He will put on 10-15 lbs of pure muscle and then Thor will kill

If William Nylander is Thor, then Matthews is Mjölnir.

Isn't Matthews Captain America? Who says all the right things, does all the little things without being flashy, but gets the job done?

Marner is Spider-Man.

Perfect!

I haven't looked into this too closely on the stats side, but I've often wondered why teams don't just try to give the goalie a clean look if the blocking player is pretty far from the shooter.

I'm pretty happy Nylander did not block it (just like I was horrified that time Marner blocked one in Winnipeg that served up the puck on a platter).

From the replays I've seen if he hadn't lifted his legs he wouldn't have blocked it either because the puck was already past him when he did it.

Because a clean shot on goal is still a scoring chance, particularly if you look at the traffic in front of Andersen. It isn't realistic for the forward to check the goalie's visibility before deciding whether or not to block a shot up high.

I don't think Nylander would have blocked it regardless if both feet were on the ice, but I don't think any player should be immune from the responsibility.

What's been so great with MaNyMa is that they're always trying to make something out of nothing. And with those moves, they usually do.

Tough to comment on things like defensive assignments or faceoff wins but I definitely don't see any offensive reason through these first 8 games as to why Nylander can't be a C going forward. He's great with the puck on his stick, brilliant at looking to set up scoring opportunities, confident in his own shot, seems pretty resilient against defenders...he's reminded me a little bit of Nicklas Backstrom.
