I keep wondering how some people keep coming up with the suggestion that Latendresse didn't earn his spot. I mean, I think I was considered something of a "Latendresse-basher" for most of the time since we drafted him (although I always preferred to think of it as "Latendresse-realist")... and prior to training camp I was definitely 100% against the idea of him making the team. But... even I have to admit that he earned it with his play in camp. And furthermore, I don't have any problem whatsoever with how he is comporting himself so far in the regular season either. So if even a biased "Latendresse-basher" like me thinks he earned it fair and square, I always end up wondering what those of you who think he didn't earn it saw?
