Former NHL Referee Tim Peel Holds Nothing Back in Assessing Auston Matthews’ Playoff Efforts

After the Leafs’ game 5 loss, Tim Peel, a former NHL official, criticized Auston Matthews.

In a Twitter rant on Saturday, Tim Peel fired shots at Auston Matthews claiming he doesn’t have what it takes to lead a team in the playoffs.

Peel’s criticism of Matthews as soft is odd given how he intimidated young officials at a peewee hockey game.

Peel raises the possibility that the Leafs should make significant roster adjustments in another tweet.

Despite the fact that this is uncalled for, Matthews and the Leafs are getting the final laugh because they work for the NHL while Peel continues to be unemployed and tweet.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
