He might be able to, we won't know until we see him in a training camp against NHL players. But leaving him in the Q for a little longer might not be a bad option, in order to develop his offensive game even more before he turns pro.
I look at Matteau as a player in the mould of Zubrus. The Flyers stunted Zubrus's offensive game by rushing him, he might have been a much better player if they had developed him properly. I don't want the same thing to happen to Matteau, I want him to be developed to his maximum potential and I trust Lou to do it.
