For all the emphasis on the forecheck, the Golden Knights need an offensive merchant. Jonathan Marchessault is that guy, leading the Knights in goals (25). He's also good on the man advantage, scoring six power play goals. The reigning Conn Smythe winner sees the ice well and knows how to finish.

For the 49ers, Brock Purdy has been that guy. The NFL leader in QBR (72.7) has led the NFC Champions to two straight comeback victories. Purdy knows how to finish and has extended drives on his own. Like Marchessault, "Mr. Irrelevant" sees the field well, doing whatever it takes to win.
