I dont think he's ever going to be a dominating player, but he does seem to be able to hack it as a 'glue' guy on a line. A guy you can shuffle around anywhere in the top 9 and not drag a line down. Those players are very valuable
A zubrus-in-his-prime sort of guy would be a great result for Matteau. He should be given plenty of time this year, so it will be interesting to see what he becomes.
