Who’s better now?

There is not a doubt in my mind that Auston Matthews is better than Patrik Laine. None whatsoever. Don’t get me wrong, Patrik Laine is amazing and scored 2 goals off two shots that the Leafs limited him to. That’s impressive.

Then why is Auston Matthews better? I’m pretty sure you’ve read every article about this debate and I’m gonna skip that. But anyone who watched that game, or any Leafs game, will tell you how fantastic Matthews is with AND without the puck. His back checking is strong and he sets players up magically. (remember that Washington assist he got?)

They both will certainly be superstars for the rest of their careers but my dream is after Matthews is announced as the Calder winner, all the haters will finally shut up and accept it.
