Latendresse needs to use his body to get in front of the net. He has talent but not the speed to outskate a defenseman and put himself in a position to score. So let Koivu and Tanguay do the work, just get your nose dirty and drive to the net, that where he score 90% of his goals. I still dont understand why he keep insisting to dump the puck and chase it, instead he shoud give the puck to his linemates and drive to the net and wait for a rebound or a tip.
I know Latendresse has potential but he play a style that he doesnt belong too. If Latendresse wants to make himself a good reputation in this league, he needs to play more physical and drive the net anytime he has the chance. Guys like Tkachuk, Homlstrom, LUCIC doesnt have much talent but still manage to score because they use their body to place themself on the right spot. Gui is trying to be to cute with the puck. I said it and will say it again, he'll be more succesful playing with his body(physical) than his hands (skills).
