Matteo is a capable player, but his weak skating is ultimately what holds him back. He'll probably be a solid 3rd line center in a couple years, but he does need to become faster and a bit stronger first. I think the fact that he is a Ciccarelli is sometimes unfairly held against him because he does have an amazingly strong work ethic and is skilled, but like Dean said, it was pretty convenient being able to call up a local kid when the Sting needed too.
