So where were all of you guys in October? It's very easy to say that Lucic is going/is better now, that he's playing on the first line and Latendresse is in the press box. I love all of the Johnny come latelies going around saying "it's not even close" and "it's quite easy for me". No kidding? If you were the guys in October saying that, I'd tip my hat and say good call, the Bruins have a hell of a player and good for them. But to come here now, does nothing.

Good find man, There's no doubt that Lucic is by far the better player, but some habs even with the situation now will try to convince you otherwise.

oh and I'm a habs fan.

Latendresse was so overhyped by the Montreal media that people believed it. If Lats ever does get a regular spot in the nhl, he'll just keep bouncing around lines like Steve Bernier, but even Steve Bernier is better than Guillaume.

Lucic

Latendresse is no way close to being a power forward.He hits the boards more then anything else when he gives a body check.Should go spend the year in Hamilton

Question...do you guys think that ruined Lats by rushing him to the NHL? He did have the hype but some of it was justified.

Wonder if he took the AHL route 1st how he would be now.

Is it too late?

I was only aware of this poll yesterday. But for what it's worth I would have still picked Lucic, and I like the Habs.

The only reason latendresse is in the NHL is because he's french.

Lucic is a top player on the top team in the East.

Right now Latendresse is playing like crap. I've defended him in the past, but he quite simply hasn't learned a thing in his first 2.25 years in the NHL. Lucic on the other hand is playing very well for a sophmore and his game has really improved since last season. Lucic is doing everything better than Latendresse is doing. I can't think of one single aspect of the game where Latendresse is outplaying him.

I didn't vote until now, since I was hoping Lats skating might have improved due to his training regiment this past summer and I was seeing how that would shake out, but you have to go with Lucic.

I don't think it's too late, but by bringing him in so young, it's eliminated the possiblity of sending to the AHL to work on his game. I still think he can be a decent player, but he's got to work as if he's going to be spending time in the press box. With a better work etchic, he might become a regular player again.

I guess he's not better after all.

well that didn't come back to bite you, latendresse is being more useful though, sitting in the stands and giving more ice time to better players
