I think Lats is a shooter more than a passer -- but he can do both, so when he's paired up with Lapierre (shoot, shoot, shoot) he does tend to pass more. Lats has a good shot -- probably better than Higgins', and he seems to bury it more often.

I wouldn't use Lats on LW and Higgins on RW -- they tried it once last year with Koivu at C and it didn't work too well. Lats was a RWer in junior, he should be at RW if that line materializes.
