He doesnt have the mean streak to become a power forward??

Look, hes played a handful of games in the NHL as a rookie, first games with MEN. Remember when Komisarek played his first few games?? There is a huge transition period that must take place before a player feels totally comfortable in his new surroundings. He is very physically strong don't worry about that. Don't say hitting is not a part of his natural game and he doesnt have a mean streak because you'll regret it maybe not now.. maybe not in a few months, but FOR SURE in a few years IMO.
Latendresse is not ready for the NHL.. its obvious... he may become a power forward but right he belong in the junior! No way he is too good for junior.. he has been inconsistent in junior!

Phaneuf was ready to hit the NHL.. the same goes to Crosby, Carter, Richards, Bergeron & cie

Latendresse is not.. neither was Joe Thornton in 1997! But Thorton was a phenom.. still, his bad first year could have burn him...

YESTERDAY when the fourth line was in trouble with rivet and souray in the defensive zone for nearly 20 second, i didn't see latendresse in the camera...

He looks like he is avoiding the puck to be sure its not his fault... But by doing that he put his team on trouble...

againt Ottawa, the goal were souray looks bad shows the samething....
