    Matthews if he stays healthy. Guy is scoring goals without even shooting the puck

    Would be cool to see McDavid sweep the awards but I think Matthews has it in the bag.

    Matthews is the front runner, but I wouldn't put it past one of mcDavid Drai if they stay together

    Matthews, his shot is insane and Marner is getting him the pucks in the right spots.

    The exact same thing could be said about DeBrincat and Kane as well...just saying.

    No bias whatsoever when you make a list of contenders and you put the guy leading the league one handed at the bottom of the list.

    I dont think their shots are insane though. IMO the only players whos snap shots compare are Pasta, Laine, Drai.

    It did seem a little like a slap to Matthews.

    Ehlers, Toffolli and Boeser ahead of Matthew's.
    Even off the top of someone's head it shouldnt come out like that.

    DeBrincat's shot IS insane, have you not seen him play?.


    (before this season)

    Besides Alex is 5 foot 7 / 160 pound player, that makes it even more impressive, his shot.
    Compared to, lets say Auston, who is 6 foot 3 / 225 pound player, his body, physique, alone
    gives him a huuuuge advantage over Alex.

    For sure he has a elite shot, no doubt. Its wild that he can do that with such a small frame.
    My categories are: Insane, elite, good, the rest. DeBrincat falls in the elite group for me.

    There is zero chance Ehlers, Toffoli, or Boeser score more goals than Matthews. Unless Matthews misses a huge percentage of games due to injury.

    Mathews should be favored because he is leading currently.
    If Mcdavid and Draisaitl stay to together, it will be one of them for sure.

    His shot is insane, for me. But, opinions, we can always argue about those :)

    As long as he can stay away from the injury bug for the rest of the season it's Matthew's to lose. Even if McJesus and Drai play together. Matthew's shot is insane and Marner is one of the best passers around.

    Or about McDavid and Draisaitl being reunited. They've scored 8 goals combined in the last 10 periods since being reunited. We'll see if Tippett leaves them together.

    Matthews should be favored since he gets to play against Edmonton's defence whereas McDavid and Draisatl don't.

    I thought going into season Matthews was #1 favorite. I think he's better than Pastrnak, who anyways was starting season late. And age has to catch up to Ovi eventually.

    So far Matthews has done nothing but confirm he's a strong favorite this year. I still say it's him.

    People shouldn't sleep on Ovi though. Even being as far back as he is. He's done it before.

    Mathews looks to be on another level this season in terms of goal scoring - I wouldn’t be surprised if he stays in the lead all year.

    My homer vote goes to McDavid though. Would love to see him add the Richard to his trophy case.
