For how much longer can we stop saying that Latendresse is still young. Yeah, he is 21 but he has 3 seasons over 180 games in the nhl. Have he shown any sign of amelioration since the camp of 06-07? Very slightly if you ask me. Actually i think he played his best hockey in that camp.

At this pace, Latendresse will end the season with around 25-30 pts, again.

Latendresse is overall at pretty much everything. If he wants to play on the powerplay, he has to deserve it but he has nothing special to play on the powerplay. If he plays more physical, putting himself in front of the goaler at even strenght, then the coach will have reason to put in on PP but he is not doing that. He dumps the puck in the corner, win his battle near the board from time to time, skating around giving body checks here and there will not be enough to win pp time.
