Well I don't agree with that, I think that Greening is every bit as good as Latendresse & while Ladentresse may be slightly better offensively I would argue that Greening is much better defensively, not to mention much faster. Latendresse may have a better shot but overall I think Greening is the better two way hockey player. I also think that the 1st line LW job is Silfverberg's job to lose who IMO is a better goal scorer & better defensively than Latendresse.

Greening had 37 pts in his first full yr in the NHL, I expect him to be a lot better next season. Latendresse best season was 40 pts for Minny & Montreal. Latendresse will have to stay healthy all yr, I like his size & wanted to draft him but his health & compete level concerns me. However, if Foligno is traded then I could see Latendresse playing on that 2nd line.
