<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>LeafsFanForSomeReason</b></div><div>Okay, but Rantanen's deal was signed after Marner's, so why isn't he getting paid what Marner is despite putting up better numbers heading into their negotiations? Because Marner is overpaid. Rantanen is a great comparable. They are from the same draft, both play wing, put up similar point totals, signed for the same term in the same offseason. Sure, you can't say "They should have based it off of the Rantanen deal", but these are two players who should have gotten similar amounts.</div></div>
You're only taking into consideration point totals and think that's the reason why they're comparable? ... Marner's better defensively, he's a leader in the locker room (alternate captain), tax situation is incredibly different in Colorado than it is in Ontario. All of those lead Marner to get more. You can argue Marner is overpaid, sure. But to say that he should have signed for what Rantenen signed for is just false.
