Juniors can be a joke.

Matteau play a great style of hockey and I want him in Albany next year anyways.

At the least Stefan should be a very good, physical, hit and shoot kind of third liner at least.

Juniors is a place where players are suspended for hits that would be legal (and celebrated even) in the NHL. I'm of the opinion Matteau should at least be in Albany next season, so he can actually learn and develop his game further.

It's a little funny (in a morbid sense) to think that a kid like Matteau can still be a victim to bullying, in a sense. All in all, it's good to know that this was more of a supreme ****-up on all accounts than a serious character flaw. I think Matteau would really benefit from a no-nonsense environment in Albany or Newark.

Ya, that's burning the bridges if I ever saw it.

I would love for Matteau to become a Lucic type of player.

By the sound of the Gulitti article, it sounds like Matteau wasn't being treated the same as the rest of his teammates by the coaches. Bouchard was putting Matteau on a pedestal and expecting him to be his golden boy while other players were getting away with all sorts of things that would get Matteau in trouble with the boss for not being perfect. Makes sense that he was frustrated enough to get into a shouting match.

Although Stephane acknowledged that Stefan made “a mistake”, he said he did not agree with the decision of Houle and GM/owner Joel Bouchard, to release him immediately after the game.

“They released him on emotion and emotion only,” Stephane Matteau said.
I'm glad we cleared this up.

Ya, it does not seem like they thought that decision through. Whatever, Matteau will be better served in the AHL next season anyway.
