Sometimes I think people see what they want to in order to prove their point.

No Lats is not Pierre Dagenais, they don't play the same style, one is a grinder with average hands the other was a slow skating sniper.

Secondly, if Lats was playing well, he would be playing on higher lines period! Carbonneau has babied him for three years and really doubt he would be demoted if he were playing well, the reality is that he looks like any other grinder we have on our team, Lappiere, Laraque, Dandenault, Begin and Kostopoulos all work as hard and as well as Latendresse along the board.

You're getting ridiculous. How does telling somebody to shut their mouth defend your teammate?

Carbonneau has never babied Lats, if anything he's been quick on the trigger as sooin as he has a bad game. SKost did basically nothing the last 6 weeks last year and he still played with Koivu and Higgins. Lats had a couple of so so games this year after Higgins came back and next thing you know he is back with Kostopoulos/Lang/Lapierre/Begin etc.

The huge difference from those players to Lats is hands. He's scored 16 goals in each of the last 2 years playing 3rd and 4th lines. Those 5 guys have combined for 25 goals in 06-07 and 30 goals in 07-08.
