When has Lats ever put on a strong/dominating performance (over say 5 consecutive games) even when he's played on the top 2 lines.

C'mon, if you were offered Lucic for Lats straight-up, you wouldn't flinch (smile excluded).

A more genuine comparison: Lucic vs Pacioretty (in say 3-5 years).
huh? Lucic has star potential? He's leetching off Savard and is still nowhere close to a point per game.
