You know I'd love for Carbo to play Latendresse on the 4th line for a bit. Basically tell him that what they want from him is to hit and be physical and not worry so much about scoring goals (remove pressure on the kid's shoulders). With Lapierre and Begin he'll get a chance to learn how to play big and once he has gotten that down (say after 10-15 games) then bring him up to 3rd line and tell him to keep playing big. That's how he'll score goals in the long run.

If we look at several of the power forwards, they spent a considerable amount of time playing on checking line duties. I see that Latendresse hasn't done that as a detriment on learning his role.
