A few thoughts:

1) Debate all you want the 7th round pick last year--I think most would agree Hyka would have made more sense than Mathers, but whatever. THey didn't think enough of him to use a late-round pick last year.

2) From what I can tell, he played well this year. Improved for sure. But he was also a year older, and you need to evaluate his production in that context.

3) He's still a rail-thin C from the QMJHL. He didn't exactly put up Giroux-like numbers either.

Might he make us look dumb someday? Sure, it's possible.

Is he likely to be a better player than that Wilcox kid we took in the 5th? I have no earthly idea, but I don't think it is a sure-thing.
