I know.

But anyway, the Habs couldn't send Latendresse to the minors. It was either keep him with the Habs or send him back to junior. Evidently they felt he had more to learn in the NHL.
They were wrong, though. I know the Habs needed somebody with size(+ public pressure) but Lats was still just a kid. The best for him would have to return to Junior(where btw his team won the Quebec league championship that year) and then a few years in Hamilton and he would have been ready to go like when Higgins, Andrei and Plekanec came in and were pretty much NHL-ready after some time spent back there when Julien was coach.
