Matthias is at the crossroads of "becoming" a 2nd line Center or "cementing" his role as a 3rd line Center. Time will tell I guess.
They definitely will fight for it and Matthias still doesn't get enough ice time because Dineen is weird like that. I'm just adamant about turning Matthias into a premier shut down third line center. He can skate with anyone and has the size to match up with anyone too.

Joel Quenville put Frolik on the fourth line in Chicago and turned him into a great penalty killer who can now slot in on any line when needed. I don't know why Dineen doesn't try to mold players like that?
