I've been watching this team since 1975 and in my opinion, Lats AT THIS POINT is barely an NHLer, let alone a power forward with soft hands.

Like I said before, if Lats was so good, he would be on the PP instead of Higgins!
Honestly Lats brings nothing to the table other than a big body. Almost every player had something they disticntly can do well except Lats.
- Not a great passer
- Can't take passes well or finish
- Definitly doesnt deke or gain the zone
- Doesnt grind in front of the net
- Doesnt crash and bang like someone his size should
- Not a fast skater unless you let him speed up for 5 minutes to reach his "raw" speed LMAO

Once in awhile he does that weird spinorama shot that goes in. He needs to either pick something and get good at it or get ready to lose his spot.
