It means they're buying extra time... Is it specifically his 6th game kills the contract? They could keep him up another 3-5 practices to make a choice. See how quick Henrique gets into form? I don't even know anymore.

It means he's not getting sent down, but he's not going to play either.

It's his 6th game played that locks in the contract year. Nothing stopping him from sticking around for another couple of days. Typical Lou, he's not going to let a deadline get in his way of making a decision.

O crap I didn't even think about that.

If it's just his 6th game played then they could use that spot from Janssen and sign Darche and just scratch Matteau until Henrique can play.

Pretty clever, and pretty odd if true.

I said this already today: "When you have time on your side, you use it."

So, what does Lou do? Creates time. Figures.

Lamoriello said Janssen was placed on waivers to create roster flexibility and Henrique is now day to day. Those 2 players seem connected.

What's the window on sending Cam down after clearing waivers? A day, a week?

Definitely adds flexibility the longer that window is.

He's staying, and he's contract status is not an obstacle, they'll sacrifice one year of it.

Wow so if Matteau can't play and Henrique is still working his way back in, then Janssen and Barch both have to play tomorrow unless you dress 7 D.

Goodness gracious.

If they are really going to do that and leave Darche unsigned then you have to play Harrold, Janssen, or Larsson with Barch. Definitely don't like the way that looks. If that persists into the weekend it is going to be ugly.

What options are there other than "play" or "not play?" Are the Devils going to launch Matteau into space? That would still be "not play."

Funny Spector. Very Funny

Guessing Lou keeps him around until he sees if he can make a trade for a forward or not. If he can make a deal then Stef goes back...if he can't then Stef likely stays. I think the team would rather burn a yr of Matteau's deal than sign Darche TBH

I'm pretty impartial of Mytoe this season either way. He should be a 3rd liner or so and probably won't make a whole ton of impact. Difference is Darche wouldn't either but a trade would bump players down and allow Clarkson/Zubrus to.

Matteau has played 8:28 a game. I see no reason why you burn a year of contract for a player that can't play significant minutes for the team.

I don't disagree but he really hasn't contributed much overall and itsn't worthy of taking up time with Zajac and Kovy. We need someone in that role that is going to contribute and fast. Henrique will be a welcome addition for sure but I just don't see it being worth it to keep the kid up for 8 min a game.

Let's not forget that Matteau is 18, has only been with the team for a little over 2 weeks, is playing in a new system and in the NHL for the first time. Considering the circumstances he's done a pretty good job. He's only going to get better if they decide to keep him.

Only Lou could turn routine roster moves into palace intrigue
