I just chuckled when I saw the news...typical Lou

Surprised Winnipeg would give him up that early though.

Send matteau down. He doesn't need to be playing 5 minutes a night. Put him Albany where he get increased competition over Jr. and can play more.

Matteau is playing 12-15 mins a night now... hardly 5 mins.

Dont believe he can play in Albany until his Jr team is done playing. So right now if he isnt in NJ he is back to Jr.

Pretty sure Matteau can cause he was drafted out of the USDL

Anywhere on the top 9, hell he was good with Zajac and Kovy during the playoffs.

Matteau cannot go to Albany until his junior season is done

I am almost positive.

Never should have let him go in the first place, but what`s done is done.

Welcome back, Poni!

He`s going to be a part of a bigger trade, just watch.

I know, just making the point that fourth is not a biggie and at the very least NJ can recoup it. Teams get desperate enough, a 3rd or a 2nd could be had. Heck, Gaustad went for a first last year. (Not implying a first is possible).

With Zubrus hurt, I imagine Ponikarovsky gets to be the latest guy to be on the Zajac/Kovalchuk line. Ideally Ponikarovsky'll be on the 3rd line eventually. And I wouldn't expect him to see much PP time.

I'd guess something along the lines of:

Ponikarovsky-Zajac-Kovalchuk
Elias-Henrique-Clarkson
Carter-Gionta-Bernier
Barch-Josefson-Butler
(Matteau/Lotkionov)

I've felt like NJ missed Poni's play, but it's pretty crazy that they got him back this quickly. Now there is a huge logjam of forwards. It'll be interesting to see which players solidify themselves on the roster.

Sucks about Zubrus though. If two months is the worst case scenario, we'll have a pretty good playoff addition on our hands.

DeBoer didn't shy away from using him with different linemates during the playoffs. Occasionally, it was Henrique and Clarkson, Josefson and Clarkson and even Zajac and Kovalchuk.

Usually it was Clarkson and either Josefson/Zajac. In the playoffs he got some shifts with Zubrus and Bernier.

I'm expecting Matteau to stay in the lineup for Barch most games. Try to see if he can develop enough to be someone we can run with in the playoffs.

It would be nice to see the Ponikarovksy - Zubrus - Bernier unit again when Zubrus gets healthy. They just abused on the forecheck.

Well Lou more or less confirmed Poni wasn't talking out of his *** last offseason after all.
