He's a bottom 6 player. Nothing wrong with that. We need quality bottom 6 guys.
I didn't say top 6 player. I think Matthias is a very good 3rd line player.

Problem with our team is that we have 3 very good 3rd line centers on the team right now and no top 6 centers with Weiss out.

Goc is a very good 3rd line center but is currently being asked to do too much as a top six guy. He's a -7 in his last 5 games with just 2 assist.

If you look at Goc's career stats he has 143 points in 465 career games. That's 30%. and he's a minus 16.

Matthias career stats are 68 points in 230 games. That's 30% and he's a minus 8.

In his last 5 games when given a bigger role he has 3 goals, 1 assist and a plus 3. And he's playing with Skille and an AHL player on his wings not Huby/Mueller or Flash/Stegger

Again, not saying he's a top 6 guy. Solid 3rd line guy. But I think it's a waste to play him on the 4th.
