    Boy, I love both (I'm a Leafs fan). Before Matthews was drafted by the Leafs, guess who my favourite player was? You guessed it, Bergeron. The man does so many things well, and yet gets undervalued year in and year out.

    He also shut down Matthews line during the playoffs. Though to be fair to Matthews, he was snake-bitten. His entire line was.

    The funny thing is, Matthews is a point per game against Boston. He's just impossible to stop when he gets going. And seeing that he's already taken a tremendous step forward this season, I'm not sure there's any real justification to take Bergeron other than for his defensive skills -- and Matthews is climbing up that ladder quickly too.

    Love me some Bergeron, but I think this goes to Matthews. Matthews now, and definitely in the future.

    Why are you asking 2 questions in the OP?

    You're asking two questions in your post for one poll.

    I like both players a lot but if I had to pick one now for going forward it would be Matthews.

    Matthews was playing hurt that series. They are as close as they'll ever be right now but going forward I don't think there's any doubt it's Matthews.

    I mean for the future the answer is obvious. Having now and future as different questions in the OP confuses the poll results and makes this poll pointless.

    In the future? One is 12 years younger than the other.

    You are asking two questions, but dont have all the poll options to answer.

    Very few wont choose Matthews in the future (ridiculous question anyway because of age difference). So the only interesting question is the first.

    Anyway: Right now Bergeron, future Matthews.

    For the next two seasons I'll take bergeron, the amount of goals/points he prevents will make up the scoring difference. After 2 years gimme AM.

    I’d probably take Bergeron for the games that actually matter.

    Bergeron was also playing hurt. Still did his job.

    Yeah well good for him, but he's hardly had very impressive playoff numbers for much of his career. He is a better playoff player than 19 and 20 year old Matthews, but go figure.

    Did you know there is more to hockey than points?! Baffling, yes, but it's true.

    Hockey is about more than just points.
    Bergeron is elite defensively. Matthews is not. I’d give the edge to Matthews offensively but that doesn’t overcome the huge gap defensively.
    For the next few years I’d go Bergeron.

    You act like Matthews is not good defensively, and I just said that Bergeron has been the better playoff player despite not putting up great numbers, so not sure exactly where you gathered that I'm not aware of his defensive impact. You're out of your mind if you don't think Matthews will end up a better playoff player, that's all I can say.

    There is a simple way to put this, if Seattle had the opportunity to select ANY player from Toronto vs Boston right now, but could only take 1 Centre who would their GM take? the nearly 34 year old centre or the 21 year old 6'3" 220 lbs franchise centre?

    99.9% Seattle is taking Matthews, and so would all of you if you were a GM in that position and you know it.

    End of discussion.

    End of discussion about the topic? Because that scenario has no relation to the thread

    Its just another way to look at it, how doesn't it have any relation to the thread? can you not read and comprehend? the thread is about which player will be better in the next few seasons, a GM is going to want to pick the better player. Potato potato. Stop trying to over complicate things.

    Bergeron is so uniquely awesome that this is one comparison to Matthews that I don't actually find insulting at all.

    I'd still take Matthews, but Bergy's one of only a couple that might be able to nullify Matthews one on one.
