I attended a couple of Armada games so far and what stood out from Matteau is that he's built like a freaking tank. He looks real heavy on his skates and his balance is top notch.

He's been playing on the 3rd line, well the games I saw him play that is, with a couple of "no name" players and he's getting the best out of his linemates. He's not scared of dropping the mits and after cleaning someones clock from a real clean but lethal hit, he gave a beatdown to some kid last week against Drummondville.

I see in Matteau what I saw from Marchand when he first started off in the "Q" with Moncton and if he can turn into a complementary 1st line "grinder" like Brad, I'll be more then happy about our 2012 1st round pick.

We need that kind of grinding forward to play with Kovy while mentaining the flo of things offensively. Like someone else mentionned, I can also see him turning out like a Zubrus type player... but a little more physical.
