All that being said I think it's wrong to rashly discard the potential "fight" between Perez and other prospects inlcuding Lats. It's not a case of overrating Lats as much as a case of not overrating Perez. I'm a patient guy when it comes to player development. But there comes one point where you have to take a decision. There comes a point where giving extra chances to a prospect means you are is holding back other prospects. Right now perez is letting a chance slip though his hands.

Some questions we have to ask our selfs.....
Does the presence or absence of prospect A on this team make any significant difference in the team's performance?
Is prospect A better then prospect B?
Who out of prospect A or B has better upside?
Who out of prospect A or B brings what the team is lacking?
What can you get for prospect A or B?
Would prospect B develop faster in the NHL or in the AHL or Juniors.
There are tons of more questions to ask....It's a complicated matter and the answers will varry from person to person.
Very true. (And essentially captures my feelings on the subject too). But the more urgent question I have is:
What is the spherical-looking object on the island (above the beer)? Koivu's eyeball?????
