He's a relentless forechecker and he clearly has some skills and can make things happen offensively. I think he can use those tools better on the flank than up the middle.
I wouldn't mind giving Latta a shot at making the roster as the #4 center. He's a solid all-around player with lots of jam, and we could use someone like that, especially if Tootoo walks.
granted, this is assuming he signs a multi year deal.....but Staal replacing fisher (cap wise) is an obvious bump up. I know we have a tpn of pkers, but having a threat like Staal on the pk would be huge.
