Think Bertuzzi, Thornton, Leclair...although for every guy like that we have Isbister's and Brendl's, but I like how Latendresse has played for most of this year and am very weary of counting him out so early in his career.
Yes, while that being true, you have to remember that development is not linear, Latendresse may be playing well now, but doesn't mean he'll keep developing at the same pace, for all we know he can hit is peak this year.

As of right now I'd take Ladd.
