best player ever, McInnis and the guy who played with Mike Bossy and is in his own right a top player in the history of the league.

    Marner should tear up his contract, bury his skates and never play again.

    Just look at this year's playoff results and you'll have your answer. The only way you can vote for Marner in this poll is:
    A) You've never seen Rantanen play
    B) You're a homer

    This isn't even close.

    Yes, especially in the playoffs Marner is a beast!
