    I agree, I never thought he was 'soft', but there was a vocal minority that did.

    Ive been intermittent fasting for about 4 years. I eat a fair amount for dinner and although I eat anything I want, I have always eaten cleanly. Best thing I ever did. Im in my mid 50s and now have a 31 waste to go with my 44 jacket. No off the rack suits anymore but dropping below 200 lbs really helped my plantars fasciitis. Also...no need to calories count. I try to eat more at dinner to comfortably sustain myself for the next day. The digestive system is meant to run all day. 200 years ago, people were lucky to eat once in 2 days rather that 5 or 6 times a day.
    George st pierre is an intermittent faster and he now swears by it as an athlete

    Good to know others are into alternative ways to improve there health, I too eat one meal a day, intermittent fasting is the original human diet and is both easy cheap and convenient. With the internet, you can easily learn 100% more in a day than the average doctor was taught or knows about diet, amazing results can be had when you ignore current dietary guides and the medical communities opinions on diet, food pyramids, and eating schedules. It's all been tainted by big business and big pharma, and idiotic advice.

    People got fat after guidlines were established. Its pretty easy to look healthy if you eat multiple meals and have an active excercise regiment but there are all kinds of associated digestive issues including collitis and gall bladder issues that people suffer from.

    Imagine how much greater he would have been if he did.

    I don't mean running players through the boards.

    Creating space for yourself.

    Probably less since he’ll be out of his prime years window.

    He either hates the coach or is having personal issues. No excuse for less than that type of effort after getting paid or actually without getting paid.

    Mathews has 12 goals in 17 games, which is a pace of 55 goals and people are asking what's wrong with him? The answer is nothing.

    Love the comment not debatable. Of course it is. Leafs will lose every game 7 to the Bruins because they are bigger, badder and want it more. Fo watch the last 10 minutes of game 7 from 2013. Nothing has changed. Leafs choked in games 6 and 7 last season because they were scared of the moment. In those moments, tough, veteran teams like the Bruins just take over against young, soft teams like the Leafs.

    Actually 13 goals, so a 62-63 goal pace

    12 goals in 17 games is impressive, but we all know he's capable of so much more.

    He is inconsistent, but the last two games he has really passed the eye test. Generating a ton of chances in those games, it seems.

    I always find it odd how Matthews is on pace to lead the team in goals and potentially points, and there's all this negativity around here concerning him... And yet, Tavares has done much of anything this season, but not even a whisper about him.

    I don't think I'll ever understand the love that Tavares gets.

    We're stuck with him for longer and he has an NMC, that's going to be a long 6 years if people turn on him already.

    You must’ve missed the post game thread the other night where I was bashing him for doing absolutely nothing. He looks like a ghost.

    For crying out loud... can you do the lacrosse-style goal already?

    I know, it’s embarrassing that at this point he doesn’t have one. Let’s go!

    MATTHEWS JOINS RARE TORONTO COMPANY AS BABCOCK EARNS 700TH WIN
    Maple Leafs forward Auston Matthews tallied his 13th goal of the season (13-6—19 in 17 GP), including a League-leading 12 which have been scored on home ice (12-5—17 in 11 GP). He became the fifth different player in franchise history to score 12 or more goals through the team’s first 11 home games in a season and just the second in the NHL’s modern era (since 1943-44).

    Thats not bad but we paid for about 110pts and 50+ goals. If Matthews hits that and has a good PO I am ok with it. I am also ok with 96pts if he plays a 200ft game. I mean I say that but the money should be less regardless considering how lazy he has looked this season.

    In addition to the other responses I would like to add, that for me anyways, it also comes down to potential. Matthews has the talent to be one of the most dominant players in the league, not just someone who puts the puck in the back of the net, but someone who takes games over in all facets of it. We saw a little bit of that last night where he simply took over. He can be a lot more than a guy you don't notice all night who then pops in a goal, and frankly the Leafs need him to be.

    With all due respect to Tavares he doesn't that same ability and I don't expect him to. Talking the elite of the elite in the NHL where Matthews can be.

    Tavares has been God awful though...

    I really think that a lot of it is just that people made up their minds that Tavares is a hometown kid that chose to come here to play and Matthews is a spoiled American that got as much as he could and will jet as soon as his contract is done.
