The Minutemen select its starting fourth line right winger, superpest Matthew Barnaby, who played on Mark Messier's wing for three years as a Ranger, a part time top-6 role player and regular bottom-6 performer, scoring 300 points in 834 NHL games, scoring 7 goals and 13 points in the 1998 NHL playoffs, leading all Sabres in points to Game 6 of the conference finals. He twice led the NHL in PIMs and seven times was top-10 in PIMs. He was listed as number one on TSN's top-10 all-time list of agitators, and certainly he had a reputation for getting under the skin of opponents. He was popular in his own dressing room and villified in the opponent's room.

The best way to describe Matthew Barnaby as a player is as the game's ultimate pest. His style of play is in your face, aggressive to the point of infuriation. He's brash, cocky and arrogant. He taunts opposing players, talks trash, and fights just about anyone who will pay attention to him long enough to drop the gloves. There's very little middle ground where he's concerned. Barnaby's fans love him. Everyone else in and around the league can't stand him.
