Can have all the talent in the world but if you don't have that heart, determination, will to do whatever to win then skill doesn't mean s**t. That's what guys like McDavid and Mackinnon have and for every shift for the most part. Matthews in my opinion doesn't especially when it matters most.

Yea of course. The all important, immeasurable "heart".

You don't think that is important?

I for one think it's very important that players have hearts. The heart is crucial for transporting oxygen around the blood stream which is not just important for Athletes but for all human life. Until the NHL develops players with Cyborg hearts, which I'd imagine will be 2028 at the earliest, I believe that the Maple Leafs policy should be only signing players with all of their vital organs in reasonable working order.

Nothing says it's the doldrums of summer like posters engaging with Azzuri or Nik dialing his sarcasm meter to vaporize 😀

We don't even know that the delay is coming from Matthews' camp. There may be a contract he's fine with but the Leafs want to negotiate it down which is a valid thing for them to want to do. Or he's taking some time deciding if he wants to go short term or long term.

Either way it's probably not something to be concerned about.

I get it.  It's just selfish impatience on my part
