With the way Matthews and Laine each finished the season, can't see how it isn't Matthews.

amazing that two guys who had over 60 point rookie seasons aren't even going to be nominated, let alone have a chance at winning.

This one is as clear cut as the Art Ross Trophy. What a fun season for us Leaf fans, playoffs and a major trophy for Matthews. It's the first time since Gilmour won a Selke in the 90s.

Matthews topping the season with 40 goals, with the 40th being the empty netter that sealed our playoff spot likely secured it for him. Its an incredible milestone for a rookie.

They're finalists not nominees. Or more accurately, they are the top three vote-getters. Nominee implies a two step process where a small group is chosen and then there is another round of voting.

I mean, Laine had a slightly better PPG... its closer than people think.

But Matthews is the better 2-way, and his team made the playoffs.

At the end of the season, it's got to be these three as the finalists. I think it'll be Matthews but I also think Werenski has an outside shot at grabbing votes for having a insane season on D which is hard to compare to forwards sometimes.

The fact that it was close is even further credit to Matthews.

Matthews not only played Center(and a 200ft game) he only played with rookies at even strength. Hyman, Nylander and Brown.

What a ****ing slap in the face to the best rookie of the year, completely over looked, the guy who carried a line of rookies, Zach Hyman.

Laine.

He is a year younger and played fewer games than Matthews.

I dont see how Matthews isent winning this.

Only way i can see Laine getting it would be if they value 3 hattricks and Laine returning from the concusion like a boss and having the goal/point lead for most of the season. Possibly that he was thrown into first line from the get go as jets had no other choice with all the injuries while matthews was sheltered first month or so.

Playwise both play all 3 zones while Matthews as the center has more responsibilities in his own zone.

This Matthews will win and he deserves to do so.
Wouldnt hurt if the voting was somewhat close tho ^^

Laine going to sleep for the last few weeks of the season when he was moved off of the
Scheifele line is what sunk him. He had it lined up for the taking and for a long stretch of the season i thought he would run away with it.

Matthews and Laine are on equal footing when it comes to goal scoring and point producing this season, give a slight edge to Laine due to his points per game. Where the clear difference comes in is all the other areas of the game. Matthews is a tier above him when it comes to play in his own zone, he plays the more demanding position, and he also played the entire season with rookies on either side of him, one being the offensively challenged Hyman.

Amazing season for rookies this year, it will most likely be referred to as the point where the next wave of top tier talent was ushered in.

Two things that really don't have any weight in voting for the Calder I'd imagine, but keep grasping at those straws. It's going to be Matthews.
