    A little worried about Matthews injuries the past few years....who would you rather have?

    If I'm Leaf, I take the trade. McKinnon and cap space (for another player) would be great for three full years, especially if Matthews might be leaving in summer of 2023.

    1) Why on earth would Matthews leave?

    2) Who looks as far ahead as 2023 in fantasy hockey? Couple of years tops, since who knows if the league will even still exist by then.

    Matthews got hurt the other day and is out for a minimum of 4 weeks. This is MacKinnon easily if you plan on contending this year. Looking a few years ahead, they are both among the very best, though MacKinnon has the advantage in shots and a slight advantage in hits.

    Only looking at this from a strictly fantasy puprose obviously. I love Matthews but his injuries have been turning me off of him a little bit. Mackinnon continues to light it up as well, just wondering if he is the safer play long-term....although I don't think you can go wrong with either.

    Any other thoughts?

    It's close. I would take Matthews without the injury concerns, but with his 2nd shoulder injury now and knowing how those can impact players long-term I would probably go with Mackinnon.

    I'd agree that for most limited keeper leagues (dynasty leagues an exception) you should look two years down the road tops. But I have absolutely no concern about the NHL evening existing until my old age! Do you know something I don't? Genuinely curious.

    The fantasy league, not the actual NHL. Thought that would have been obvious ;)
