I used to throw Jonsson's name around as a comparable for Matta but Matta is more of a shooter. He reminds me of a young Gonchar and he's really cleaned up his game this year. IMO he's taken the biggest step up the prospects ladder this year along with Thompson and Augie.
Maatta is getting better, still has some moments though. He drifted out of his coverage zone last night, realized it, then tried to just cover the high man and he stumbled into him backwards.

It looked as stupid as it sounds.
