He didn't earn anything. He was just given spot.

I saw you mentioned play in the NHL...well thats hard for him to have done by now.

Funny how Phil Kessel, who won a cup, and let's be honest, he's a huge part of this run at the cup, isn't even there... but Auston Matthews is.





Oh, wait, the tournament is in Toronto?.... Carry on!

Who's been left off the young star team to make room for Matthews, that really deserved to be there over him?

Of course thats dumb..Kessel probably would have been added to replace someone who got injured (forget who) ..but his hand was (frank)ed up

but back to the question you didnt answer.. what would AM need to do? or is he just not deserving at all because no NHL experience?

He didn't prove anything so far. That is all.

I don't care that he's there, but to pretend he deserves to be there is just BS.

Yeah, the first link saying he deserves it, is a Toronto media.

Shocking!

Kessel definitely should be there, but he's not healthy. He just had wrist surgery

The fact he played professional hockey and was very good at doing so means nothing? Him playing in the worlds (against a lot of nhlers ) and doing well there to is meaningless as well.

He was picked by those that are running the team (who have no link to the leafs what's so ever) so that means he deserves to be there. Pretending he doesn't belong is jus as much BS(if not more so)

Listening to the "The Drive" on TSN 1200 on way home from work and they were talking about the promotion like atmosphere of the upcoming World Cup and the decision to put Toronto draft pick Auston Matthew on the team as pure marketing, based on Toronto being the venue.

Two points they seemed to make. Matthews was entirely undeserving of the nomination (other than for the fact the event is being held in Toronto). And, the Leafs are once again prematurely hyping expectations around a kid. If he is less than a star he will be run out of town.

The WCOH is purely a money making, marketing vehicle for the NHL and the NHLPA, so yes who the fu*k cares who is on whichever team ................ besides, it will also soften the blow when the NHL decides not to go to the winter Olympics.

I'd rather have them in the Olympics ...but agree on the rest...I probably will only watch if im sitting on my ass doing nothing else or Matthews is playing.

So you kinda agree that he's being used as a Marketing tool to some extent.
Don't blame you (as a leaf fan) as you've probably not seen him play too much, and would be interested to see how he fares vs NHL level competition.

Kinda makes the point being made by Pecafan Fan.

Well the point he was trying to make was that he doesn't deserve to be there.

Its important to remember he was named to the team before the Leafs actually drafted him
