    Who's gonna be better next season, Eichel or Matthews?

    My moneys on Eichel for a 90 point season.

    I think Matthews will have a better year. He had a pretty good rookie year to build off of, and his team is on the rise (increasing his production).

    Not sure anyone will score 90 points other than McDavid.

    Matthews. He is a little better offensively and much more complete. He's also on a better team and has a better coach

    I choose Meichel. Although Eathhews could really have a big year.

    We should compare Eichel to Matthews more often.

    These threads never go well but I say Jeichel now and future. 85-90 points is my guess this year if he plays 82 games

    Matthews, he has a superior supporting cast around him, Eichel's isn't bad but it falls off fast he has ROR Okposo and Kane

    Matthews has Nylander Marleau, Marner, JVR, Kadri, Bozak Brown, all except Brown scored 50+ points and Brown got 20 goals on the 3rd line.

    Eichel doesn't have 5 60+ point guys on his team, 6 50+ point guys, he doesn't have a 3rd line C that scored 30 goals and 60 points, or if you consider Bozak the 3rd line C 18 goals and 55 points.

    Eichel doesn't have a 3rd line RW that got 20 goals as a rookie

    Matthews will have a better season because Toronto has more offensive options which means a teams focus has to be ore spread out you can't just focus on Matthews and win the game.

    Buffalo has much less depth, sure they can load up a good line a run Kane Eichel and Okposo but if they do that they become a 1 line team.

    Even if Toronto did load up their top line and went with Nylander Matthews Marner they still have JVR Bozak Marleau and Komarov Kadri Brown to back them up.

    If Toonto went JVR Matthews Nylander they'd still have Marleau Bozak Marner, Komarov Kadri Brown to back them up.

    Buffalo doesn't have that depth they are much easier to shut down.

    Toronto is a 3 line team

    Buffalo is 1 line and part of a 2nd line

    Matthews will have the better season as long as he's healthy

    Connor Brown is a better player than Sam Reinhart. Heard it here first.

    Point wise? Eichel maybe.

    But Matthews will always be the better player. He's a complete package. He's way better defensively and it's not even close.

    Eichel has to prove he's better, that's hard to do when Matthews has almost as many goals in 1 season as Eichel has in 2
