also it looks like kind of a reach. Ranked 41 on one list, 34 on another. Better talent was to be had

Also has him listed as a center.

Lou fell asleep at the wheel just like did when he screwed up qualifying Raffi, Madden and White. Should've given up the pick this year.

Oh well, I got past '94 a long time ago. If the guy can help the Devils win, that's all I care about. How great would it be to see him burn the Rangers someday? I'd rather root for him to do something like that someday than to root against him for something his father did almost 20 years ago. Like it or not, this kid may be a Devil someday...might as well embrace him.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

We should have given up the pick this year. What a waste.

Do you even know any thing about this player besides that his dad is the famous Matteau?

Who cares anyway, Henriques goal is fresh in my mind. :)

In all honestly, Conte must of seen him as the BPA. He is feisty and aggressive. You can say Collberg would of been better or another player but do you think Lou really just "wasted" a 1st rounder when we had to surrender one in the near future? C'mon now.

I like it.

He is only 18.

Why would he decline to sign with us anyways?

hilarious move to nullify any rags chant now, we have matteau and henrique covered. the only way they can come back is drafting brodeur but i doubt he would sign with them.

hope he actually works out as a player lol

I trust Lou and Conte, they've drafted well recently and I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Hockey Prospect, talks about how he is strong defensively and plays a high tempo game with a strong work ethic. He may not ever develop real strong offensive skills or finish but he seems like the type of player who can protect the puck and move the play forward. Picking this late in a weak draft, especially for forwards, its not like they were going to get an elite level offensive talent. Sure other guys like Collberg and Sissons were still on the board but this seems like the type of player that with his skill set, could develop into a real useful piece for the Devils.

Mark Edwards the head scout for Hockey Prospect is a fan of his and mentions that the Armada staff should coach him well. His dad is actually an assistant on the staff. He may not be a sexy pick but there are reasons to be optimistic.

Honestly? This is a reaction? Clarkson is 28 in August. Matteau is 18. He probably won't be in the NHL for another 5 years, if he ever makes it.

Wow, TSN really had the '94 clip locked and loaded for this pick.

If picking this player was what's best for the team then I guess I support the pick, but it's going to take a bit to bring myself to cheer for him.

Nothing to do with his name. I actually like that part of it. His ceiling appears to be Steve Bernier. That's what bothers me.

Notice the Devils even had a jersey with his name prepared! It's usually only done for players who you're planning on drafting all along. Lou must've been scheming for months. :giggle:

Lou is such a troll.

Posted Image

You almost HAVE to think Lou is gonna wiggle his way out of that penalty with the new CBA. Only explanation I can think of.

You keep saying that, but I can't see how that would work. Even if the new CBA establishes a new way of penalizing teams for that stuff, it cannot affect the penalties that were already put on clubs. We won't get away with this, I'm afraid.

The reason Id say I dont like it is because he's a future pick. Hes not going to even be in Albany next year and this year seemed like the perfect time to pay our penalty for Kovy.

That's what you get at #29. Every pick this late is a "future pick".

"Matteau intends to join Blainville-Boisbriand Armada in the QMJHL for the 2012-13 season."

Of course he's going to play in the QMJHL next year (and the year after that, and perhaps for another one as well), he's a late 1st round pick and that's what late 1st round picks do: play in minor leagues for a couple of years before breaking into the NHL.

hilarious move to nullify any rags chant now, we have matteau and henrique covered.

Ha, I didn't think about Henrique at first! :D That's right, we now have both Matteau and King Henrique. And we won the most recent and one of the biggest series those teams ever played with each other.

Its wishful thinking, Rev. I realize we're probably not getting away with this. Can only have faith in Lou at this point.

94's pain died the second that Henrique put that puck in the back of the net.

We've drafted the son of an Islander who scored a big goal against the Rags, now a Rag who scored a big goal against us, and next up a Devil's offspring who scored a big goal against a Flyer. Elias get on that unless Pepe's got a kid
