    The vast majority of Leaf fans know he is getting paid, the people saying otherwise are other teams fans trolling. Don't try and put that nonsense on us.

    All good, I was just responding to the guys comment and his comment about Leaf fans. I’m not saying I agree with his assessment or generalizations of Leaf fans on this subject

    I said “some leafs posters”. Not “all leafs posters” or “many leafs posters” or just “leafs posters”(which could infer all).

    I wasn’t painting all yalls the same.

    It's nice that you expect us to win the Cup but I have to question the value of your assessment when you do not even know a sweep takes four games.

    Boy you sure got us with your fearless psychic predications. In what world do a hopeful prediction equate to any kind of comment anyone will take seriously?

    Try again.

    Epic Fail.

    see that's the thing McDavid was overpaid, not saying he isn't elite or a great player, I just believe Chia jumped the gun with that contract....if he had a SC in his trophy case then maybe, but he didn't

    basically he screwed up the balance handing out those two contracts

    Auston Matthews - 40 goal rookie season winning the Calder. Missed half the season this year hurt with playing hurt the other half and still managed over PPG. All this at 20 years old. Yeah, he sucks.


    Most choking team of our era? At least Toronto makes the playoffs... more than we can say for your garbage team. Even if the Leafs lose, we still got there!

    I think ultimately it will come down to the contract of Jack Eichel. He has to get more $ than Eichel. If he doesn't, he has a bad agent.

    At the end of the day, unless he wants to sign for less to keep more guys together (still no guarantee other guys will do the same) he’s going to be getting somewhere between 13-17% of the total cap. Whatever the cap ends up being is doing to determine what he gets. That’s what elite #1 C get at his age.

    So you agree with me, calling them “big 3” is a joke.

    And the chokingest joke plSyoff team of our era is Washington. That’s who I was referring to.

    I'd have to agree with all the other posters on here.

    He's an average 1st line C at best....but most definitely will be paid like McDavid money...

    Because....F*** Toronto am I right boys?

    Time to move to Philly....where I can buy a condo for less than my parking spot.

    Overrated? Let's look at the facts:

    McDavid:

    Back-to-back Art Ross Trophy wins (2nd youngest to do so)
    Hart Trophy
    Ted Lindsay Trophy
    Rookie season he was Rookie of the Month 3(!!) times in a shortened season (October, February, March)
    NHL All-Rookie Team
    Back-to-back All-Star Games (with Captaincy no less)
    NHL First All-Star Team

    He also got injured during his rookie year, where he missed 37 games and ALSO put up a point per game, which he's done all 3 seasons he's been in the league BTW, which Matthews can't say.

    Matthews:

    Calder Trophy
    Back-to-back All Star games
    NHL Rookie of the Month (December)
    NHL All-Rookie Team

    When it comes down to it bro, Matthews is the one who is overrated.

    In the playoffs, yeah he was better than McDavid. Don't try and twist my words though.

    Average in point production but his goals and possession set him apart. His production per60 is also very high so he obviously still has room to grow.

    Playoffs are good man. We're watching your team being destroyed by the Bruins. Another 1st round exit coming up. We'll see you when you reach the outside.

    Leaf fans/media tell me Matthews is 2x more valuable than Laine because he plays center.

    I'd love to see if you could find a quote or source to back this up. Or should we just write it off as more hysterical hyperbole from people with nothing better to do than try and troll Leafs fans.

    You’re so persecuted.

    https://www.tsn.ca/matthews-or-laine-sorting-through-the-loaded-calder-trophy-race-1.676448

    “Matthews gets the slight edge on right-winger Laine because of how well he's performed at the more challenging centre position”

    That took two seconds to find if you bothered to look. There is plenty out there.

    That's not an acceptable comeback....it's like you trolled yourself.

    I may have to report this.
