One thing that really stuck out to me is how well Pax and Lapierre fit together. Pax pretty much has Lats' size, at least he was easily playing a comparable physical role, but his speed is a huge asset as he can keep up with Lapierre where Latendresse simply can't. Latendresse has better hands but Lapierre can't make a decent pass anyway, so again I found Pax the better fit. I could see those two playing together for years. With the right RW, they could be a line that can play against anyone.
So do you think Patches - Lapy - Lats is good?
