Shot velocity isnt there yet either, that will come as he fills out. He has proven to play well in the OJHL this year, he deserves alot of credit there. Like I said before he is a smart hockey player who can find open ice, the fastest direction change in the 97 group and he can stick handle inside a phonebooth. Its a size and strength issue right now. Marner right now has the most leeway to move up or down in this draft, his size during the OHL cup will have a massive impact on his draft ranking.
If they get to the OHL Cup. LOL

To compare him to Fabbri is a serious compliment to Marner today. Fabbri is more of a complete player, scorer, playmaker, hitter. But Fabbri will be more susceptable to injury than Marner.
