It's not like we had the next coming of Richard. I don't understand how people can say this.
Direct jump to NHL: Can ruin a player.
Spend some time in the AHL: Can only help a player.

Safe bet: AHL. All. The. Time.

I would bet that some AHL time for Latendresse would've allowed him to mature amongst seasoned professionals and prepared him to cope with MTL's pressure, as well as giving him all the needed attention and tools from the coaching staff that is in place to help a player work on his shortcomings; essentially grooming him for the NHL team.
