Marner makes any center better. I remember when Naz had him for a while they were great.
JT a loss of course, but they've got the depth to stay competitive. Silver lining, knock on wood,
on a team with two #1 lines, a loss of their goalie or top defenceman would hurt even more.

Agreed Disco, I'm not sure what we'd do without Muzzin (or Andersen)

It puts Marner in the position as the sole superstar on the line, which is good I think. Maybe it'll motivate him to step-up.

I'd say highest on the list of players that, being injured, would most affect ability to win on a
night-to-night basis would be Andersen, followed by their best defense-men (Rielly, Muzzin, Barrie),
followed by their top guys up front (Matthews, Marner, Tavares, Nylander). I remember Losing Gardiner
and Dermott during that stretch last year was a major blow.

How bad could the injury even be?  He scored a goal after breaking his finger.

Well, if JT is a robot,😁, two weeks is just fine.  That also explains why he scored the goal after breaking finger.  🤓
