Maatta to me is almost identical to Despres at the same age. Perhaps a bit more polished defensively, but not as physically developed. He can do a little of everything, except quarterback a power play. And that might come with time.

Shero and his scouts like those d-men that aren't particularly flashy but have character, smarts and do the little things to win games. Add Maatta to that pile. And London is a hell of a program, if Maatta has any holes in his game keeping him from having NHL success, he won't in 2 years time.
