When a superstar does something that even he can’t believe, it’s must-watch.
Freak. Auston Matthews is a freak who does freakish things maybe two or three other freaks have been capable of in the HISTORY of the League.
His hand-eye coordination is McDavid/Crosby-like. It’s hard to understand the physics behind this goal no matter how many times you watch the clip.

Every angle breeds more questions. When you break it down into words, it’s even harder to comprehend.
He batted a tipped pass from Nick Foligno around the defender to himself, going inside-post in 1.3 seconds.
Matthews turned a broken play into a 2-Dick lead in 1.3 seconds from 20 feet.
Sean is legendary Leaf broadcaster Joe Bowen’s son. He’s been around the Leafs since he was shitting cloth diapers next to Joe in the Gondola at Maple Leaf Gardens.
“The best ever'” isn’t just high praise, it’s a fact.
The Leafs have never had a player who’s as automatic as Matthews. No player in the history of the franchise is capable of what Matthews does every time he steps on the ice.
Most players have a handful of ‘Wow’ moments. Matthews has them every night, at both ends.
If the first round of the playoffs (should be Leafs/Habs) is anything like last night’s 4-1 dicking of Montreal, it’ll be over before it begins.
And no, I won’t feel sorry for Corey Perry. He could have been a Leaf and decided to wear a clown suit instead.
He’s still a giant fuck.
