At the beginning of the year every said trade Ovie, he is declining, and what does the guy do? He scored 32 goals. Project his season from the first few weeks of the Oates tenure and it was probably just as bad. Erat will learn the system and come back and be a decent player.
As for Latta I have seen him in person many more times then you have. He is going to be better then Matt Bradley that is a terrible comparison. They guy can hit, chirp, and does have a pretty good set of offensive skills. He is small but he isn't afraid to beat the sh** out of someone. Latta will surprise a lot of people and will be a great future addition to the Washington Capitals. Throwing a comparison to Matt Bradley is a disgrace to his game.
Adjust to what system?
The 'system' was to pinch up, and attempt to be the first on the scoreboard, and it really only worked on sandbagging teams we'd play.
Adjusting to that ought to have been easy.
