No doubt you take Marner hands down over Miller from a regular season point producing pov. But in the playoffs, Mitch has shown he's hit and miss. Thats not me spinning, you just have to look at the two appearances he got skunked. He also doesn't bring any physical play to make up for it when he's not scoring. The caveat to your statement is that the entire Toronto Maple Leafs squad has shown they're hit and miss come playoff time. Team game at the end of the day. They hit enough to get to game seven but can't close it out. Any way you spin it, whether he's worth his salary come playoff time or not, 33 points in 39 games tells me he's showing up and producing more often than not. He's also 4-5 years younger than Miller so the comparison isn't direct, you'd have a better picture if they were the same age but they aren't. Miller's likely peaked, I reckon Marner hasn't. Whether Marner is worth his salary come playoff thus far? That's another argument. But overall, yeah, I'd say Marner is better and when they both wrap up their careers the numbers probably indicate this. Ain't a physical player, ain't his game. Just like it ain't Petey's. Or Boeser's. Or Bo's for the most part. That's why you have other guys on the roster. I'd argue he brings better defensive attributes to the table though to counteract some of this. Believe what you want though, I don't have all day to go around in circles on this. Let's agree to disagree on who's better.
