    She's entitled to her opinion and she's allowed to voice it and is in a position where it's amplified.

    It's just a shame she's either stupid as shit or is a butt-hurt troll.

    She likely realizes that some of the gals recently hired by SN are better analysts than she is, and they've only been on the job for a few weeks, and she is fighting to stay relevant and in the picture on her own network. What better way than to insult the best player in the world, that coincidentally happens to be on the team that just humiliated your husband's team, and wait for the reaction.

    Its specious reaction, and timing, of seeing the 7-1 spanking of her beloved Flames, and still angry about that, and seeing the single best performance by any player yet this season, she just has to throw up whatever vomit she has proclaiming the chosen one is not McDavid. I mean Mr. Hockey CANNOT play for Edmonton to a Calgary fan.

    Back in the day Wayne was never the best player in the league either in specious flamer opinion. It was always somebody else.

    Its pure jealousy and refusal to admit Edmonton has greatest players.

    To everyone, McDavid is better. Literally everyone. And he’s more than one tier better, too.
    Cassie is just a Flames homer who is trolling. She sees the hate she gets on Twitter from fans and this is her response. A f***in troll job.

    Matthews isn’t even the best player on the Leafs, Marner is and has been since their rookie seasons.

    Matthews is complete that's all there is. Done. Downhill from here.
    McDavid is better and not complete. More to go can't wait.

    Lol McDavid hasn’t even gone on a crazy hot streak by his standards.

    He’s just kind of clipping along, several games he easily could have more points.

    He’s the kind of guy that could just go off for an obscene amount in several consecutive games at any moment. Like a sustained stretch of games averaging 3+ PPG when he’s on a heater.

    He’s a transcendent hockey talent, he’s playing the best hockey of his career and better yet again this year. Stronger defensively and better in the faceoff circle so far this year (he’s hovered around 50 percent for much of the year, was above 50 percent earlier in the season and it’s an area he reportedly worked a lot on this offseason).

    She is just so bad at this job. If they have to have a woman, put in some effort and find someone actually good. She us just another Hrudey up there with lame takes.

    And honestly, what does this make Marner? The guy elevating matthews while playing more ice time and even being on the first PK unit? He must be beyond generational as a complete player.

    Hot take. Cammi Granato was a more complete player than Cassie. A HHOFer as well.

    Can we get our own ex-Team Canada homer too? What's Shannon Szabados up to nowadays? She was a hell of a goalie

    Campbell's position is simly ridiculous. BUt I was struck by the following:

    It is somewhat shocking to see this stated so explicitly from a guy like Staples who has a lot of interaction with people who would argue the opposite. Good on him.

    Honestly, I don't mind hearing this sort of thing. It fires up McDavid. Similar stuff use to get said about Gretzky as well and the results were often not pretty for the people saying it. He'd go on some insane tear and just end the discussion completely. McDavid has that in him as well. On the surface he is a humble guy but you know he wants to be the best and to let what he does on the ice make the point for him.

    I even think this might fire up Leon.

    Good point! Maybe she will get into Toronto faster and be the Leafs color commentary (if you call that color commentary, ugh). Would save all of us in Alberta having to listen to her :laugh:

    McDavid is his own cheerleader. Nearly every time he's on the ice if you're in the building, or his countless spectacular highlights if you're watching a screen.

    In the rink, the only comparable for my eyes is Bure. Even opposing fans would nearly cheer, sit on the edge of their seat, and completely respect the players skills. I have seen this myself watching EDM v.s LAK at Staples. Many Kings fans around me were buzzing about McDavid. We have also seen video evidence of opposing fans cheering a McDavid goal.

    Also, outside of Canada and inner hockey circles Matthews is unknown. McDavid is becoming known.
    Here in Europe, specifically Germany it is: Ovechkin, Draisaitl, Crosby, McDavid... I dunno where AM is on the list but it's way behind.

    AM "uncanny release" and "leading the league in goals in the first half" or w/e is not nearly enough to compare to even 1 McDavid highlight.

    The sad thing is they are both great players, with different styles, who know each other, and don't deserve these trash comparisons.

    Toronto fans: "Matthews is the best player in the league"

    Oiler fans: "Matthews would be the third best player on our team"

    Something doesn't add up...

    Staples isn’t nearly as dumb as some people suggest. His ‘errors’ work is a bit suspect, but even on his dumbest day he has more interesting stuff to say than CC.

    Speaking of Hrudey, I was watching a bit of the first period of Flames/Leafs last night and the homer says that even though Flames lost 7-1 on Saturday, they played well. LOL seriously man it's just getting ridiculous now!

    Yeah, exactly. Matthews is the 2nd best player on his team, and would be the 3rd best player on the Oilers. I like him a lot, he likely has the best release in the world right now, and will surely score 50+ goals a few times in his career. He'll end up in the hall of fame, no question about it. But he isn't the best player in the league right now. He might win a ross or hart or lindsay in the future, that wouldn't surprise me. But again, he isn't the best player in the world right now - maybe 5-8th, somewhere in there? McDavid, Drai, Marner, MacKinnon, and Kucherov are all clearly ahead IMO, and guys like Pasta, Scheifele, and Huberdeau are all in that same tier s Matthews.
