    Youre missing the point.

    .13 over these sample sizes is insignificant really but even if we want to make a big deal about it, you have to look at /60 (especially on the PP) to understand why 99 points in 83 games is actually slightly worse than 100 points in 91 games. It doesn't make sense to say that if you go by /GP models but perfect sense by /60 models.

    TOI matters.

    Whats really exploded have been his goal numbers though with the extra icetime despite having to play through a couple of injuries.

    Since the coaching change:

    Goals/60 from centers in the NHL since Keefe was hired by the Leafs:

    1. Matthews: 1.99
    2. Zibanejad: 1.65
    3. Stamkos: 1.63
    4. Bergeron: 1.57
    5. Aho: 1.56

    Just in a different tier scoring goals as a center than anyone in the game.

    He's so good at scoring goals that even if you wanted to go Goals/GP (which underrates his scoring), he currently stands at .582 for his career. Thats just behind Brett Hull at 8th on the NHL list all time and he's catching him, with Gretzky next on the list.

    I think he might be a top 5 center in this league.

    Leon "centres his own line" Draisaitl potting three goals on slick feeds from McDavid. That's got to boost his ranking.

    We all must have missed the part where Brett Hull was listed as a Centre.

    Yes, we know that Draisaitl is much better than Matthews. Stop reminding us.

    Also, this was at the beginning of the season. Nobody in their right mind has Draisaitl behind Mr. Selke/60 though.

    Don’t remind us of the foolish Barzal ranking. There should be a 2 in front of that 0, not a 1.
