How is this helping Perezhogin develop? He's still a young player as well. He's got more than 8 games of NHL experience. It seems like he wasn't chosen because he doesn't have a politically correct surname.
Well you can think that if you want. I think the real reason (sorry, it ain't dramatic) is that Perez would bring to the line a lot of the same things Sammy would. He's a perimeter player as well. Lats brings a crash and bang aspect that Carbo wanted to try out. There's nothing wrong in experimenting early in the season.
