    More or less what I’d have.

    Glad to see Barzal getting respect.

    In what world is Matthews ahead of MacKinnon? After his "slow" start, MacKinnon is 1 point back with 1 game less played than Matthews.

    Matthews two way game? Mackinnon focuses on being more of a dynamic offensive player that a all around two way center?

    You clearly don't watch Colorado games of you think MacKinnon doesn't play a two way game. You honestly think a guy that looks up to Crosby and trains with him every year is only an offensive player?

    OMG. The players are so east coast biased with Matthews. Unbelievable.

    Because goals are the only thing that matters? Man that Marner guy must be a terrible player.

    Id love to know who voted for Pettersson over Schiefele in the honorable mentions. Pettersson has never had a point per game season and Scheifele has been a ppg player for the last 4 seasons. He may have the potential to be a better player in the future but he is not a better player right now.

    They are on the same level offensively.

    Goals gotta count for more than assists if they are anywhere near the same in points. Matthews is on pace to hit ~40+ goals in shortened season...that's higher than MacKinnon's career high in full seasons.

    What a joke. Hyman is better than Point at C. He just hasn't played it yet.

    Stop talking out of your ass, you clearly don't watch any MacKinnon outside of highlights. He's a tier above Matthews.

    Tbh I still haven't seen a convincing argument for Matthews over Crosby yet. I don't think it's "wrong", but I just don't think Matthews has had that continuous level of being better than Crosby to warrant being rated higher than Crosby. I'd probably call it "premature" more than "wrong".

    I don't think Matthews has shown a sustained level above Crosby that would make me rate him over Crosby like MacKinnon and Draisaitl have.

    Funny how Leafs fans don't seem to think that when conparing Marner and Rantanen :laugh:.

    Isn't it weird how Marner and MacKinnon seems to get all the assists and Matthews and Rantanen gets all the goal. Geez I wonder if there's a reason for that?

    Barkov should be #3 behind MacKinnon and McDavid.

    I'd love to hear the argument for Barkov over Draisaitl, Crosby or Matthews.

    A guy with 1 PPG season (prior to this year) without even being a Selke finalist isn't the #3 center in hockey.

    Imagine believing Matthews is a stud defensively.
