Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta played his ninth game for the Pittsburgh yesterday against the Colorado Avalanche. The team now must make a decision on the young blue liner's future, as any games played past game number nine would trigger this as Maatta's rookie season and the first year of his rookie deal. The Pens could send Maatta back to London of the OHL if they think the kid isn't ready, but with a goal and some incredible defensive play, he may just stick around.
Either way, I love Olli Maatta and felt he needed his own song. So why not the 2001 song Yatta! by the Japanese parody/comedy group Green Leaves? Maatta was like seven years old when this song came out, but his name rhymes, so what's done is done.
It's so easy.
Happy go lucky.
Pretty much describes Maatta's blue line play through nine games.
