Marner on the Spot

One of the important members of the Leafs, Mitch Marner, recently found himself in an awkward position during a radio interview.


Earlier this week, during an event for Marner's charity, the Marner Assist Fund, Maurie Sherman, a well-known voice from KiSS 92.5, confronted Marner with a challenging question. The question was to rank his former teammates, from the ones he will miss the most to the ones he will miss the least.

Marner's Rankings

Surprisingly, Marner agreed to Sherman's unusual request and provided the following rankings:

"1. Justin Holl
2. Alex Kerfoot
3. Michael Bunting
4. Luke Schenn
5. Noel Acciari
6. Ryan O'Reilly"

At first glance, it appears that Marner's rankings were mainly influenced by how long his teammates played for the Leafs.

Although Marner didn't seem bothered by the question, some of us found it a bit insensitive given the context of the event.
