I figured he deserved his own thread. Nice article about MM at MLHS:

I was thinking the same thing.

Make haste to the backcheck, my invisible steed! We must not let the foul Bruin a chance to claim the puck!

Seems a little unnecessarily mean spirited. (the article, not your post)

Still too early in both their careers to declare one a winner and one a bust.   Marner has 6 games played and Strome has 3.

It *appears* the Leafs have the better player right now, but who the hell knows?  We got lucky.  Had Arizona taken Marner at 3 the Leafs probably would have taken Strome at 4 (or maybe Hanifin)

Really? The author is actually a pretty big Strome fan. He's mostly just preaching patience. If anything I thought my post was a little more mean spirited ;) (in a tongue-in-cheek way).

Meh. I thought the trudeau meme was a bit much.

He's looked less seasoned and sure of himself than Nylander or Matthews, but he also looks like he might be quickest and most agile of the three. The (relative) lack of production is, I think, both Bozak and JvR are often surprised by his passes -- whereas Nylander and Matthews are comparably skilled -- and also bad luck or figuring out the timing/space he has to get shots off. He's shooting 5.9% right now. Hopefully, when Nylander and Matthews slow down, Marner figures things out and heats up for a bit...

Pffftt!  Nylander and Matthews aren't slowing down.  They're both going to score 130pts in their rookie seasons.
