The media could not be played.   :-\  I'm guessing this is one of those super-secret, self-destructing Canadian links?

Which media are you looking for?

The Matthews .gif from that tweet.

I can't find a streamable mirror for it (because it's not a scoring play). It's a gif of Matthews taking a reverse pass at the blueline against Tampa, taking it into the zone with speed and stickhandling it through Stralman up high, Hedman down low, and getting a good shot in close on Bishop that he just gets a piece of.

Is it wrong that I read that in Bob Cole's voice?

I'm not sure any play-by-play guy could speak fast enough to describe those moves in real time. Bob's call would be reduced to something like "Auuuusssston Matheeeeewwwwwwwwwws [rising tone] ..... oh baby!!!"

Any other player in the NHL has 10pts in 9 games and is one of the top scorers in the league and they are talking about erecting statues and these pricks pull this?

I swear to god, I know they need to fill time, but have some sort of quality control.

The kid is a just drafted 19y/o who is doing amazing, give him some space.

EDIT: As awesome as Toronto can be, especially if you're doing well, when people talk about the bad side of playing in Toronto? This stuff is part of it, especially if you're a local guy and all your friends and family are listening to a lot of the coverage.

Matthews vs. McDavid is attracting the like of Gretzky and Bobby Orr to the ACC.

Only in Toronto can a player be both hyped up to all-time great superstardom and talked down upon as an average player at the same time.

That's not what they said at all.  They were just speculating as to whether Matthews has hit a lull in energy after the initial season starting adrenaline he would have had.  He's played a lot of hockey and been the focus of the hockey world since the spring.  Swiss league into world championships into world cup into season.  It's normal to have ups and downs over any stretch of time.
