Well if Matteau plays great in camp, I would not say we are in trouble if he makes the team.

Nor would I expect him to play 80 games. I'm sure they would rotate him in and out to keep him fresh over the course.

I think if u envision Ted and Butler as potential 3rd line guys, then Matteau defineately has a chance. He will need to have a big time camp, but the oppurtunity is there for him.
