Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Solid start to season

Cirelli has one goal and two assists in four games this season. He's the team's most versatile forward and a Selke candidate.

When it comes to Mitch Marner it’s always complicated

After the first round playoff exit last spring it seemed all but certain that there were going to be some high expectations attached to Mitch Marner and a demand for him answering his critics. Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened and instead Mitch Marner has put up just one assist in the first four games, while averaging 22 minutes a night. Supporters of Mitch will point to the fact that the first three games were played without Auston Matthews. Critics of Marner will point to the fact that he was still playing with John Tavares, and as an $11M winger, it’s not an absurd expectation that he produce some offense himself.

Losing 5-1 and 5-0 to two of the projected worst teams in the league, an 0-4 record and only 3 goals scored is a stark contrast to the glories of June. This team has lost its leader and captain, its franchise goaltender, its Selke-contending top-6 centre, its centre of the future, and as a result, its identity.
