The Toronto Maple Leafs fan base is eagerly waiting for Brad Treliving to make his first move as General Manager. With major expected changes everyone has their own opinion on what the Maple Leafs should do.

Despite Marner's stellar regular season play, the talented forward has been unable to take over a playoff game as many would have expected. Former Maple Leafs enforcer Jay Rosehill chimed on what his thoughts about Marner:

"For what you can get for Mitch Marner [in a trade]... he's so soft. I don't even know if he can pick up the Stanley Cup. I just don't think he can take you to the promised land. You see how beaten up the Panthers were at the end of the Finals - that's what it takes... I just fear that every single time, Marner is going to fall off because he wasn't willing to go to war. He's just a fresh-faced, nice kid who likes to do toe drags... but he's not going to go to war for you and I just can't picture him hoisting that Stanley Cup after being beaten up for two months," said Rosehill of Marner's failure to adapt in the post-season.




It's surprising to hear Rosehill chime in with this take, given at no point in his career did he ever play an NHL playoff game. Do you think Marner has what it takes to lead a team to the playoff success?
