What does it matter if Lats can't handle top 2 lines duty?
Forget he was ever drafted for that. He's unable to do it so how about stopping to force trying him here? He can be a good bottom 6 guy. He doesn't cost much either.
For example, a guy like Chipchura is a complete flop for a first rounder. He's a 4th liner center.
Does it really matter he was a first rounder now? No, just use him as a 4th line center the rank he was drafted at. Same thing for Lats, he's not what we thought he'd become. So how about simply using him for the role he's suited for?
If he ever plays himself out of the team, no regrets. At least, he had time to prove himself.
That aside, I'm willing to be more patient with a guy like Pacioretty. His skillset is more complete.
