THN: Shawn Matthias to Montreal

This is the third time I see/hear this rumor this week, apparently Bergevin wants tp acquire Shawn Mattias.

6'4" 220 pound centre that shoots left and only 25 years old!

Possibly the perfect 3rd line centre? Or Winger to play with Eller and Galchenyhuk?

Would be a good pickup.

Not an overly physical guy but he isn't timid and has some skill.

I like Shawn mathias but I wouldn't over pay either. I wouldn't give more than a second rounder for him.

A 2nd rounder might be ok... but it still bumps somebody from the team... the dream scenario would be to move Bourque or better yet Desharnais, of course, but surely Florida isn't up for that, alas. I guess I'd have to know the whole scenario. Mathias isn't really a good enough player to go too far out of our way to acquire.

Mathias is a big kid who can really skate. He does not possess more than 3rd line potential but he could develop into a solid shutdown player. Another player I covet on the Panthers is Eric Gudbranson.

Man, we need a closer. A finisher. A clutch winger. Someone with hockey sense through the roof. Not another 'fingers-crossed' kinda player.

Keep the 2nd and add it to a deal to land a bigger fish imo.

But I like how the habs are making the rumour pages.

Yeah, I'd make a move on Kulikov + Matthias if we were able to move Diaz, DD and Bourque in the move or a subsequent move elsewhere or to Florida.

I would imagine a line of Matthias-Eller-Gallagher would be a puck possession monster.

If they're really interested in Matthias, this is the best time to get him. His value is at a minimum.

Depends on the pick but if 3rd or lower, then I'm all for this.

Maybe Pateryn + a 3rd rounder for him? Then Bourque to a team for a pick?

I like Matthias, I just don't see the fit here. He's big, but he doesn't really play big.

Ex-teammate of PK in Belleville too, for what it's worth.

Really Matthias? He will make a marginal impact on the team. He's at best a lateral move if Bourque is shipped out. Right now, he hasn't shown much consistency to pot 10-15 goals a season. He will also need playing time to produce and right now there isn't any room in the top 9 with the signing of Briere and emergence of Bournival.
