Leafs Fans Go After Bruins Writer After Disrespecting Matthew's

Every so often, you come across a hockey opinion that's so off the mark that it's hard not to chuckle. That's exactly what happened recently when a Bruins podcaster shared a fan's tweet suggesting they'd pick Dylan Larkin over Auston Matthews, all because of cap savings.

Let's just play pretend for a sec and imagine that Larkin is even in the same league as Auston Matthews. Scoring goals in the NHL is no joke. If the two players were somehow equals, you'd still have to lean towards Auston Matthews simply because scoring goals is the toughest job in the game. Plus, if Larkin was anywhere near Matthews' level, his paycheck would reflect that.

The truth is, Matthews belongs with the likes of Connor McDavid and Nathan MacKinnon. These guys earn their paychecks because they can change the outcome of a game all on their own. Now, I've got no issue with Larkin, but he's just not playing in the same league as those heavyweights.

But wait, there's more. Our podcaster friend didn't stop there. He actually stuck to his wild opinion, suggesting that with the cap savings, the Leafs could've gone after players like Alexander Wennberg ($4.5M), Brandon Saad ($4.5M), Tyson Barrie ($4.5M), or Nikita Zaitsev ($4.5M). Seriously, you can't make this stuff up.
