<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>F50marco</b></div><div>I'm a Habs fan and have no love for Toronto but Hanifin is by no means a comparable to Marner in anything other than draft status. Hanifin is being shopped because he hasn't been too good this year. Contract aside, Marner is one of the higher point producing players in the league right now and since he's entered the league. Not sure how anyone can argue Marner for Hanifin makes sense.
Hanifin can still be both a good player and not worth Marner. That is also an option you know.</div></div>
Toronto Media, Canadian media. Same difference. TSLeafs, Leafsnet....
Marner's booming point totals come when he's paired with Matthews and Tavares, I'm not saying it's all down to his centres but they help A LOT. Hanifin has been fine from an analytical perspective, which is why Toronto are being linked with him, he;s been better than any D man in Calgary from that standpoint. When you factor the Contract in again and Marner making the sun, moon and the next eclipse, the value becomes very similar again. When you then factor in that Marner is close to done developing, and Hanifin still has an incredibly high ceiling, it becomes a reasonable ask from treeliving
