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?

I don't know what you're talking about. Lats got plenty of bashing and benching and playing on 4th lines.
To say Lats had it easier during his 'slump' is just wrong, IMO.
