    Another Game where he looks miles off of being a generational Super Star.
    So far this Season he's had far too many games where he goes missing for the majority of play, and no sign of his supposed two way play.

    I think his overall game has regressed since his first 2 seasons. He used to dominate opposition with his all around game. This Year he'll score a Goal every other game but doesn't do much else for a supposed franchise Center.

    What? He had a BIG game a few nights ago, so we can expect him to coast for the next week or two.

    He amazes me because no matter how poor the effort, he manages to get a point per game. A cheap goal here, a second assist there, or maybe a Power Play tap in. He's blessed that way.

    imagine what he could achieve if he actually put the work in?

    It's the usual Matthews, he runs hot and cold.

    His compete level is noticeably down from his rookie season, but some of y'all are melodramatic. The entire team has tuned the coach out, the only guy who's definitely outplayed Matthews is Mikheyev.

    11.634 AAV; 3rd highest in the league; would be nice if it translated on ice.

    we waiting; anytime now would be nice........

    P.S. at least his line wasn't on the ice for a goal against;

    oh no wait a minute Nylander's super defensive play made it so difficult on the flyers

    I've been holding off on saying it but yeah.....it definitely looks like that right now. Matthews just isn't a very big factor if he isn't scoring the puck.

    He has a lot to work on, one of it is putting in consistent effort/aggression. If he plays like he's 6'3 he could be a dominant force night in and night out

    That is undebatable. He would be the best player on this team for 3 mill less than our highest paid guy

    This season is a wake up call for not only Mtthews but all the so called super stars on this team, if they can not win against the tough rivals then what's the point of how great they are

    A majority? He went on a streak of 5 of 6 games where he was invisible.

    if matthews put in the effort that draisaitl does then one can do the comparison

    compete level of matthews is not there; and the compete level of nylander is a JOKE.

    You people are why being a Leafs fan can be embarrassing sometimes.

    We go decades without having young star talent and we finally get some and this is what happens.

    He needs to play more engaged. HE shows flashes of it and absolutely dominates on the ice. Maybe throw a body check. Just one.

    Get mad even

    I suppose the best way to enjoy Matthews, Marner and Nylander and their growing pains is to just lower expectations of perfection now. They’re getting paid so you expect them to be finished products but I guess you have to let it play out.
