Seriously though Matt played well last year. Not ideal but he has the wheels to gain the zone with ease. Then once we set up he can gtfo.

I think/hope we'll see a much improved Stef Elliott. He's a smart guy and I think he'll have seen the areas that need work and how to read NHL plays better. Plus another offseason of strengthening and bulking up should help.
