Of course it's their opinion. They're not reporting the consensus among hockey experts....... duh.

Lats will be a good player, but will struggle to get top line ice time. He may not be a Ryan Smyth (certainly he won't lead by Smyth's example, not that I'm sure I'd want him to, leaving Edmonton over $200,000) but he has a good makeup and lots of upside.
