There were times Lats was unstoppable offensively due to sheer size. While Coyle is strong, he is not as heavy as Lats. 230-240 is more than what I see Coyle ending up..

ANyways, your question was kind of player...and, yes, I think Coyle is going to be a PF type player in that he'll screen goalies, get tip ins/rebound goals near the crease, and draw penalties.
