    For sure, 100% but Babs is sheltering him somewhat with having Hyman do a lot of the dirty work for him yet you constantly see AM in the corners doing the same so with two highly skilled wingers instead of one and some nights none, you will see AM assists go up in the future. Marner is great but has had the privilege of playing with JVR and Bozak who combined are better linemates than Hyman and a Brown/Nylander combo.

    Sky is the limit for #34 and is a true superstar in the making.

    For the time being JVR and Bozak are better linemates but the others have huge upsides. Babs wants the rookies to play together so they can understand their respectives games going forward - it's all about the future. AM has extraordinary balance and timing, very few would have scored that second goal against the Canes. Connor Brown reminds me of Rocky Saginuk heart wise and his skill set is better.

    I don't expect them to make the playoffs, they need a deeper defense for that. They're going to have to concentrate on goalies and D-men next draft - and Roman Josi is an UFA.

    The backup goalie looks pretty good. Stopped all 37 shots.

    They're only as good as the team in front of them.

    The fact that young Auston is so grounded is a tribute to his family. His mom and sister stayed with him in Switzerland last year. I doubt we will ever hear of Auston being arrested for getting involved in a bar fight.

    Leafs core Matthews, Marner, Nylander, Reilly, Anderson. Perhaps even Gardiner. That's a very good core. And young. 3 rookies in fact. Zaitsev a rookie also looks good.

    Are you saying that you are part of the Leafs' good young core?

    We can be glad that the Boston vs Islander game wasn't a 3 pt game.

    Breaking any scoring benchmark from 1980's is a huge accomplishment!

    Right now, I'd say it is a bit of a wash between the two.

    Admittedly there was much more goal scoring in Wendel's day, however he did it in 66 games (broken foot--missed one month) and Matthews took 73 (I think).

    I read somewhere where someone adjusted the scoring for the era's and Matthews would be equaled to 52 goals in the 80's.

    Matthews more focused on making playoffs then personal achievements.
