    A blind man could do a better analysis.

    I think the really funny thing here is that you tried to point out that most of his points are secondary assists, when even a cursory glance at the statistics would show you that most of his points this season have come from goals, then primary assists, then secondary assists.

    It would have been possible for you to look less informed here, but it would have been pretty difficult.

    McDavid is the better player. Matthews is on the better team. That's it. That's not a knock on Matthews, because he's a great player in his own right, but at this stage in his career he's not as good as McDavid is.

    This thread is better when it's buried.

    Matthews is a great player. Big, fast, scoring touch and he plays a 200 foot game.

    But McDavid is on another level. The sooner Leaf fans learn to accept it the sooner they can just enjoy Matthews for the player he is.

    It's like 2 Leafs fans that think he's better than McDavid.

    The generalizations on this board are insane.

    Also hilarious how all the "neutral" fans love talking about Matthews when he's injured.

    McDavid says he watches Matthews tape in the off0season to even improve his game....even he doesn't think it's AINEC. Really stinks Auston got hurt, he'd be pushing 50 goals this season, I don't doubt it.

    Do you know how many Leafs fans there are?

    It's a very small minority that thinks this.

    But the idiots on both side have to keep arguing so don't let me stand in your way.

    Guess you know more than NHLers, Matthews is 3rd around who they would build around....but your right it's not even close. I laugh at people that think Matthews isn't even a top 10 centreman, I'll take the players and coaches word for it over the keyboard warriors lol,

    He absolutely had the chance to put up 50. No need to be like this because someone thought bumping this was a good idea.

    28 goals in 53 games pal and all while in my opinion not being full healthy for the majority of the season. Scary what a fully healthy guy could do, he also had more goals than Laine had at game 53 and he's close to 50 so.....

    Don't worry about it, the majority of them will be reclining the lazy boys while the playoffs start. Majority will turn into Jets fans because the rest will be cleaning out the lockers.

    McDavid is the best player in the game at the moment. The book is not closed on Mathews obviously, but right now: McDavid.

    That’s the problem. Too much generalization on this site. A couple of fans and people generalize an entire fan base and it’s sad and petty.

    McDavid is the most dynamic player I’ve ever see and I love Mathews but McDavid is better. Most leaf fans know this and can admit it. However I find a few oilers fans can’t admit the leafs are better team, better coached and have a better management and long term outlook. Notice how I said a few oilers fans and not every oilers fan?

    Matthews is a bull.

    The guy is thick and plays like he's been in the NHL for a while.

    McDavid has the hands and the speed but I think I'd take Matthews.

    It's pretty damn close.

    There's like 400 pages worth of thread on the Oilers board talking about how Chiarelli and McLellan should be fired.

    Lately but in the beginning of the season it wasn’t the case.

    McDavid is another level. Assuming good health I can’t see anyone challenging him as the best forward in the game during his prime.

    I am comfortable saying AM can grow into being the 2nd best forward in the league but he will not reach McDavid level. Here’s hoping Mathews ends up more on the wining side but his individual stats will not compare.

    So we'll just ignore games after #53
