    In the past year or so, Marner has been producing at an elite pace, top 10 in scoring as a matter of fact!

    Last 82 games (regular season + playoffs):
    33 Goals
    101 Points
    + 29

    Has he now surpassed Patrick Kane?

    Marner has achieved Patrick Kane levels in the regular season and now needs to sustain and match in the playoffs.

    Marner has surpassed Jack Eichel, however.

    No what?

    My question could be interpretted in a couple different ways, I guess.

    I meant to ask if he's better than Patrick Kane now, which isn't an absurd question....

    I could have framed the question another way... Will Marner become better than prime Patrick Kane? This is also a fair question, IMO.

    He has surpassed everyone on our team. The guy is simply among the top 10 players in the league.

    If you could have Gaudreau or Marner as your marquee player who do you pick?

    Marner will have to prove himself in the playoffs by setting up Tavares for 30 goals.

    He will not have proved himself. People will be accused of recency bias if they make that claim. He has always lived in everyone's shadow. He always gives credit to his team mates too. Crazy thing is that he is likely to get the lowest term contract of Matty, Johnny and Willy and still act like a team guy, while leading points

    IMO, i don't think we can say that till he has a big POs in the books , 13p in 13g is rock solid but that sample size is pretty small.

    Even though Marner got credit with a secondary assist, if it wasn't for his pass to Rielly there is no way Tavares is able to score a goal on this play.

    Bewildering to me how fast everyone gets their panties in a bunch when you trot out the idea that Marner might peak higher than Gaudreau. Marner is pacing for 110 points at the same age Johnny Hockey scored 64.

    I noticed those people who hate hearing that are obviously not Leafs fans and can't stand the idea that Marner is on track to becoming a better player, because they will have to admit the Leafs are doing well and made a great choice in drafting Marner.

    1st liner, melander matthews need to be 2nd line. Johnny and Mitch are consistently good both ends of the rink.

    It’s too bad that marner will always be in the shadow of Matthews. He deserves to be at the all star game before anyone on this team. There is no one on the leafs better at seeing the game and making plays out of nothing. His talent is insane and he has a constant motor.

    Last night he passed the puck to I think Gardiner and at the last minute the puck bounced over his stick and the New Jersey player had a chance for a two on one but marner anticipated the play and was already coming back to cover the second New Jersey player.

    He is our best player and by that I mean he makes anyone playing on his line better. As far as I’m concerned Matthews hasn’t the same drive as Mitch.

    Last year in the playoffs against Boston their coach said it the best

    We keep knocking marner down but he gets right back up. He is like a hound on the puck. He wants it.

    He's unbelievable. Few people make that pass last night to Reilly, backhand, cross ice, tape to tape. Man what a play, what a player!

    Who is that now? I'm assuming they've changed their name.
