That is a big goalie. I guess RS didn't plan on playing 6 defensemen in WBS after all.

No offense, if they drafted Frk, the Pens would have had to make sure all their facilities met the American Disabilities Act. Frk is handicapped. He was born without a vowel.

Last guy on the Bob Mac top 60 to get selected.

TSN Scout Craig Button:
Matia had a start to his year that set him back and didn't allow him to adequately show what he's capable of. It began with a concussion and then a shoulder injury ended his season and he was never able to 'get his feet underneath him.' He is an excellent skater with speed and quickness and he can close on the fore-check quickly or create open ice and separation for himself. He is a competitor and he gets involved physically and he engages fully in the competitive battles. With his skating he can make a big difference in the game and while he has utilized it mostly for offense to this point, it certainly can be a weapon to play defense and disrupt an opponents' offensive thrust. He has a good shot and he will follow it to the net and pay the price to score. He is more of a player who 'receives' the puck than delivering it and with the right compliment of line mates, his skills could be maximized. He has a very good skill set and being able to stay healthy should help him realize his potential.

Reading several rumors in comments on TSN that Toronto is about to take Paul Martin off our hands. Toronto fans seem eager for it. Also reading that the Pens will then trade for Parise's rights knowing that they can in fact sign him to a 5 year deal (perhaps they had permission to talk to him).

Toronto flushes the Monster for a conditional 7th rounder. Maybe they're making that run at Luongo.
