Wow there are some latendresse hater here !

He has worked on his skating last summer and it shows !
He's not a pretty skater but he's certainly not slow. IMO his skating is very comparable to Corey Perry or Ryane Clowe.
He still could drop 5 to 10 pounds and it would help him. IMHO is skating while could still need improvement is not a concern for him anymore.

IMO Latendresse will slowly improve every year until he's a fulltime 2nd liner. He will never become a true power forward (he doesnt fight much) but I could see him having a career similar to Knuble.

I loved the pick in 2005.
Last year I was very dissapointed with his skating / work ethic and wanted him out.
This year he's lightout faster than he was last year and want him to stay with us for a very longtime. He seems to have matured quite well and hopefully it can continue this summer. This guy has some serious potential !
