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.
I saw that tonight too. I think it was just the way he moves out there that reminds me of Gonch. Though I don't think he has the offensive instincts to be another Gonchar. He's got an active stick and is good 1v1, but IMO he can get caught out of position at times.
