If anything, the Phillie series proved 2 things we need.
1-an experienced goalie, the 2 kids struggled as the pressure mounted
2-more wingers that are strong in traffic(Lats is our best young one)
Lats is underused playing with guys like Lappy Dandenault Begin etc. Stick him on Koivu's wing with either S.Kost or Higgins. Him and Koivu are made for each other. Lats is not great at carrying the puck, Koivu is strong at it, Lats goes to the net and shoots the puck, Koivu is a prime passer.
