    [MOD] he's injury prone. Will he ever play more than 60 games in a season?

    Injury prone, would be a star if he knew how to stay healthy for more than 40 games

    Looks like he isn't going to put up 70 points this season either.

    Suffices to say Auston Matthews will have not given anywhere near 12 million value to Toronto in any of his ELC years. This injury could be a blessing in disguise for Leafs, as how do you justify playing an injury prone point per game player highest salary in the league?

    Just a reminder that there are a ton of star players who had tons of injury history in their younger playing days and eventually figured it all out. Barkov was one, Crosby another. Even Malkin went almost a decade without playing a full season.

    So this doesn't mean he is somehow a bad player. It just really sucks :/

    Yeah that's the positive I am taking from this. This likely just bumped 1M off his contract. I don't think he gets more than JT right now unless he comes back and has a monster second half and playoffs.

    The Leafs will be fine, Matthews will without a doubt still get his 12 million, this just means he will miss out on personal awards this season.

    Can you sign now Nylander, spot is open!
    So we can close that silly thread.

    And finally, how will this affect Matthews Fortnite scores? will his reaction and movement be affected by his injury??

    Do you have a source on this or are you just trying to get a reaction out of Leaf fans? I've been following the story and everything being reported is that Nylander wants 8M which is not market value. So there is no low ball unless you can link another source.

    I believe the over/under on his average games per season is currently set at 20

    He played 82 games in his rookie season and only missed 20 games last year. Much too soon to label him a band-aid boy. He will get paid (12+ mil) regardless of this injury.

    And this is why depth is so important.
    Matthews can fully heal without needing to rush back.

    I'm not sure how one "figures out" injuries. Just need to play properly and you get 82 games a year guaranteed apparently. Also didn't know that Barkov was 30 and seems to be one season removed from 20 games missed.

    Also how does being injury prone mean you're bad? Why even defend such a dumb stance.
