Well Jean-Charles has a freakin point. DeFoy wants Latendresse to be meaner and tougher and use his body...the GUY NEVER DID IT! He was a lot bigger than most guys in the Q and even then, wasn't using his body so much, now he has to do it on bigger guys.

Latendresse needs to play on an offensive line and scores. That's why they got him. They didn't draft him so he could play the role of a 3rd and 4th liner. But for that to happen, he needs to be in an offensive line, needs to stay close to the net, needs to pick up the rebounds and needs to play a role in the powerplay. That's what Latendresse is all about.

Then if you try him extensively and it doesn't work, then you can either trade him or explain to the guy that he can't be succesful as a sniper and be a 3rd liner who can score from time to time.

But Latendresse becoming meaner makes as much sense as Higgins having better hands...
