I personally haven't been impressed with Lats but it's only two games and he's very young. In the two games he has shown good strength but my concern is his foot speed and acceleration. It's really too bad he can't play in the AHL this year, it would be a great option if things were not going well after a couple weeks, to send him down for a spell. It will be interesting to see how Gainey/Carbo handle him, my feelings are mixed, on one hand I love the fact that he's on the team, big fan of his, on the other I think all prospects should go through the AHL route. Markov, Komisarek, Ryder, Higgins, Pleks, Perezhogin, Murray, all our young players have done so, have paid their dues in the AHL.

I think he will get better once he gets comfortable out there, but I will continue to worry about his speed until he shows me different.
