Status: Among the game’s 10 best players, arguably the best right-winger in the NHL.

Expectations: Should finally crack the 100-point mark this season and lead the Leafs on both special teams’ units.

Notes: In each of the past four seasons, injuries, and games lost to the Pandemic are the only things that have prevented Marner from posting 4 straight 100 point seasons.

Lack of playoff success has hurt his rankings around the league and he has become somewhat underrated.
