You won't have a team to root for in a few years. 

 

You should read up what Blackstone and Apollo management group does. 

 

Have fun in Hartford.

Conte is next, and expect Marty to follow.

In Topic: 2 years - One way contract for Matteau

The idea of picking a 'sure thing' just isn't borne out by previous drafts.  The most likely NHLers are the ones that score more.  Way too often teams have taken 'safe' picks and they have ended up not very safe.  There's not much to suggest Matteau will be anything much better than he is right now which is a 3rd liner/4th liner/borderline NHL player.  That said, the 2012 draft is pretty awful and I feel pretty confident that Matteau is totally defensible as BPA.  For as mediocre as Stef has been, there's not a ton of forwards who have outperformed him.

 

 

Not even remotely true.

 

Do you think he has the size to play center in the NHL?

I'll always be resentful about Matteau because there was no reason for us to keep the pick that year. Who would we have drafted last year had we not lost the pick? Nylander? Ehlers?

 

Nylander is a risky pick, he has a much higher chance of busting.
