Cale makar, Adam fox, jack hughes, kirill kaprizov, miro heiskanen, and Nikita kucherov. You are failing to recognize the value of term and cap hit. Sure they may not be Matthew’s but on the trade market they’re more valuable. Let’s put it this way, would you rather have 2 years of Matthew’s or 7+ years of any of these guys. Matthew’s is the third best player in the world and holds a ton of value as a player, but in the salary cap era, cap hit and term is also a big factor in a players value. There are strong arguments for so many U25 players with 6+ years of term to be more valuable than matthews. If Matthews is extended, he is only less valuable than mcdavid and makar.
