Quote from: Significantly Insignificant on February 10, 2023, 07:45:00 AMI can see a scenario where if McDavid is chasing 2000 points at the end of the career, that is the main storyline that the NHL wants to run with when it comes to a Matthews-McDavid comparison, but if he isn't close, and Matthews is poised to eclipse 900 goals, I think that Matthews becomes the bigger headline.

What's even better is when Matthew's 900th goal as a Leaf is assisted by McDavid's 2000th career point with the Leafs on a late power play.
I Saw Jay McClement Score.

In overtime against the Calgary Flames.  Gonna be awesome.

In the same season where the Leafs are chasing their 6th straight Stanley Cup?

Matthews scored 60 goals last year in 73 games, and McDavid scored 60 in 72 games this year.  I read somewhere that McDavid looked at how Matthews and Pastrnak scored most of their goals and tried to work it into his repertoire.
