Maatta or Despres. They both worry me equally because of their bone-head decisions at times. Despres has more size, but Maatta has more offense, well-rounded game, and unquestionable work ethic.


Maatta has done a hell of a lot for a person of his age, but at the same time, I'm not sure if he'll ever be able to excell at the highest of levels as he moves up the pro ranks, and may get just destroyed by high-end opponents.


I guess we'll see very soon on Despres, as the Pens are putting him into sink or swim mode right now, whether his play really merits it or not. We'll have to wait longer to find that out about Maatta, however.
