They've got Mitchy looping down behind the breakout defenseman and hitting the neutral zone with speed to attack the trap wall in full flight. Numerous times Mitchy has gotten past the forwards, made a move on the defensemen and ripped off a shot. A few times he's scored now. Willy can do it too. Awesome.

I would like to see the Leafs eventually try Marner at center. I think it would give him more open ice for his creativity. I think he's committed enough to become responsible defensively. He's 50% on a small sample size of face-off this year, and it's not like he doesn't have any experience playing center in junior (not same as NHL), but at least he's played there. If Bozak goes, that would allow either Brown or Kapanen to slide into the right side, and that line would probably be just as good, if not better. I like Willie with Matthews.

I think the issue there is that he'd be much more likely to be at a physical disadvantage when playing against the other team's center than he is now against wingers and defencemen.

Mitchy getting his 93 from the London Knights would've been a good fit, considering the similarities in body-type combined with a high standard of play  ;)
