I don't usually care for what Button has to say, but I did enjoy watching the video game highlight circles track Marner and Matthews around the ice.

It was a very fitting graphics package, because those two really look like video game characters that you're using with cheat codes.

Yeah, still unproven at the NHL level. But boy, do I ever wish they hit video game cheater status with the Leafs. Marner was just dummying the OHL.

Stupid TSN blocking all video traffic outside of Canada.  I can't watch it if I wanted to.

He basically plays some video clips to highlight how Matthews plays similarly to Marner's center on the Knights (Christian Dvorak). Like when Marner threads a seam with a cross ice pass, Dvorak is there to receive and bury the puck bar down. Matthews did the same thing at the World Championships. He helpfully circles Marner and Matthews (and some times Dvorak) with glowing circles around their skates to remind you which players he's talking about in the clip. Marner is so fast that he has a glowing trail.

I'm sure you could find two cherry picked similar plays for a lot of players though.  Either one would probably look great with many different players so I'm not sure Button's onto anything too revelatory there.

Marner is good at threading passes.
Matthews is good at scoring on good passes.

They're both good at playing hockey.

Mitch Marner will adjust strategy for Maple Leafs training camp

Quote
Like so many 18-year-old rookie hopefuls and first-round picks, Marner said he suffered from a case of the jitters in 2015. Afraid to make a mistake, he opted for the safe, simple play in camp instead of trying to create scoring opportunities — the strength of a kid who models his game after Knights alum Patrick Kane.

“That’s what was wrong with my game,” he said. “This year I have to play my game, play the game I’m used to playing and not changing it up, instead of trying to make no mistakes at all — because that’s when bad things happen.”

Sounds good to me.   When you play afraid of making mistakes that's usually when mistakes happen.  He's talking the talk let's see if he can walk the walk in camp.

Not much in the way of real info here but apparently Marner's mom has retired and is in charge of bulking him up this summer:

Should be pretty beneficial for him that he lives so close to the Leafs practice facility.
