I didn't think Latendresse looked too bad on the second line. He made a few nice plays.
I'd keep this lineup for another game or two, see how things look. Samsonov definitely looked good (IMO) with Bonk and Johnson.
If Perezhogin's getting fourth line ice-time, then he needs to get spot duty on a higher line at times (put him in Latendresse's spot at times), so that he sees at least 12-13 minutes of ice-time per game. But having him on the fourth-line for a little while isn't terrible; he'll make that a legitimate line and gain some experience being the offensive catalyst of a line.
At this point, Perezhogin's able to develop anywhere you put him. He's really developing to the point where he's a versatile player that can contribute everywhere.
The skating of that fourth line was great. I thought Zhogi was effective.
