Latendresse has plenty of skill out there to be a productive second liner in the league, but despite that I feel like we should not retain him.

So why do I feel this way? It mainly has to deal with the kind of player Latendresse is, that being a very puck minded individual who seems one mindedly concerned with filling the net. It is no secret we are building a two-way puck possession team and although I feel like Latendresse is an asset with the puck on his stick, I feel he doesn't fit the style of play MacLean is molding this team for.

If we retain him I will gladly welcome him onto the Senators but I feel like if we could find a different player with a better complimentary skillset to the team's system, even if less talented, we could have a better team as a whole.
