    Pastrnak or Rantanen, both are great.

    60-40 on Pasta.

    The guy just scored 44 goals at 19... that's FAR from "lol" worthy.

    Close call between any of Rantannen/Pastrnak/Laine with Marner just behind IMO.

    You watch Pasta, Rantanen, or Marner play and you will see dynamic game changing players consistently creating their own offense and getting chances. Laine is a different story, truly elite shot but when you watch him play he often looks useless out there if he's not getting his shot off. Laine is not in the same tier as any of these players and putting him above Marner is indeed lol worthy. Teams have figured out that if you don't let Laine get his shot off clean, then he isn't much of a threat because he is incapable of creating time and space for himself.

    Well this just isn't true at all. You dont get 44 goals from just having a great shot, not even close.

    No, but you can probably get 35 of them that way.
