We saw Lats not getting a point in 13 games, now look at him. Carbonneau is turning out to be a great coach with patience.
I was one of the few that didnt believe the style comparisons between Perezhogin and Afinogenov, but I watched the Buffalo/Pittsburgh game friday evening and damn!! they sure look alike now... the biggest difference I would say is experience... If you look at Afinogenov, he knows now when to control the puck or not to, while Perezoghin seems to control the puck too much some times (waiting too look to pass or shoot the puck)... like you said, patience, IT WILL pay off in a near future...
