Mitch Marner's Dad

Next summer when the Leafs sign Marner... whether it be 9, 10, 11, 12, whatever million. At his press conference after, they also announce him as captain. There is no doubt in my mind that Mitch should be the captain of this team. Watching his play on the ice all year, especially in the playoffs, he is clearly the heartbeat of this team. The Leafs are going wherever Marner and Freddy can take them. I have a feeling they're going to make him Captain. And they should.
IMO the leafs are stupid to name anyone else captain. Nobody tries harder for this team and leads by example better than Marner does. He gets in done night in and night out and NEVER takes a shift off. He is a born leader, heart of a lion. Marner is one of the only few players on this team who never takes a shift off, never takes a game off, he is 110% all the time. The people that compare Nylander to him should just stop watching hockey. Nylander is not even close, Matthews is not even close, let alone Nylander.
