    Can we quantify this statement? Is there a factual answer to this? There have been a ton of comparisons b/w the 2, almost making it seem like there is some sort of discussion between the 2. I just want to know how big/wide the gap actually is between the 2 because there's a ton of people here who seem to think otherwise. Can it be represented by comparisons between other players in the past or present?

    Is the gap exaggerated?

    There is no agenda here, just out of pure curiosity.

    If this doesn't scream insecurity, I don't know what does.

    I find this laughable especially considering McDavid has even stated that he watches Matthews and tries to hone some of the skills he sees. This will be my last post in this thread before it turns into a **** show

    Probably similar to a few years ago - Crosby vs Tavares

    Mcdavid is the best player in the league with Crosby a close second.

    Matthews is a debatable top 10

    Slightly smaller than the gap between McDavid and Pastrnak.

    About the same as the basement bound Oilers and the cup contending Leafs.

    McDavid has won the scoring title every year he has been healthy

    They aren’t even close, i don’t understand why he’s compared to matthews though. Do people think he’s the second best player in the league ?

    So did Mario. What's your point?

    Edit: Nvm, I have a feeling this joke is gonna go over way too many heads, and just cause a fuss.

    I'm not saying that either, the gap just isn't as massive as some love to make it
