Could've been that Lou and Conte thought that Matteau had the best chance to reach his potential (even if his upside wasn't as high as some others), but as we know, the drafts were not kind to Lou and Conte over the last several years. And we know what that led to... At least Shero managed to get a guy back for him who looks like he'll be an NHLer for a while. Just hope people are reasonable in what they expect from Smith-Pelly. Matteau was picked right around where he was projected by most people. Drafting a bust at the second to last pick in the first round of what is proving to be a below average draft is not terrible, except for the fact that keeping that pick might have cost the Devils from being able to draft someone like Dylan Larkin two years later.
