CEILING: 1st Line C
FLOOR: 2nd Line C

An extremely close 2nd for me, Auston Matthews is everything you would want in a prospect. He’s big, he can skate, he can shoot, he can pass, you name it….he’s just a hell of a hockey player. My comparable for him is John Tavares though I can see Matthews being a bit better 5 on 5 and probably not as prolific on the PP as JT. The Leafs will (or they SHOULD) make Matthews the 1st overall pick in this year’s draft…it’s a no brainer…it’s what they need and the obvious choice for them. I don’t know what else I can add about this player that everyone doesn’t already know.
