I just don't get the hype. I really honestly don't. Yes he's playing well, but he's not playing 40 goal scorer powerforward superstar well. He's not even playing 25 goal scorer well. To me he just looks like any other grinder with slightly better hands.

If we have to be afraid to move a player for a nessecity for our team because of a backlash, then this organization is going nowhere.

If Dallas fans could forgive about Jarome Iginla being traded, then I don't see why we can't do the same for Latendresse.

This Latendresse thing is getting annoying, I feel like it's a burden on the team and the fan base, the whole situation would be so much more easier if he were gone so people can stop b****ing and stop overhyping!


Latendresse reminds of Steve Bernier, everyone is hoping for something that won't come.
First off, yea some people here talk about trading Higgins, others the Kost broz, some even Plek. But don't act like nobody even mentioned trading Lats, just look at you, you seem to support the idea.
So there are people like you as well, that are willing to let him go.
There are people that are for or against trading X or Y player.
Nothing new here, can't expect everyone to agree with everything.

Second, yes Lats is not playing as a 40GS PF Superstar, nor was he ever supposed to be that. Agreed, he's not even performing as a 25GS either, but if you want to say that, you can say nobody other than Tanguay and Koivu is playing like it.


If Latendresse can fetch us a similar return to a Nieuwendyk that won the Conn Smythe and still put up 30+..35+..25+..20+ Goals in all but 2season with the Stars, then yea I'm all for that trade.
Iginla was a high pick prospect. Latendresse is in his 3rd Season, and has not yet have the chance of playing regularly on a top line.
This guy has been moving from 4th to 2nd to 1st to 3rd to scratched to 4th to 3rd...since his first NHL Game. How can a player be consistent when he's moved that much?..I don't feel we're doing much to get the most out of him.

I don't think Lats can fetch us a big player, if he can, then I'm all ears for a trade. He's far from being untouchable.

i would keep him for 1 or 2 years so he can prove he deserves to be on the team
if he keeps floating like the last 3 years, trade his ass

I know it wasn't clear, but what I implied was, so long as Latendresse can fetch us our missing piece on D, I would not trade him and I do not know why people would oppose this option, which is why I gave justification in that post.

In fact I wouldn't trade anyone on our team right now unless it were for a 4th d-man. Sorry for the ambiguity, but that's what I meant, although not clearly seen.

you just don't trade 21 year old players, be it skost or gui, unless someone seriously overpays. the organization spent a lot of time and money on prospects like them, you want a reward, not just some random 4th dman or a 2 round pick.
they might be worth that on the open market, but they are more valuable to the organization. If you like it or not.

Not the same style of player or same situation, no one denied his talent, he was just a cancer to the team, also I'd like to add, what has he done since Morrow has been injured? 1 point in 5 games? I rest my case.

Actually a huge number of people said he sucked.

The whole Dallas team is sucking at the moment, so..

Latendresse doesn't really fit with the team right now and I don't see him as a fit for the future either.

Do we want to keep him on the 4th line? I don't think so. Do we want to trade him right now? I don't think so.

I think that Kyle Chipchura is a more likely candidate to leave before the trade deadline in a package deal. He doesn't have his place on the team and I don't really see a place for him in a near future. He is NHL ready IMO and he deserves to play.

That said, if there was a solid offer for Lats (let's say for a guy with the same upside), I would really think about it if the player coming back is a better fit on our team.

well those people should watch hockey, because his vision is clearly above average, not elite, but very good regardless.

He needed a guy like Morrow to tough it for him in order to succeed, they have perfect chemistry, Morrow clearly gives Ribs time to move and decide which is why he was so effected.

How he even lasted this long on the Habs is beyond me. Just goes to show you that you can very little talent, but you can still assure yourself of a job if you have the right last name.

Hands don't count for much if you have average-below average skating ability. He has the lateral movement and mobility of a 500 pounder.

You do know we have 10 UFA next season right?...6 of which are Forwards. On top of that we have 4 Forwards that will be RFAs.

So..how can you actually say you don't think there's room for either Lats or Chipper in the near future??..
Lang will be gone next year, so Chipper will be in im convinced. Begin will be out, Dandenault also. Possibly one of Kovalev/Tanguay/Koivu as well and if Plekanec/Higgins sign for more than expected, maybe 2 of our 3 Big names will have to go.

So, on the contrary, there might be more than enough room for Lats and Chipper next year.

Latendresse would have had more points than Malone had he played with Crosby and Malkin.

talk about a lack of respect by carbonneau yesterday when he used d'agostini on the PP. I am not a Latendresse lover, but i think he deserve a shot way before the rookie who has not played a single game yet.

but yes, i would trade latendresse for a good young defenseman.

I'm not a huge Latendresse fan but I would rather the organization be patient with him.

The only possible spot for Chipchura next season IMO is the 4th line C. There's already Lapierre (C) and Laraque (RW) on the 4th line. Where do you see Chipchura? LW?

Koivu (he'll retire as a Hab)
Tanguay (I can't see how he would not be re-signed)
Higgins
AKostitsyn
Plekanec
SKostitsyn
Pacioretty

That's already 7 players without Kovalev and Latendresse. We can assume that Carbo will continue to roll three offensive lines. Where's the place for Chipchura?

And I didn't say that Lats doesn't have a place in this team. He's just not a good fit.

You have evidence of this?

I thought he was still on his entry level deal.
