As excited as Marner gets when he scores, he seems to love it even more when his teammates have success.

I love that and haven't seen it to this extent since Mats.

Like, look at the way he uses his his body to shield it from the defender and gain position so he can make his two, and then breathtaking third move. Awesome.

Can you imagine how ridiculous he would be had he been sent back to London?

They'd need new scoreboards league-wide to accommodate triple-digit scores.

Honestly, there are limits to how much more ridiculous he could be vs. last year. He scored at a 200 point pace in the playoffs last year.

Mentioned this in the game thread

Is Marner the Malkin to Matthews' Crosby?

Others suggested Kane to Toews?

Either way, potentially rather exciting...

The reason I went with Kane/Toews is because Marner is a winger of similar ilk (and junior path). And Matthews is more like Malkin anyways.

The key difference being that at 19 Marner is probably already better defensively than Kane ever was.

Way less troublesome off the ice too.

What do you guys think of playing him on the PK?

I could see him and Matthews both getting secondary minutes in 1-3 years, sure. That also led me to maybe a more appropriate comparison for the two: Datsyuk/Zetterberg (from when the Wings were still good, obviously).

I hope it's the former.  I'd be lying if I didn't say I'd be disappointed if Matthews didn't have a better statistical career than Toews.  He has the potential to be more than a 60-70 point guy.

I know we shouldn't do this, it's still early days, but Dylan Strome got another game with the Coyotes last night.  No points and his hooking penalty in overtime led to the game winning goal via a penalty shot.  The 'Yotes can use him two more times before deciding on whether he returns to Erie or not.  Thus far this season he has a single NHL point, an assist, in 7 games.

For anybody who wants to see Marner's goal accompanied by Joe Bowen's call of it:
