Kostystin is probably the player on the bulldogs that is most deserving of a roster spot next year, played some pro games now so knows what its like playing against men, however having 3 in the lineup who were rooks lastyear doesnt make it easier for us to adopt another one this year.

Anyway to call him our most overrated prospect a crap statement, if anyone takes that cake its Lats for sure.

Calling Kostitsyn most overrated is not a crap statement, clearly you have some problem with Latendresse. I'm a big fan of both and could easily say both are overrated at this point. I have no problem with someone saying either is overrated, its' not a crap statement for either one. Both have a lot of natural skills but both have had problems in their games. IMO both are very improtant players for the future of the organization. We really need both these guys to be the real deal. Latendresse if he can get his skating, mobility and foot speed up to par then we should have a decent PF and Kostitsyn if he can pull it all together, we might finally have a superstar or close to one. We haven't had either one of these types in a long time, and there's as good a chance they won't reach their potential as there is they will reach. So for Hab fans, we should all be hoping they find a way to step it up over the next few years.
