I thought this would be fun to see where everyone stands on this.
SO, do you think Mathews will go the way of Sundin? A great player who drives and leads play on the ice, but ultimately doesn't win a cup for them? Or is he going to take it home eventually a la Ovechkin.
While they are entirely different players, both were stars on their respective teams and were the focus of the franchise.
So, will Matthews be the one to take home a cup? Or will he go the Mats route of a great personal career, but limited hardware in his trophy case.
Matthews is arguably much better, his team is much, much better, but is it enough? The league overall has improved drastically. The parity Bettman once hoped for is now here, and here to stay,
I personally think he is going to be like Ovechkin and have to grind it out for his cup, but he will get one in the later stages of his career. He's too good and the Leafs are much better run. No JFJ to destroy the sleep of Leaf fans these days.
What do you think?
