It's a kids league, it's stupid.   Every single thing they whined about him doing probably took place during that.   Well, definitely "being the aggressor in a fight"....

And now the other side of it comes out (a TG interview with Stephane)

Boy, the junior team looks so bad with this nonsense.

sure stef should have not gotten into a shouting match with his coach but its clear that the junior team was almost looking for a reason to make an example of him for the benefit of the rest of the team that no matter who you are, you fall into line or there are consequences.

 

from a devils' perspective, its pretty much a non-story. he'll either make the team next year or go to albany and be a taxi call up. i think zubrus' status plays a big part in where he begins next season.

I suspected Stefan Matteau was being used as an example/scapegoat by the Armada. Not surprised to see his dad confirm this. At least it's behind him now.

We have worse infractions in our farm system, this was just an emotional outburst after losing a game. I am sure the other alluded incidents were minor too.

 

I hope Stefans father told him that that wouldn't fly in the AHL/NHL.

I really don't see a big deal at all. He will be in the Devils system next year and that will set him straight.

Sounded from TG's article that all is forgiven, except maybe Matteau sr. may be pretty pissed with the team's unprofessional conduct and won't return as an assistant.

Matteau will most likely be in the AHL/NHL next year but for the record his QMJHL rights have been traded to Rimouski Oceanic.

Why did we send him down after 23 games? We started our tailspin right after that.

The way he looked with the big club, I think he'll manage fine in the AHL. I agree it's unlikely to see him head back to juniors. Though it's certainly no surprise he wouldn't be with the same team, lol.
