I took a look at the stats. Kadri and Marner got put together on January 24th 2018 against the Avs. In the final 33 games of the regular season with either Marleau or JVR rotating on the left wing, Marner put up 36 points for a points per game avarage of 1.09. That would’ve put him on pace for 90 points in 82 games. He finished the season with only 70 points, however keep in mind he played the majority of his first 49 games on the fourth line. If you also include what he did in the post season, then it’s 45 points in 40 games for a 1.125 points per game average.
So while most Leaf fans suggest he’s worth 6 million at most and would be a fringe player without Tavares, it is obviously not true but 11 million for a 90 point winger?</div></div>
Panarin's a 87 point player, and he gets $11,6M...
Matthews a 73 point player, and he gets $11,6M...
Marner at $11,3M being a 94 point player isn't that ludicrous at all, when you look at the comparables.
