His name being Latendresse is both a blessing and a curse, he got preferential treatment and made the NHL at 19 because of it, but that also probably stunted his development.
I'd bet that he'd be a better player right now had he returned to play another year of junior and then paid his dues in Hamilton for a year or two.
The only thing we can hope for is that we don't make the same mistake with another young powerforward who doesn't quite look ready to play in the NHL yet. *coughs* Pacioretty *coughs*
