So, again... How would Poile acquire him? Matteau was a 1st round pick (29th overall) by the Devils last season. He has played for the Devils at the NHL level already. His QMJHL team has stated that they are releasing him, but will not do so till the season is over. All that's happened right now is that he was sent home. His is still under contract in the CHL to the Armada and has his NHL rights held by the Devils.

Poile would likely not be interested in acquiring Matteau, but I don't think Lou is looking to ship him off either. Expect Matteau to start next season in the AHL as he was drafted out of the NTDP and not the CHL.
