I also belive that he will eventually be an assist man. He can make sweet passes. Hopefully he will start crushing people like he did in his first year. He is definetely a player.

It's not his 'powerforward' potential, it's his scoring potential that makes him such a solid prospect.

What an idiotic thread.
Good points. Detroit also had datsyuk and Zetterberg at a discount. If Price breaks through the Habs will have Price, Lats, Higgins, Komi, Titts 1 and Titts 2, Halak, Plecs all making less than they eventually will with Markov, obyrne and Gorges a possibility.

Last year Detroit had Kronvall Filippula and Franzen not making a lot.

Last year the Kostitsyns played welland contributed and the team was patient when they had growing pains. Price also.

Lats is a lot like Ryder but more well rounded, he is reliant on a playmaking center. Ryder saw his offense drop when he was no longer with Koivu. A guy like S.Kost Tanguay or Higgins can play on just about any line as they give you a bit of everything and are more playmakers than scorers. A.Kost is a finisher but he is better at carrying the puck and beating guys one on one than Lats so he can score that way.
