It's a shame that team Canada has to be assembled with b-level talent, with this generation of CHLers who are able to make the jump to the NHL earlier than ever before.

the tournament is never true best on best. this year it was just far worse than ever before. I'm not sure if youre making excuses for Canada but it was no different for the USA. Or Finland. or Sweden.

I've been to 7 world junior games this year, 4 team canada games. there are no standout dmen on the team this year. none that project into first pairing dmen. not one. Chabot is the best of the bunch and he's not THAT great.

Highest scoring D man (goals and points) in tournament, the undisputed best player on Team Canada and clearly the teams leader, also named tournament (first ever D man ) MVP.............. but, "he's not that great".

Auston Matthews keeping pace with Alex Ovechkin

If special-teams scoring is set aside, Matthews is on pace for a stronger season than Ovechkin and the finest rookie season since Selanne.

Sure it counts... but coming out of the Lockout there were many more opportunities.

Like the article mentions

Ovechkin had the advantage of more time on the power play; at 6:43 minutes per game, he scored 21 of his 52 goals. That target is out of reach for Matthews, who averages 2:48 per game on the power play.

He doesn't really need all this junky time adjust points stuff when his actual numbers say enough already though. 17th in points ahead of guys like Ovechkin, Giroux, Tavares, Backstrom, Getzlaf, Perry. This is with Toronto having played less games than most teams too so he has a shot at passing guys like Pavelski and Benn too.

The junky time adjusted stuff fixes exactly what you mention...uneven schedules and different TOI allocation

putting everyone on the same playing field makes sense imo

Points don't scale perfectly with extra ice time in real life.

Sorry but you guys are starting to get out there in the twilight zone again. Everybody is keen to list the players Matthews is ranking ahead of but nobody is too keen on the idea of noting that he trails Laine in goals scored and points.

Everybody, just wants for Laine to go away. But I expect that they will be compared head to head over the balance of the season and perhaps for their entire careers.
