Yeah, he's good. But seriously, the Quebec media need to open up their eyes and realize that Lats is not going to be the next Lafleur. At least, I don't think so.
This is the issue.

The team has let Latendresse make his mistakes in the NHL as a 19 year old (while sucking) while there were more skilled players who were biting at the bit in the AHL. Add to that the insane line changes and demotions the only argument that is left besides Latendresse’s nationality is that “His development would have been stunted in juniors”
