Which one is a better pure shooter?
Matthews, unless it's a one timer
both are amazing though and as a fan of hockey I wanna see them battle for the richard every year
Laine. Best pure shooter since Ovechkin, imo.
Matthews has a case for being the better goal scorer, but he's not close as a pure shooter. Laine has a case for one of the best shooters ever
Comparable wristers, but Laine has a better slap shot
Similar calibre elite goal scorers but as pure shooters I give the edge to Laine. Their wristers can be compared /debated but slap/snap/one timer it's no contest imo
Matthews scores so much not based on his pure shot, but other factors. His hands in tight are amazing and nobody can contain him around the net. From a distance their shots aren't very comparable, nobody but Ovechkin can outshoot Laine from outside the circles.
Pure shooter? Laine. Matthews at this point in his career I feel is the better goal scorer of the two though due to other factors.
Goal scoring is close, I'd give the slight nod to Matthews.
Overall shot though it's Laine, it's Ovy 2.0 shot.
Both have elite wristers but Laine's shot arsenal is bigger.
What Matthews has though is the ability to move with the puck in the offensive zone and get into better shooting areas than Laine
This is the correct answer. They're both amazing and Matthews has more skill to work with his already great shot, but Laine is the better shooter in a vacuum.
No slight to Matthews but this is Laine and it's very very clear. Laine has one of the best shots I've seen in a long time. Matthews is a great goal scorer due to having great game vision and hands in tight around the net.
Matthews if it's anywhere between the goal and the top of the circle, Laine if it's beyond that.
Laine. Arguably the best shot in the game.
Matthews is among the best, but what makes him such a good goal scorer is his other abilities, not necessarily his shot.
As a pure shooter of course Laine, he is closest to Ovi.
Matthews has the best release of any player I've ever watched regularly, but Laine has the better shot arsenal.
Matthews: 81g in 148 games
Laine: 81g in 158 games
matthews by a hair
You must realize that more goals doesn’t necessarily indicate a better shot, right?
We need more Matthews polls in the polls section
Go make one then imo
Laine is the best pure shooter EVER
Laine has the better slapper and one timer. But I think Matthew's snap shot/wrister is better. It's so deceiving. Its unreal those two came into the league at the same time. Two amazing talents.
for in tight and release its Matthews, when it comes to one timers and shots where you have a lil time its Laine ANIEC. A ton of Laine's goals you know its coming and there is nothing they can do about it, with Matthews there are a ton where you are left thinking "how did he get a shot that hard off from there?
Laine is clearly the better shooter
Matthews clearly the better goalscorer
Been said a few times here an still remains true. Matthews is better at putting the puck in the net, Laine is better at shooting.
Give me Laine from Blue line to the top of the circle and Matthews from the top of the circle in. That's a deadly combo.
Separate names with a comma.
