Marner remains confident in the face of pressureSeptember 14, 2021 | 01:58 PM
Mitch Marner understands the pressure that surrounds the Toronto Maple Leafs, but he is still confident in the team and in himself.
Analysis: "The pressure is definitely on," said Marner. "But for us, we can't let that doubt get into our minds. We have got to realize that we are a great team, and we have to hold ourselves up to high accountability." He is keeping things focused on the present and he isn't concerning him with what comes next or what could happen. Marner amassed 20 goals and a team-leading 67 points in 55 games last season, but there was plenty of criticism of his play during the postseason. He plans to make up for that by attacking more and getting more pucks to the net.
