Matteau showed signs of being a good player with us this season, there is no reason to think he won't be a good NHL forward.
Agreed.

Oh, I had meant age didn't matter in terms of his eligibility for next year. Thought you were saying it does.

I'm seriously amazed if this is a press conference to announce he's quitting lol.. that just sounds hilarious to my non-Devils fan self.

Do they do this stuff often in Canada? God I wish I grew up there.. even Juniors is covered more rigorously than the Devils

Google translate for the win!

That article doesn't say that at all. He's speculating about Matteau's future with the team and that's about it. There's nothing that states that he might be suspended.

It doesn't say that Matteau hasn't quit the team or that it's pure speculations. It actually says that Matteau has caused alot of waves in his 1st season in the "Q" and that the ex NHL player and current owner/Gm of the team, Joel Bouchard, suspended him early on in the season for a hit from behind on Philippe Archambault and that his lack of discipline was something that wasn't flying with the organisation and he chose a very poor moment to stir the ship once more when taking into consideration that they're currently in the middle of the post season.

Hockey in Canada, is like NCAA football/basketball in the US. The coverage they get is a little over the top but what can you do.

The fact that Joel Bouchard runs his team like a NHL type team doesn't help either. You wouldn't see that from a smaller market team but since Boisbriand is about 15 minutes away from Montreal, they like to act a little more important then the rest of the teams who are mostly located in the suburbs (Québec being the only other team with a bigger fanbase).

The article doesn't say the author doesn't think Matteau has quit?

"We'll see this afternoon, but personally, I have trouble believing it."

You can argue all you want about opinions but you lose all credibility when you fail to read a sentence correctly.

If that`s the hit I have in mind, Archambault got Bernier`d like Scuderi. I didn`t agree with the suspension back then and I sure as hell can`t agree now.

This could support one of the previously stated theories.

I didn't even see the hit to be honest with you... just saying that his Gm suspended him for a hit that saw the league hand him a 1 game suspension and got a extra one from his Gm.

That and the fact that Joel Bouchard isn't all that happy about his constant lack of discipline.

It's only based on his personal opinion. In short he has no clue what Bouchard is going to say at 12:30

Preaching to the choir, exactly what we talked about at the time.

I too would be upset if this was happening to me regularly.

I feel truly sorry for this kid. For the simple reason that he will NEVER out live being picked when half the people think we should have given up. He will have to become the next Parise or something better for everyone to like him. Every mistake me makes will be magnified here he will be the first person everyone wants traded or sat on a nightly basis.

Kids 19 lots of 19y/o make stupid moves. It happens hardly anything to worry about.

MY BAD, he did say that he has trouble believing it. I red the article while I was on the phone with someone... again, my bad

He also said that according to rumors, Matteau might have ditched the team, so it's not as if he has any inside info on the matter, he's basically spitballing here.

Anyways, we'll see what Joel Bouchard has to say in about a hour but to have a press conference in the middle of a playoff run doesn't sound like they're about to announce that he'll get a slap on the wrist.

If so, talk about creating a MASSIVE distraction to your own team.

So you're saying a spoiled 18 year old threw a hissy fit because he didn't get what he wanted?

This kid is a 2nd generation hockey player. He's probably been groomed to be a pro athlete his entire life, probably being spoiled and pampered ever since he's been a toddler. He'll get over it.

Don't get me wrong, pretty much any scenario is a negative for Matteau. I'm just willing to forgive the teenager unless something ridiculous occurred.

Are you serious???


So a 19-year-old(going on 20) is going to determine whether we go deep into the playoffs next year? okay then.....

Pretty sure he means the fact that we'd be giving up a much higher pick.

To which I agree, though not necessarily "deep". If the pick is higher than 17-18, I think Lou made the right choice. That could be 1st round exit as a 7th or 6th seed..
