Is how I see the top 6ish from here onwards.
Regardless, Lats is doing fine for the role he was brought in here to do. Be a secondary scorer to complement the 2nd line. On a top line with Turris as the center, Lats is gonna struggle like crazy. Even with Smith.
With Spezza gone not only does it add to Turris' workload but also with Michalek gone it makes Lats the go-to scorer and that ain't gun work at all especially with lack of creativity from his center(s).
I think he should be given another contract, at least from my perspective. Inside managment and the dressing room is another issue of course.
He is the type of player a team like Ottawa could use, big, goes to the crease and has the hands to do damage offensively.
