Yes he has improved greatly this season, but he still has ways to go before being a physical presence. Playing physical doesn't mean having size and throwing your body around.
Before Latendresse went down with an injury, he was one of the most physical players on the team, but that isn't saying much. He was playing well and putting the puck in the net when he got the chances. He didn't suck at finishing. He start to know his role and went out there and threw hits. He even went to the front of the net from time to time.

I think this upcoming season, if he's healthy, he should be able to crack 20 goals.
