    He still ended out being a reasonably good player.

    Why wouldn't they spend time here, they are treated like visiting royalty. In Arizona there's Joe Bloggs and the Mexican missus. Auston entered the world in San Francisco.

    Some may take umbrage but it's still cinematic gold (best scene of a boring movie).

    I thought Matthews and his line had a heck of a game in game 2, even thought he didn't get any points.

    The TV guys said Auston's defensive skills are often overlooked.

    Matthews picked up 2 points in another thrilling 4-3 OT win.

    Matthews goal last night was amazing. Not because it was a booming slap shot or wrister from the slot or a tremendous deke of the defencemen or goalie but rather it was due to his tenacity and the ability to drive the to the net through two defencemen. The hand/eye coordination required to score that goal was unbelievable. While Kadri changed the momentum of the game with his hits the shift before, Matthews put a punctuation mark on Kadri's work by scoring that goal right after.

    Matthews lost the offensive zone faceoff that led to the OT goal. Leafs haven't been good at the faceoff dot all night so it's not just Matthews.

    Faceoff percentages were 46% Toronto/55% Washington (rounding error).

    There should be absolutely no doubt that Matthews is the cream of the crop and is a lock to win the Calder.

    Agreed! He's the real deal at both ends of the ice.

    Let's hope the Leafs don't appoint him captain and allow him to focus strictly on hockey.

    I think Auston is actually better than Toews at the moment.
