I still like him

Somehow I'm confident Martin will teach him how to put his ass in front of the net and everything will work afterward.

Even if the idea is to not make it political, how the hell can it not be? In a day where there's this whole debate about Quebecers, you really think that they'll trade him for close to nothing (which has to be his value) unless if it's for another quebecer....

Wow! Way to go Habs organization! Another prospect that wasn't developped properly and now we want to kick him out! Habs screw up and then trade away any potential this team might have. To top it all off, Lats is a good Québec boy and damn it we need those good Québec boys because the Russians suck!

John Leclair all over again...

Bertuzzi all over again...

Even if Lats ends up being only 75% of these guys, Gainey should be patient with him. After 3 seasons, he has pretty much the sames stats than those guys had...

Patience people!

This rumor was leaked only to light a fire under his ass.

He could also become 25% of these guys and become the next Brad Isbister or Landon Wilson...

I don't really want to see him traded for nothing, but if we can get something valuable, alone or in a package, then I'm all for it !

Lapierre and MaxPac have not been worse than the indifferent play of Lats. Lats problem is that he won't do what he has to do to create a role for himself. JM has basically said it outright and still Lats doesn't do what he has to do to succeed: go to the net and park his huge butt in front of the goalie. if it's good enough for Holmstrom it should be for Lats. He needs to work alot harder than he has to date to move up the chart here. With this coach you do not have any acquired rights: clean slate for everybody.

Could has well but right now it's not like he hurts the team or is a waste of cap space. AND you'll get nothing for him right now so...

I'd say this just falls in with the new "Bob brought up the kids too soon" smear going on.

Nevermind the fact that everyone and their brother was shouting "play the kids," the four guys their using for reference are all players that take time to develop.

Gui and Patches are in the power forward mold. These guys don't dominate overnight.

Price is a goalie. These guys don't dominate overnight.

Sergei is a 7th round pick. These guys don't dominate overnight. Markov didn't crack the lineup until he was 23, but it still took him a couple years of pro seasoning to become the steal that he is.

Funny that it takes an american to explain common sense about hockey to know it all canadian Canadiens fans...

Marinaro to me is just an English version of what we see on RDS/TSN. Half the time you dont know WTF is real or what the hell is fake.. apparently he has TONS of sources..

Either way, its stupid if we give up on Gui so easily... just like if we give up on AKOS or give up on Pacioretty or even Price.

Let these kids freaking mature for god sakes before we trade them away..

Tsn tends to get things right pretty much 99% of the time. RDS gets things right about 90% of the time.

Patches to me has a better concept and all around game than that of Latendresse. Lats in one dimensional and slow as molasses too, his upside is over blown by the media. He wasn't a lights out scorer in Junior, he was a bench warmer in the WJC and he was a great Pre-Season player his first 2 camps...other than that he has been pretty stale.

Patches will be a solid 2nd line player, with a good two way game I believe. He may have only played in Hamilton for a half season, but it is still half a season more than Lats and his experience in the NCAA helped as well as he as playing against older players there too.

I agree in goalies, they do take time to develop. Just look at Fleury as case A.

In regards to Markov making it at 23, he was a Dman a player that usually even takes longer to develop than a goalie.

For Sergei, Montreal obviously saw he needed time and development still...Sergei didn't see that and it is his problem, not Montreal's for trying to make him better. Carbo himself said last year Sergei is trying to get away with laziness and other things vets may try to do as they can't be sent down because of waiver issues and so on. He is just plain laxy.

As much as people want him to be more aggressive, he is still the best hitter on the team.

This is Montreal. How many play the kids that aren't ready until they develop can we handle? By the way, not dominating overnight, also has to mean developing properly. And since nobody is exceptional in that list, they would have had to go through the usualy developement steps. If they then become exceptional, well now you can have them rushed in a little bit more. Until then, what's the point really.

Also the "play the kids" you heard meant "play the kids to see if they're ready. If they are not send them back"......

In the end, young kids that are in the NHL, if you look real closely, while they don't dominate, they are already pretty good. Or they are not but it doesn't matter 'cause they are either in a real bad team or in a hockey city who doesn't have the pressure than we have.
