Just a thought: weird situation tonight, Matteau playing on a first line after not making the world junior team while Galchenyuk was arguably the best player for team USA and they're in the same position in the NHL.

He is just not ready so why push him, his 18. They pushed Teddy and I do not see him turning that corner to a NHL player. Don't do the same to Matteau!

I look forward to seeing what our lineup will be minus Tedenby and Matteau, plus Henrique and Darche. Matteau has promise, but now just isn't his time.

Teddy waited a year before coming over. Though in hindsight that was probably too soon anyways.

Yep, it's time for Tedenby to go as well. It's a contact league and he gets thrown around like a rag doll out there.

I say keepo Matteau, and Either Play Larsson or send him down, he will not improve if he's in street cloths during every game...

I'm so torn on this.. I think Matteau could stay and be a decent regular for us, but I also feel like his overall production and contribution won't justify him losing a full year of eligibility down the road.. Then again, if we lose him then who replaces him? Not sure we have the F depth, so sending him back to juniors could seal this team's fate for this year

Thank god I'm not Lou here

Harri Pesonen? Matteau is getting 10 minutes a game of ice time and hasn't really been that good, I don't think replacing him should be hard.

Bingo. No reason to keep him around. He's not doing anything that can't be replaced very easily. Outside of a couple of shots he really hasn't added much and it's not worth wasting a year of his ELC to keep him around.

Shame he didn't score on that power move yesterday. Almost!
