    LOL. Standard response to being hit with the reality that Matthews is a good player not the greatest of all time: "Your team sucks AND i HATE you! RAWR RAWR"

    Though the concept of ELC and RFA is also equally ridiculous. It allows teams to pay some players way less than they deserve during the best years of their career.

    McDavid was one of the best players in the NHL as a rookie yet (at least before bonuses) was making less than a million per year.

    Go ahead read my posts. They rate Matthews accurately as a top20-30ish player in the league. Not my fault you SPAZ out over reality.

    He'd be considered a top 3 conservatively. And the Number 1 more accurately. The same cannot be said of Matthews.

    You don't think McDavid is a top 3 player?

    What are you “laughing” about? Don’t be pissy about the bruins exposing your team. McDavid is way better than Matthews.

    Its a fact cause its a fact. A 2 time Art Ross winner is atleast a Top 3 Player. Do you disagree? Show your true colors Leaf fan.

    Remind me again why Mcdavid is relevant to this discussion? Or is this more about some beef you clearly have with the Leafs?

    You never struck fear into the heart of Al Gore and they didnt have to call in Kurt Russell to bring you down. You're no Matthews or Kennedy, lets be real here.

    I have a hard time believing that a players best years are between the ages of 18-21. Nor do I think a rookie, no matter how good he is, should be making more than ELC money.
