Like it or not, Latendresse is one of our most interesting prospect. He has the size and skill package that gives him the potential to score plenty of goals in the NHL. He is not overrated. Truth is that at the position he was drafted, he might end up being a steal.
Like it or not he is probably the most over-raited prospect we have by the fans on here atleast, the way some people expect this guy just to walk right on the roster is crazy.

Probably half of the roster predictions on this board featured him and some of them even had him on the 1st or 2nd line. He is a wait and see project, he has another year of jr (being benched at the wjc should insure that) and probably a couple years of minor pro ahead of him who knows maybe he could be great, if he works his butt off, but there is as good of a chance that he could be a bust.

Thats how the NHL draft works its risky business that sometimes pays off and sometimes doesnt, its way to early though to say what he is going to be.
