Also, between contract structure (NMC for eichel, signing bonuses and general frontloading) plus the fact there's only a $1.6M difference in the deals (albeit for 3 less years), I'd argue the contracts are similar considering the player difference. Eichel is not even remotely in the same realm as Matthews in goal scoring. He just isn't.
Since EICHEL entered the league (he gets a year head start), matthews has 5v5 113G, 190P, eichel has 78 goals and 185 points in 72 more games played.
Also, I don't fully excuse him for having a bad team, because it didn't stop McDavid or Draisaitl, or any star young players on rebuilding teams. It's a factor, but cmon matthews is way better</div></div>
Nobody is right, and nobody is wrong. This is going to be the next “Crosby vs Ovechkin” or “Gretzky vs Lemieux”. It doesn’t matter, we can all agree to disagree. Matthews is one hell of a player, so is Eichel. If Matthews was a Sabre today, and Eichel was a Leaf, whose not to say we’d not be having this exact conversation?
Here’s all I’m saying, it’s going to be an interest 15-20 years moving forward.
