Bingo....your bang on!!!

Tender is TOO tender. He needs to play mean and aggressive and start using his body to control the play when he is on the ice to make room for his linemates and like you said....if he won't do that, then we need to go out and find someone who will because thats one area we are lacking.

I like Latendresse and I think he has a lot of potential, but he is not a skilled forward who is going to make nice plays and score pretty goals and thats all he tried to do last year. He made the Habs roster a couple years ago because he done a lot of hitting and played aggressive in the pre-season....and now that he is on the team....he has stopped playing that style. Time to start being the big power forward he really is....thats the only way he will be any good to the Habs.
