    Wow, some notables on that list

    - MacKinnon all the way at #3
    - Stamkos drops from #17 to #21 even after the year he had last season
    - Burns drops from #8 to #28
    - Eichel drops from #21 to #33
    - Benn and Seguin feel too low

    Before the whining starts, it's only taking into account the previous season to project the next season.

    So it's a list of who will be the best players of the 2018-2019 season

    I think even the most optimistic Leafs fans won't complain about him being that low.

    I'm shocked Matthews, Tavares, Marner, Nylander and Rielly aren't top 5.....

    20 players were over PPG (82) last season, how do you fit 70 point players into the top ten?

    It's an improvement for him since last season Matthews was ranked #10. Besides him Marner moved up from #50 to #45 and Tavares stayed at #16.

    Matthews seems a bit high, but I suppose they're extrapolating for his injury last season. I wouldn't complain too much about that, especially if you factor in any potential Canadian/media bias.

    MacKinnon seems rather high for one phenomenal season.

    The bottom third of this list is... pretty bad... A lot there that I disagree with.

    Rinne, Bobrovsky, Seguin, Giroux, Kucherov, Voracek, Kessel, MacKinnon.

    Players fortunate enough to make TSN's elite list, get bumped off, and then jump back on.

    Rinne and MacKinnon each did it twice. :laugh:

    Tarasenko at 37. Amazing.

    I'd also quit watching if we traded Pietrangelo for Voracek. Or about 8 other guys ahead of him.

    So why would Leafs fans complain about him being at 8 then?

    Not having Mackinnon and Hall on this list at all last year shows you how much this list means.

    I have no problems with him being ranked #8. It's the people who hate the Leafs who will have a problem with that. Last year they went crazy when he was ranked #10.

    Huh? Who’s complaining about him at 8? That’s his correct spot.

    Kessel seems a bit low, Matthews definitely too high. Guess the Toronto factor makes him better than last seasons Hart and Selke winner (who also outproduced him), as well as an annual Norris candidate
