FTB: Will Auston Matthews sit until the playoffs?

With one week left in the season should the Maple Leafs dress him or not?

Good morning fans of the Toronto Maple Legs and wayward investors.

We're down to the nitty-gritty of the season, with only four more games to go.

One question that we have for these four games is about the best player in the league. Auston Matthews has missed the past three games with an undisclosed "new" injury, and with so few games remaining, will we see him again before the playoffs?

You want to have your players going at 100% coming into the post-season, and with a playoff spot guaranteed, why risk making the injury worse?

Matthews may want to get back into the games for a couple reasons; he's in the Hart Trophy race, he's only two goals away from 60 on the season, anw d he has that competitive nature that the best ones have.

So, readers, what say you?
