    Not exactly a prospect anymore - but what is his upside at this point ?

    Once he was very highly regarded ....

    I am also curious how well he has been in the NHL.

    He was a beast in juniors.

    Even we as Panthers Fans don't know. He would shows flashes and then be demoted to the 4th line..... His upside is probably a 2nd liner, but more than likely he will be a 3rd liner.

    Despite his reputation, I was disappointed in DeBoer's ability to develop the younger players on the roster. I think Matthias could thrive in the right situation.

    I think he realistically projects as a strong third line center who could play on the second line and not look out of place.

    Detroit traded Matthias and their 2007 2nd for Bertuzzi at the 2007 TDL.

    my take as a florida fan:

    i see him becoming a very good third line center - maybe like a manny malhotra. the speed of the nhl seems to fast for him to ever evolve into anything more. he doesn't have the vision to be a playmaker, and just doesn't have the scoring instincts to be a top-6 scorer.

    he's fast, big, strong, though, so if he can work on his defensive game to the point where he's a regular contributor on the PK - i see him being a 15-20 goal, 30-40 point 3rd line center who's big and somewhat physical presence.
