    Laine is #8 in best wingers and Wheeler is #11. We're looking good with Elhers pushing and Connor coming in.

    That list is pretty bad. Matthews being #4 despite not PKing at all isn't the only thing wrong with it. I guess they got the top 3 right.

    My process
    1. Opens list
    2. Scan for Schiefele
    3. That's right. Respect the Schief
    4. What's this other player doing so far down?
    5. I wonder if they put Matthews on -
    6. Face palm.
    7. Read the rest of the list
    8. Double face palm.

    By the end of the season Scheifele will be at 3 and Laine will be at 1. Ehlers... probably 5.

    NHL.com had pretty odd writers though, tend to bandwagon a lot.

    This list is a joke , i still would have Sidney Crosby #1 and Matthews at 4 after one season is even more of a joke . I guess if Scheifele played for Toronto he would be #3 on this list .

    Laine and Ehlers will have converted to center by the end of the season? Huh

    Seriously though: the only player on the list I had an issue with was Matthews, and not because he doesn't belong, but more his positioning in the list.

    Barkov is way to low and Matthews is way too high.
    I'm not sure Matthews is better than Eichel.

    Meh, the media is all about driving traffic to their website. Where's the biggest hockey market in North America? Frankly I'm surprised Matthews was only #4. We don't report news anymore, we drive hits. Reality has nothing to do with anything.

    You heard it hear first

    Matthews is just as good as Malkin
    Slotted right behind him

    I think scheifele at 10 is modest and agree with it

    Crosby not at #1 is a bigger mistake then Matthews at 3.

    Scheif at 10 sounds about right.

    But McDavid is #1 according to the list?

    I seriously start to wonder if most people posting in this thread actually red it :amazed:

    Would be quite ironic to bash the author randomly about whatever and showing that you didn't actually even care to read the article... But hey, I guess that's "human" or so.

    And no I'm not trying to be a smart ass or whatever but I don't like blind critic for a journalist when people didn't even seem to have red what their criticizing.

    Read his post again. There's a "not" in there. You got him for Matthews at 4 when he said 3 though, if you want that one.

    Ummmmmmmmmm what?

    I think Crosby should be #1, and it shouldn't even be close.

    The point is everyone is freaking out about Matthews, when IMO it's not even the biggest mistake on the list.

    Ok, I'm curious. If you had the Wpg jets roster minus Schiefele, and you can choose a centre to fill his spot FOR ONE YEAR ONLY, who would you choose? Rank your list 1-10.

    Crosby
    McDavid
    Malkin

    That is about it for me. A prime Getzlaff but not an aging one. Maybe Kopitar but I think Schiefele is a better point producer

    1. Crosby - knows how to win

    large gap

    2. Stamkos - just like his game
    3. Backstrom - if he can setup Ovi, he can setup Laine

    Can't really think of any more. I would avoid most younger players because if it one year only, it's gotta be a run!

    Matthews gets his ranking for what he did vs rookies and how valueable he is to the LEAFS. how can Scheifele compete with that?

    Kopitar is the worst. 12 goals 52 points. If this is a list of who is the best at the position RIGHT NOW he's not 13th. He needs to prove himself again.

    Scheifele put up 82 points in less games in a team that didn't make it to the playoffs
    Even tho he put up more points than matthews and played on a "worse" team, He loses points for not "carrying" the team to the playoffs


    It's really bad logic, But they gotta sell those wolf tickets to the sheep


    Stamkos is always injured. No thanks. He's at the bottom of my list

    From now on, you may, or maybe even should use this quote in any thread about lists in which Matthews is eligible.

    Half his rating is him being a Leaf, the other half is him being damn good at hockey. That's all there is to it.

    Don't think so
    Because then that means you're wrong about 9 other players ranking by put Matthews ahead of them

    But yes, Crosby not a head of McDavid is the first mistake
