SK didn't even get to play one game pre-season game until last season.

SK's junior stats are vastly superior to Lats' stats.

3) Lats is a power forward... at his size and with his hands in close, thats what he is..... Was John Leclair not a power forward too?? How long did he take?? He may nto be a cam neely, or jarome iginla... but he's a big, strong, guy who can go to the net, has soft hands and can score goals... thats a power forward
He's not. I'm not sure why you keep saying he is, just because he's big doesn't mean he plays the game a certain way. He's a finesse scorer, and that's fine with me.

4) Age is very relevant; if you can't see that being 21 has a huge impact on where he is right now, and you are ready to give up on him.... Well then you can be the next Mike Milbury, giving up on guys like Olli Jokinen, Todd Bertuzzi, and Roberto Luongo cause they werent producing in Long Island in their very early 20s.
If age is relevant, then it proves my point that he was brought up too soon.
