wow that is a great vid.....u can see in his strides, he is not forcing himself like last year and looks extremly faster. I thought he was gonna be a liability on the 3rd line but im all for him proving me wrong.

I don't know, I get the feeling Lats will be one of the guys that "pleasantly surprises" people this season. The past few seasons, he was still a young kid soaking up the experience but still produced ok. He's bound to break-out, especially if he was as dedicated as reported during the off season. The team's depth should help take some pressure off him as well (or light a fire under his ass so he doesn't lose his spot).

I like when he's skating full tride. Looks much faster then last season. But early in the vid when they just skate away I still think I his knees are bent inwards to much. Like he said it's going to take a while to change the stride but looking quite good so far.

We still need to see him in game with a puck. But no one can question this guy's attitude and comitment.

Nice video. He looks quicker and that's a good thing. With Latendresse, his top speed was decent. It was getting up to speed that was the problem. It seems he's worked hard on his foot speed.

Nice devotion from the kid... the mark of a true pro.

The only word that can describe this is "Calvaire".

He's faster than Markov!

Even if some of the Habs were taking it easy, being ranked that high on a team with the footspeed of the Habs

We know Lats can shoot, hit, even pass. But a Lats who can do all that AND SKATE could easily become a very good player.

Latendresse looks great. Really focused, intense and I'd swear he even looked fast. This is his year to breakout. He's going to play with at least one and hopefully two genuinely talented offensive linemates.

Georges was 270 when he was playing for Phoenix ...

Livingston said about Higgs and Komisarek , that they are MACHINE . They have a very serious summer training schedule .

Passchendaele will never shut up about the Habs. We could win the Cup for ten years straight and he'd still find ways to tell us why our players suck and how overrated we are. Dude's obsessed.

Can't you see? That's not the Latendresse we know! Can't wait to see how it's gonna translate in game situations.

Most used phrase of the 2008/2009 Season:

"Well, yeah, the past two seasons I did criticize Latendresse, but he has proved me wrong"

and

"Yeah, his stride is better, his speed is better, his pivot is better, hes hitting without losing positioning, his defence is better, and hes looking to score more goals than he has in the past two seasons, but Lats..."

oh, and likely

"GOD DAMNIT WHY IS BRISEBOIS ON THE ICE FOR **** SAKES I HATE HIM GOD DAMNIT GAINEY THIS IS WHY WE'LL NEVER WIN THE CUP BECAUSE YOU WANT TO **** BRISEBOIS IN THE ASS SO BAD AND SAME TO CARBO I HATE YOU BOTH ARRRRGH!"

Can't forget that one...
