hmm... not quite. If Latendresse, Koivu and Tanguay somehow keep on playing like they are right now, forget it, they're not going to be split up. They're one of the most productive lines in the game right now.

Give Lats credit for working on his skating and working hard, but bottom line is that he's a 3rd line player IF he responsible in the defensive zone.

MaxPac will pass him on the depth chart either this late year or next year.... You can just see that the kid only need time.

Sorry Lats!
Higgins may be a better/more complete hockey player right now, but as far as offensive vision is concerned, Latendresse is at least just as good. I'm also sure Lats has better hands and a better shot than Higgins.

Higgins looks good because of its speed/hustle. But as far as pure talent is concerned, Latendresse is ahead. He, IMO, has as good a pair of hands as Sergei Kostitsyn... Sure Sergei has 10 times the vision of Lats, is faster, and is more agile, but as far as deking is concerned, Lats is beaten by really few guys on the team. He's top-3 on the team to protect the puck besides the boards IMO.
