    welcome to sample size, AM has never produced at this rate but a handful of games this season. He has simply had a hot start, and your graph and logic simply ignores that.

    I have not ignored that, nor his unsustainable high Shooting%. Don't worry. If anything I've been "brake-man" in this thread, still considering Auston's performances incredible. Guy just break his shoulder, takes a break, and comes back continuing his interrupted business. Just like that. Gotta show some respect. Those goals are actually scored, it is not conjectural. It's evident that over GPG pace has been actually possible for injured Auston this season. No way he ride over whole season with this kind production, but it doesn't diminish the value of already happened things.

    Wow, Matthews' girlfriend looks way older than him.

    Well expect another one now that he gets to play Detroit. Matthews has always been hot against Detroit and Detroit is extra bad this season.

    Lol Matthews wouldn’t even look at that posters girlfriend, or any woman he has ever been romantically involved with...... and can buy his whole family tree...

    Not really sure what your point is here. I’m from Halifax buddy, MacKinnon has been a favorite player of mine for a long time. Because they are having great seasons means Matthews is not? How does this work?

    Matthews is having a wicked season so far and has been an elite goal scorer since he came into the league, crazy people can’t admit that and just try and downplay him no matter what.

    I can deal with all the Leafs threads because I think it would be cooler than cool to see the Leafs win and all the festivities, but I draw the line at AM.

    Are there more than one Mathews who could win the Rocket? Another Auston? No. Just refer to him by one of those.

    AM puts me to sleep.

    Missed half the season so far but is still 2 goals from being in the top 10 goal leaders.

    Because he’s been on the ice at Even Strength for 3 goals for more than goals allowed.

    Please don't tell me you actually took my post seriously. If so this board has gone even more downhill than I thought.

    You expect him to keep shooting at 30 percent all year?

    But 18 percent for Laine is not sustainable?

    Your reply doesn’t take into consideration that a young player will improve which he has. He is also getting more ice time than last year

    Those two factors alone make a big difference in his previous seasons.

    Because there's nothing fun about a player who's overly talked about and gets credit for things he never accomplished

    When Matthews is ranked top 5 centre going into his 2nd season... of course people from other fan bases aren't gonna be too ecstatic. The media and Toronto fans have been disrespecting other top players who have actually scored over 69 points or finished top 10 in scoring

    It's the second hardest thing to do. The hardest being resisting to start a Matthews thread every minute.

    It's his mom guys, holy cow.

    They've showed her countless times on TV. Countless. Literally, I've lost count. Like... they've shown her so many times on TV I can't even fathom as guess as to how many. It's an absurd number. Really difficult to gauge how many times. A lot is an understatement.
