I don't like Matteau on that line because he isn't fully trusted by Kovy or Zajac yet

That line has been playing a 2/1 forecheck with Zajac and Matteau low and Kovy up high/in the slot and Zajac has often been caught working by himself down low giving the opposition an easier exit out of the zone

Not saying Matteau hasn't been doing his job, he's done exceptional for an 18 year old, but he is coming into the NHL and learning a system that isn't the easiest to pick right up
