Me neither. I think it's counter-backlash to the perception he's there because he's French, he's a media darling, and is on the team because of it. It seems people resent that, but when you think about it, that attitude is no better than the other.

What I don't get is how people don't realize how grave an insult to Carbonneau and Gainey this is. Those two are not the types to bow to media pressure. They would not have kept Latendresse unless they had a plan.

Radulov is flashy and will get more attention because of it, not to mention he's a year older. But Latendresse has put up very comparable numbers in the Q at the same age. The style is so different though it's like apples and oranges.
