A Nevada judge sentenced former NFL star Darren Sharper to as many as eight years in prison for attempted sexual assault in Las Vegas as part of a four-state plea deal that could keep him behind bars for nearly two decades. Sharper was ordered to serve the Nevada sentence concurrently with an 18-year sentence he has already begun on state and federal charges in Louisiana.

Laine is great but when comparing him and Matthews lets remember : one has more points and the same amount of goals in the same amount of games playing with two other rookies in Toronto. The other is playing with two veteran league all-stars.

Matthews wins by a length thus far.
