What I don't get is this....

....Latendresse for two years played just as lazy as Sergie did, played worse defensivly, worse offensivly and got a free ride from media and fans with the "he's learning, he's only 19, 20, 21" excuse.

But why does Sergei...who is 21, has barely played 90 nhl games continue to be called out by fans and media whom are asking for his head.

I don't understand this double-standard.

I'm not defending Sergie's play because it hasn't been spectacular, but he still is a kid who is learning to play the game. Why can we show the patience for one prospect, but not the other?

Please I really want to hear the explanation for this?
