Toronto Maple Leafs: Mitch Marner Needs To Be Taken Seriously

Is Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mitch Marner the most underrated superstar in the NHL?

The Toronto Maple Leafs have two of the best players in the NHL with Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner, yet Marner is always cast as the Robin to Matthews being Batman.

Despite outscoring Matthews in four of their first seven seasons, Marner always plays second fiddle. Maybe it’s because of his size, his happy-go-lucky attitude, or the fact that he’s not as lethal of a goal-scorer as Matthews, but Marner needs a lot more love than he gets.

I’d be one of the first people to admit when I was wrong, and my take on wanting to trade Marner is one of the dumbest takes in hockey.
