Don't know why there is so much homerism for Marner. He certainly isn't worth near 11m compared to Aho's 8.5m
Last two seasons
Aho. 124 games 62 goals, 61 assists, 133 points , plus 26, Playoffs. 19 games. 9 goals. 14 assists. 23 points plus 11
Marner 114. 26. 98. 134. 27. 11. 0. 4. 4. 0
In what world is Marner the superior player?
I don't understand what you are trying to show here you completely failed to represent the stats in an easy way to read. I am going to break it down for you.
Aho on his ELC which earned him his $8,460,250 contract:
242 games, 83 goals, 114 assists, 197 points, 0.81 points per game. 15 playoff games, 5 playoff goals, 7 playoff assists, 12 playoff points, 0.80 playoff points per game. Combined 257 games, 209 points, 0.81 points per game.
- Really impressive stats, offensively gifted, but his defensive metrics are absolutely terrible. You can look at JFresh, Evolving-Hockey and Dom luszczyszyn's models, they will back that up.
Marner on his ELC which earned him his $10,903,00 contract:
241 games, 67 goals, 157 assists, 224 points, 0.93 points per game. 20 playoff games, 5 playoff goals, 12 playoff assists, 17 playoff points, 0.85 playoff points per game. Combined 261 games, 241 points, 0.92 points per game.
- Marner obviously has the better 3 years during their ELC's which FAIRLY awards him a bigger contracts than Aho. Not only is he scoring more points in both the regular season and in the playoffs per game, he is also a MUCH greater defensive player with his defensive impact sky rocketing in his final year of his ELC. All this is backed by JFresh, Evolving-Hockey and Dom luszczyszyn's models.
Aho after he signed his contract:
124 games, 62 goals, 61 assists, 123 points, 0.99 points per game. 19 playoff games, 9 playoff goals, 14 play off assists, 23 playoff points, 1.21 playoff points per game. Combined 143 games, 146 points, 1.02 points per game pace.
- Just like earlier, really impressive stats, especially goalscoring. Defensive liability still that is backed up by JFresh, Evolving-Hockey and Dom luszczyszyn's models. Unreal in the playoffs.
Marner after he signed his contract:
114 games, 36 goals, 98 assists, 134 points, 1.18 points per game. 12 playoff games, 0 playoff goals, 8 playoff assists, 8 playoff points, 0.67 playoff points per game. Combined, 126 games, 142 points, 1.13 points per game.
- Marner has really come into his own now. He is scoring at an elite pace while being one of the most defensively responsible players in the league getting the keys to both the Leafs power play and penalty kill. Obviously on an other level to Aho.
Overall Aho stats:
400 games, 159 goals, 196 assists, 355 points, 0.89 points per game.
Overall Marner stats:
387 games, 108 goals, 275 assists, 383 points, 0.99 points per game.
Marner was more productive during their ELC which rightfully award him a higher contract. He scores more points than Aho, he plays more minutes than Aho, he is much better defensively than Aho, and has now developed into becoming the 2nd best two-way winger in the league. Aho is a phenomenal player, but this breakdown, plus the eye test, plus the analytical models have Marner as the better and more complete player compared to Aho. Still I am the homer in this discussion? I have just destroyed your argument with facts that prove my points, while you only have subjectivity to prove your point. Fight another battle, this isn't the one you are going to win my friend.
