Honestly, the guy will be great next year after getting half a year of NHL experience. Obviously, he can get the "sophomore" jinx but I honestly don't think he will go through that. I hope he will get more PP opportunities and more offensive responsibilities if the Habs don't get any UFA this summer. I expect him to hit around 15G 35A for 50 PTS next year. Watching him and his brother will be awesome for years to come.
I'm glad the team has 2 young forwards of such quality. The fact that they bring different things to the table doesn't spark any debate as to who is better, or it shouldn't, should it ? So now, they have 4 wingers who could easily give them 25+. Maybe with a ufa, some devlopment from Lats, we could have 6, the team's come a long way.
To try and denigrate just seems kind of weirdly petty. Personally, there are a lot of areas that some of these guys need to improve, and I hope we see signs of it next year.
