Wrong. Marner has better vision and is a smarter player, which is saying a lot because Eichel is elite there himself.

I think Eichel may be a marginally better player right now, if that, and Marner is in his rookie season.

Don't even start with this Marner stuff.

In a year or two if not this year you'll realize how absolutely ridiculous it is to mention them
In the same breath when Eichel is absolutely ELITE as in 1B with Sid, Connor and maybe Geno-Kane as 1A.

BTW Marner just matched Eichel's rookie season point total in 15 less games. But go on about how ridiculous it is for him to be compared to Eichel.

It's weird how despite his production that Eichel is a fairly bad possession player. Buffalo fans, can you speak to this? Does Bylsma give him awful linemates 5v5? He looks so good with the puck on his stick.

I think Marner and Eichel will put up comparable assists but Marner isn't going to be anywhere near the consistent 40 goal threat that Eichel is IMO.

Who cares? Eichel is the better player. Not close.

He's been a good possession player for a while now. Also now doesn't have linemates who would rather dump the puck than give it to him.

He is one of the smoothest skaters, puck handlers and shooters I have ever seen. Very effortless looking player.

Why is this even a thread. Its as embarrassing as the thread above "Are the Leafs the new Blackhawks" or something to that extent.

Leafs have good players, Sabres have good players. Leafs have a better coach and it shows in the standings and player usage. Enough said.

Who's Mariner? I think Marner is very close to him. Considering half the people here are of the opinion Matthews = or > Eichel, then how is it so absurd to compare Marner to him? Marner is better than Matthews, though not by much.

Thinking that either of those guys is currently better than Eichel does not qualify as an opinion. It's just being wrong.

Not comparable. Eichel went straight to pros while Marner played another year in juniors. Marner wasn't even ready to play in the pros when Eichel put up 56 pts.

He's easily going to be a top 5 forward in the league for the next 10 years.

Once again...

Marner is in his D+2 season. If Marner was put into the NHL in the same year Eichel was, he would struggle. It's silly to compare their respective rookie seasons.

He's also almost 7 months younger than Eichel.

Every thread should be about how awesome the leafs rookies are. Not off topic at all. All threads are leaf threads. Who even is Jack Michael?

and Panarin had more points in his rookie season then McDavid, that means he must always be the better player.

Also could you imagine Eichel in juniors last year? Swap Marner and Eichel last year and I think juniors would have kicked Jack out of the league and into the AHL. It would be cheating, dudes been built like a grown man since he was 14.
