He makes a well-reasoned argument, that's for sure.

I thought it was a little wordy.

Me too. I thought long form journalism died in 2007?

I'm glad the Leafs took Marner but I don't think Carolina is terribly upset with Hanifin.

A good recap/analysis of some of Marner's highlight goals and assists so far this season:

To recap, Mitch Marner is going to be a damn good player in this league for a very long time. It couldn’t hurt him to add some size and get bigger as he ages. Regardless, he has already shown in the early stage of his NHL career that he does not lack the skills and hockey IQ needed to compete at this high of a level.

My personal guess — he’ll be the next Nicklas Backstrom. Playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs, overshadowed by Auston Matthews, but still a remarkable and fantastic player. Backstrom is both of those things, and can be overshadowed by Alex Ovechkin.

I think that for casual NHL fans, and specifically those outside of Toronto that don't watch him night-in and night-out, Marner is going to be really underrated for many, many years.

But I thought Nylander was looking like our Backstrom...?

The question is which one is our Nicklas Backstrom and which one is our Niklas Backstrom.

I think Marner has to be Nick and Nylander has to be Nik.

GIF-heavy breakdown of Marner's game vs the Penguins.

Like he was with London, Marner seems to know where everyone is on the ice. He's clearly being held back right now by Bozak and JvR.
