Olivier Latendresse thinks he can make the team next year

I saw this on RDS.http://www.rds.ca/hockey/chroniques/253396.html
Somebody is getting way ahead of themselves here (probably RDS) I really doubt that the ECHL is anywhere near as good as the AHL and I really don't think its realistic for anyone to make the ECHL-->NHL jump. Though he did have a good season and will probably play next year in the AHL I really don't see him as a potential NHL player. I get the feeling that when he does not make the team and gets pushed far down the depth chart that Gui's attitude might suffer a bit....

"J'ai autant de chance qu'un autre de causer une surprise" there's a difference between this sentence and your thread tittle.

Good for him. Wish him the best of luck.

Nice to see people try to squash a guy's intentions on the interwebz.

And I say the Habs should have drafted me last year. Still isn't too late...to think I tanked the last two seasons just so I can be low enough for them to get me.

I've never watched the ECHL, but David Desharnais finished with 106 pts in 68 games as a 20 year old straight out of the Q. Is that good?

He lead the league by 15 points (2nd place guy is 27yrs old). How good is the ECHL and does he have a shot at playing with the habs one day? I know he's a small bugger, but what are his ups/downs?

People here have obviously never seen him play. He obviously won't make the team but he is a sorely underrated player for reasons unknown (well size for one thing). I saw him through his midget and junior years, he has the ability to find a niche in the NHL. Not now but say a year or two he could be making some noise.

A loose translation. I tried translating it word-for-word, but some stuff just doesn't come out the same, so I used (what I believe to be is) English terminology in some cases. I know we're not allowed to post full articles, but it's a translation; if it's against the rules, I'll try and paraphrase it.

Olivier Latendresse dreams once more

Olivier Latendresse's season and career took a new direction on February 18 when he joined the Cincinnati Cyclones in the ECHL. It was there where his dream to play in the NHL once again became the first of his priorities.

After helping the Cyclones last weekend win the Stanley Cup of the ECHL, the Kelly Cup, the 22-year-old feverishly began preparing for the Canadiens' training camp at the end of summer.

He promises to do everything to impress Guy Carbonneau and his colleagues at the Canadiens' camp; but rare are the players who made the jump directly from the ECHL to the NHL and he knows it. "I have the same chance as everyone else to cause a surprise. People don't know the ECHL, which offers a calibre (re: 'difficulty') very close to the AHL."

For the first time in six years, he will find himself on the same team as his younger brother Guillaume. The two brothers always wore the same colors (team-wise) before Olivier joined Val d'Or in 2002-03 where he had a brilliant junior career and his brother became one of the super-stars of the Drummondville Voltigeurs one year later. "To play with my brother, in Montreal on top of it; it's a dream from my childhood that's becoming reality."

Supported by several Québécois, Latendresse helped the Cyclones dispose of the Las Vegas Wranglers in six games. His season debut with the Coyotes organization could not predict such a good ending to the season.

Former star of the Val d'Or Foreurs signed a contract as an unrestricted free agent with the Phoenix Coyotes in 2004, but with Wayne Gretzky's team, he never really knew where he was going. He simply was a come-and-go player between San Antonio in the AHL and Phoenix in the ECHL. He even spent some time in the CHL. It was at this moment when he asked his agent, Pat Brison, to help him rebound his career.

The center, since then turned winger, saw his dream of playing in the NHL drifting away without him ever having a true opportunity to make it. "I asked myself what I did wrong, but in the end, it wasn't me. It was just that nobody gave me a chance."

With Cincinnati, he re-discovered himself when given a chance to play offensively, something the Coyotes organization did not let him do, trying to make him into a defensive player. "The Cyclones used me at the point on the powerplay and on the two first lines. They told me they'd bump me down (to lower lines) if I didn't do my job. They never got a chance to do that."

In 22 playoff games, if scored 7 times and recorded 12 assists. During the regular season, he played 24 games with the Cyclones, totalling 7 goals and 28 assists.

yeap, it's rock solid. Did you pickup the latest Revolver magazine with Tool on the cover ? There's a bunch of interviews in it. Justin also confirmed the Fibonacci hypothesis for the song Lateralus.

That's what I thought. How long is this "loan" for? Let's say he somehow made the team out of camp and was doing decent on the Habs. Could the Coyotees just come in and say "Loan's up. Thanks for fine tuning our prospect. Here, you can have Urquart back. *snicker* "

Nah, I don't really get many magazines other than a years subscription to Modern Drummer.

I hate waiting the mandatory 4-6 years between albums. I need more Tool.

This may be minconstrued haha.

And as for Olivier, good for him for being motivated. Better then coming out and saying "no my chances are slim for the team since I only play in the ECHL". Good luck to him.
