    McDavid vs Matthews: The Greatest Race of 2020-21

    Connor McDavid, on pace for 104 points (34 goals) in 56 games.

    Auston Matthews, on pace for 89 points (55 goals) in 56 games.

    Just must-see TV, every single night.

    Pretty insane numbers even if they get close. But of course helped by how weak that North division is. Getting to beat up on Ottawa often certainly helps their cause.

    If you ever watch McDavid & Edmonton, you'd know why I say dont trade off assets until McDavid demands a trade in the next few seasons.

    I don't think there's a single thing I wouldn't trade for him (on its own) for him.

    Like, if that deal starts with Kakko, Lafreniere, Shesterkin, whatever. I don't care. The answer is yes.

    Not necessarily. I didn't say I'm giving them all up, I said I don't think there's a single player/piece I would balk at the deal centering around.

    Let me put it this way: would I trade, say, Lafreniere, Lundkvsit, Buchnevich, and a couple firsts for him? In a heart beat.

    As long as we are talking about trading for him today then yes I agree.

    Definitely the most entertaining hockey player to watch. The amount of times he makes something happen from nothing is just insane.

    I'd watch McDavid and the "Oilers" over the current Rangers.

    False equivalency. We're not talking the current Rangers. We're talking the Rangers in 2-3 years when McD asks for a trade.

    This is an open declaration of war against Puck Head.

    mcd is an outrageous player, matthews is simply good. to me the benchmark is try to find a comparison point for each of these players - matthews you can find guys that do/have done similar things in the league before. McDavid? Nobody

    Matthews is like a 200 foot Brett Hull, that plays Center. He's closer to McDavid than some would care to admit.

    Yup. He's an absolute force. To me, the NHL basically goes (1) McDavid, (2) Matthews, (3) everyone else, mix and match as you see fit. The first two never move. They're locked in. Like Gretzky/Lemieux.

    Draisatl? lol A fantastic player for sure but great at racking up those secondary assists and power play assists. He doesn't really strike me as that impressive even strength. Matthews scoring ability is lethal and at a whole other level.

    Last year Draisaitl 29 secondary assists out of 67. McDavid 25 secondary assists out of 63. Draisaitl is a 50 goal scorer. Draisaitl also won a playoff series.
