Latendresse isn't 5'9 185 pds, he wouldn't have been tossed like a rag doll....let's be honest here. If it was Koivu, I could understand cuz he's coming off a major injury, and it would just have been very disrespectful. Latendresse is trying to win a spot and he knows what he has to do, imo he can be applauded for what he did last night. As far as the penalty goes, Boarding is when a player is violentely shoved into the boards (usually there has to be a decent amount of space between the player and the boards), Dimaio was practicly pressed up against the boards. If he wasn't a midget he would have shaked it off.
