I liked him with Koivu and Tanguay except he was trying too hard to set them up instead of shooting himself, also going to the net more. These are subtle adjustments that are needed, not exactly earth shattering.
I see a lot of finishing checks than hits to actually separate the puck from the puck carrier. And you can give checks without being mean. Clearly, the kid is not stupid, he's been ask to hit, he does it. Like some fighters who are ask to fight, but don't like it.....we know one here.....But I'm pretty certain that if Latendresse was asked to be a dominant factor offensively, he would choose that over hitting any day of the week. And when I also think of somebody who is mean, it could also actually mean that whenever there's a scrap in front of the goalie, you can actually look in the guy's eyes you're "scrapping" with.....
