Latendresse is a better player when he has better players with him, no question about it. But when Koivu and Higgins spend so much time working together during the season and in the pre-season, and Latendresse spends a lot of time on Lang's wing, its better to keep those combinations together until its clear they are not working.
It is clear that Latendresse works well with Koivu.
He has produced with him since he made the team.
10 points for the line in 1 game...it's staying together for now.
