    I learned today Mathews is just a product of Marner. Lol. One of the million reasons why you never take the mainboards seriously.

    I think the only consistent in their mind is they hate anything Leafs related. Lol

    another thing of beauty is seeing the mental gymnastics they go through after seeing us afford all our top stars and add players such as Foligno and Nash.

    As long as he’s a Leaf Matthews will never get the credit he deserves.

    he ruins himself on the PP. He's never been particularly good on the powerplay. No where close to as dominant as other elite players feel/are. I'd say its the weakest part of his game these days. Its also hard to really become a dominant special teams player when the team clearly has other players designated to controlling that aspect (Marner/Nylander spent most the time playmaking, or Rielly botching plays). So i'd say its at least 50/50 on his lack of PP success in comparison to high scoring peers

    He spent ~3 seasons incapable of T-ing up 1 timers that guys like Ovechkin/Stamkos/Pastrnak bread and butter

    Matthews is an extremely unselfish player which is not something you can say often about a leading goal scorer, and it is probably detrimental to his points totals. Which is bizarre, considering hes already a 50+ capable goal scorer while giving up plenty of opportunities in favor of making a play

    It's just crazy how many people's perceptions of Matthews are vastly skewed due to the fact that he's not had much powerplay time for a player of his caliber.

    Sounded pretty genuine.

    Growing up and playing hockey in Arizona, he probably didn't realize the level of stardom he could achieve in a place like Toronto.

    Just three more years until he gives up being the most famous person in a major media market, boatloads of (front-end paid) cash, endorsements, an elite team he's grown close to, world-class dining and entertainment and a literal ocean of top shelf p***y to go play in Arizona - which is both literally and figuratively a hockey desert.

    With four more games against the Canucks and two games in hand, the 8 goal cushion isn't looking like a lock.

    Connor “It’s only a number” Mcdavid is going so try hard to get 100 points that he’ll probably get 105 or something.

    If he uses up all his puck luck to achieve his regular season goals then it will eventually run out for a bit for him just in time for the playoffs.

    He needs 8 goals in 6 games just to tie Matthews now, and Matthews still has 4 games to go so
