Suggesting that he should be in Hamilton directly from the 1st/2nd line in the big club is ridiculous. Especially after a start of 7 pts in 9 games.

The only thing I don't like from Lats is his ability to receive the puck. It's somewhat deficient but I'm sure he will improve this aspect once he gains more confidence.
I'm not blinded by anything.I dont' hate Lats. Gimme a break. I find it hilarious though how some have this irrational love for him and defend the guy no matter what. If Lats was on another team people would think he's a 3rd line player at best if that. But since he's on the Habs oh it's a different story. I do think he'd be better served playing more minutes in Hamilton. I just think we have guys in the system who are better than him right now and should be playing on the Habs instead. His inclusion on the 2nd line or whatever line we're calling it, is a smoke and mirrors job. You dont' honestly believe Lats is a top 6 forward do you? If not than his demotion to Hamilton isn't such a stretch. The guy might be good someday but right now there are others who would compliment that line and others much more in my opinion.
