Yeah it sounds like he can step right in if they decide on sending Matteau down. Could end up being perfect timing.
I think they should send Matteau down. He looks amazing right now but end of the day, he's not adding much value to the team that cannot be replaced. Not worth the year of his contract unless they really think his development can be accelerated by being with the big club.
or swap Clarkie and Zubrus if the Elias-Clarkson chemistry gets going
Four solid lines there IMO.
I'd been hoping for Tedenby on line one just because Zubrus being there made the third line terrible. If Teds can't score with Zajac and Kovy, he's never going to be a scorer in the NHL. If Tedenby sucks it up, send him down, move Zubrus back to line 1 LW, Clarkie to line 2 RW and probably bring up Bernier to line 3 RW. Cam takes his spot on 4th line.
