“I think it was kind of obvious it was going to happen when [coach Kevin Dineen] was let go. I was happy to be moved and happy for the new opportunity,'' Matthias said. "It’s a different atmosphere [in Vancouver], a different culture. You play hard and you play. In Florida, too many guys were given things and it’s not the right way. Here, it’s you earn your ice time.’’...
“I think it was obvious when guys were out, and how well I played,’’ Matthias said. “And when they came back, nothing really changed, it seemed like it never happened. I was upset for awhile here and wanted a fair shake and now I’m in a really good situation.’’
Matthias said he was, “ecstatic,’’ to be traded and hopes to score a couple of goals Sunday.
“That’s what I’m absolutely planning on doing,’’ Matthias smiled.
