I don't see it as a big deal, just a young guy needing to be coached a bit. I look at guys like Franzen, Shanahan, Leclair etc, Lats has as much skill and them and they also struggled to find their game for a few years, the right balance between power and skill plus playing against big mobile NHL d-men.
The only time Lats played like a power forward was in a few games during his first two training camps.

He is not and never will be a powerforward. It's two years and change and he hasn't manifested any power forward tendencies.

You'll be an old disappointed man if you think Lats will develop into a power forward.
