    Virtually a tie. Voting Toronto because of having a centre.

    Matthews > Laine

    Nylander = Ehlers

    Toronto, fairly easily, IMO.

    Really close here I would rank them like so

    Matthews
    Laine
    Ehlers
    Nylander

    Matthews is pretty clearly the better player and Nylander and Ehlers are pretty much equal but that could change if Willy becomes a force at center

    Weird. I think Laine>Matthews right now, but I have Nylander>Ehler's. I voted Toronto.

    odd take
    I'll accept people picking Matthews,
    but ehlers got 27 goals and 3 more points
    nylander 14 goals

    And Ehlers will maybe have 100pts... you work with what you currently have not with what you might have. That’s called being optimistically biased...

    Nylander will end up with more points than Ehlers by the end of the year

    I didn't realize that goals were the only stat that mattered in hockey, McDavid is then not even a top 10 player

    McDavid is 8th in goals. I know that's not the point of argument but I would like to point that out.

    Franchise Centers aren’t as common as Generational Goal Scorers though?

    What? I've been to the Jets game at ACC the last 4 years and it's been 1/3 leafs jerseys, 1/3 Jets jerseys and 1/3 suits showing up in the second period

    Stop into Earls on King on March 31st.

    Jets have a lot of opposing jerseys in their building because they've only had a team for 6 years. Fans built alliances with other teams when they didn't have a team

    Toronto is a cosmopolitan city with a lot of immigration from other Canadian cities. So you're also gonna see a ton of opposing jerseys at ACC

    I think that's the biggest problem with leaf fans, We have a huge elite goal scoring winger already and they have a ?

    #1 Center
    Young team that is being carried mostly by players under 25
    A bright future and pretty good looking present
    Solid Management
    Realistic hope that the Cup drought will end within the next 5 years
