When they teamed him with Lappy, I thought maybe he'll change but he still floats a good part of his shifts. He's only looking good now cause Lappy & Kosto are busting their tails every damn shift.
Anyway, you got your opinion and I have mine. This is his third year and I keep hearing the same excuses he's only 22, give him more time. Well, D'agostini is the same age and I'd give him more time. I see something with him. I see nothing with Lats.
And to get back to the question, if we had 2 Lats, I'd traded them for Lucic and I would throw in D'ago. That's what I think of Lucic.
Lapierre and Kostopoulos were nowhere near as effective when Latendresse was hurt. Just because he's not as quick as Lapierre doesn't mean he is floating, if you see nothing with Lats it is pretty obvious you just hate him and haven't watched him enough this year.
Also we do have two Latendresse's, Olivier is hurt though.
