    So by that really reasoning Matthews was only the 4th player in NHL history to score 40 before he turned 20 last year...I guess that makes him generational too right? Or does it not apply because he's a Maple Leaf lol

    It was a great accomplishment by him and yes he's good. Laine is ripping it up twice before he is twenty. It's not Laine's or my fault Matthews couldn't do it!

    You do realize that without the missed games thanks to injuries that Matthews would have hit 40 again right....

    He’s not an overall Generational player, but you’d be damn sure his shot and goal scoring tools are Generational.

    His Wrist Shot(release and accuracy), his Slap Shot(accuracy and shot power), his One Timer(same as slapper), his ability to get in open space and etc... There’s a reason he’s got more goals than Matthews will ever have in a single season with 16 and a half minutes per game, Oh yeah and he’s a teenager with more goals than teenage Gretzky(in a harder era of hockey).

    Lmao thanks for the laugh...so you think Matthews who has 28 goals in 53 games, wouldn't get 13 in 28 games, enjoy whatever fantasy planet your living on. In reality, Matthews would be pushing 50 goals if healthy. Now Laine is being compared to Gretzky lol.....

    Thats the thing with hockey you just never know...most likely matthews would..
    His 28 goals and 50 points in 53 games are exactly same as laine had in his rookie season.

    At 58 games played he hit ppg untill 61 games played aswell.

    I think both would have b2b 40 goal seasons without injuries

    I think some of them are just taking the piss...both sides get exposed to these opinions about either player sadly..
    Most jets fans are cool its just a percentage of those and finns who continue the back and forward drama.

    Id reconmend simply ignoring them will be suffice :)

    Your welcome, and yes I do believe he would not get 13 in 28, he simply doesn’t have the consistency Laine has. Fantasy is a world in which all your dreams are desired, the world I’m living in(and you are as well) is one where it’s common for hockey players with sample sized game start to deflate nearing the end of the season...

    In reality Matthews is on pace for less than Laine with sample sized games, in reality Matthews ain’t pushing nothing but the elevator buttons in the hospital.

    Also if you would had listened or even paid any attention to the players performance in constrast to your all mighty Matthews you would had realized Laine has the 3rd most Goals of any teenage hockey in the history of the NHL, as he just surpassed Gretzky... No comparisons just the truth behind the statistics and performance of Laine, but you would know cause you haven’t seen or even followed Laines play.

    And Laine would be already on 50 or 60 without Bryan Little ruining half of his season based on this if logic and his pace without Little. Matthews could be pace for 40 or slump and have only for 35. We don't know what would happen.

    But it doesn't change the fact that Laine has been way better player than Matthews in 2018 and it's not even close.

    Bud. Its winnipeg. Population like 200k.

    And 190k wish they lived somewhere else.

    Lets just stop with the flood of toronto comparison threads...it shows off your insecurity complex.

    True, but it's also been Laine's hottest stretch of his career and Matthews has been out hurt. Matthews has been every other year in their careers

    Except for 15-16.. And Laine were hurt last season, they would have had identical points ;)

    Exactly. I'll give 17 for Matthews but 16 was clearly for Laine.

    It's really close and arguments can be made both ways. But this goes heavily in the Leafs favour if Nylander becomes a producing centre.

    Having Matthews & Nylander as your top 6 centres easily beats Laine and Ehlers on the wings.

    I would take the Leafs duo. Matthews is also a goal scoring beast and amazing 2 way player. Laine is still amazing though-I’m not complaining!

    I live on the corner of University and Adelaide smack in the middle of DT Toronto but nice attempt at an ignorant cheap shot

    Also insecurity complex regarding Winnipeg is funny when 98% of Raptors talk is about getting ignored by ESPN

    Matthews has been more consistent than Laine, this isn’t even a debatable thing, look at their game logs.

    All this nonsense because of a hot-streak, lol.

    I hope you realize every joke you crack about Matthews being injured makes it clearer and clearer to your fellow fans just was an embarrassing pos your acting like. And while I wouldn’t suggest doing the same thing back when Laine is next injured (and he will be), your just asking to get mega trolled.

    This is a false claim considering season 17-18.

    You know I really don't care that you think Laine is so much better then Matthews. As a fan of the Jets you're allowed to have fanboy in you and cheer for your guy. But what really disgusts me is the injury jokes, as if your happy Matthews got hurt. I remember last year when Laine was out with a concussion a lot of leaf fans to a tee were all concerned for him. Yet here you are along with others acting like total ***** bags laughing about a young kids injury.
    Don't get me wrong the majority of jet fans I have talked to a very respectful about it, it's just the few like yourself that really need to wake up.

    But projection was not allowed for Laine last year when he was injured. Matthews started fast and then his numbers started to normalize. He had 4 goals in his last 10 games, so one can't unequivocally proclaim he would have the same amount of goals as Laine has now. Or he would be pushing 50 goals. Being Healthy or not healthy is reality, not fantasy. Thus real stats are used. Not what if stats.
