He was just plain bad the first 2 periods. Many people choose analyze players as they play in a GDT. The same people praised him in the 3rd. It's not bashing a guy to say he's playing bad when he's playing bad.

These threads.

Just stop arguing and enjoy watching these guys tear up the league.

Its not like some of their fanbase was being charitable towards Matthews, Marner or Nylander. Sheer numbers dictate there are going to be more extreme posters on the Leafs side though.

Omg... why does this thread exist. Bloody hell.

What, every cool goal he scores someone's gonna say "look hockey world! Our Eichel is good!"

I hate these threads. Just as much as I hate the:

"cool save by price" threads

"Sick goal by McDavid" threads

"What a goal by Matthews/Leafs are cup bound" threads


Some Sabres fans should stop embarrassing the other Sabre fans on this mainboard. Good grief.

Definitely, but the volume of non-stop shots at Eichel recently has been pretty ridiculous. The kid is a great player.

Funny how when I was saying this same stuff before the 2015 draft nobody brought up the Leafs.

Matthews has always been a better prospect than Eichel, and I've always said that.

Deal with it.

Hmm, I seem to remember them matching up the entire night 7 days ago.

Matthews won 9/13 faceoffs from him, and had a 61 % 5v5 CF against him, as well as a goal, while Eichel was held pointless.. Yeah, Eichel's better though.

We can only hope. Shocking it turns into a Matthews vs Eichel thread.

Well as long as you've always said that, pack it in boys, we're done here. Semantics has spoken.

I'd rather have a thread on the Sabres winning 3 OTs in a row and a thread getting bumped every time Eichel puts the heat on a team. Imagine if Pens fans did that every time with Malkin and Crosby.....just be happy with the players you got.

Guy Carbonneau was pretty great against Wayne Gretzky too. Who was better. I'm guessing it must be Carbonneau given how player vs. player matchups are the be all/end all.

You're overrating him by calling him elite.

Except the thread only exist because of Leaf fans relentlessly bagging on Eichel in an effort to pump up their players. If not for the behaviour, this wouldn't be a thread.

Just watched the OT goal now. My god I want that guy on my club. Great wheels and then the blistering snap. That was a 30goal+ type scorer's goal. If he hadn't gotten hurt you probably are looking at him having something in the high 40s. I could tell you this, he will score 40 a couple times. The guy's shot is too good.

Eichel is one of the few young players that can approach McDavid territory.

don't think a player with Eichel's prospect fanfare could be underrated in his draft +2, too much spotlight and expectation. He's a very very good offensive player who makes highlight plays and certainly has elite upside, don't worry so much about the broad stroke judgments people make about his career while he's still 20, if he's an elite player that will come out in the wash

He's a good young player still working on putting all of his tools together, no need for this thread. Just let Eichel be Eichel.

His pace is 38 so not far off. I can def see consistent 40/40 flirtation year by year if he keeps his shot totals up like he has been.
