In not sure for what interest is Latendresse playing with D'Agostini and Maxwell???
While we know that DAG and MAX are gonna be back to junior pretty soon, we don't give too much chances to Lats to perform very well...
Why is it that Carbo doesn't split some line to see if his kids can keep up with proven NHLer???
How can he show himself now with 2 18 y/o???
Well... good point, but I think that if Lats wants to make a place for himself inthe lineup he has to prove he can outdo a player in the lineup.
Right now he clearly isn't outdoing anyone on the top 3 lines ( Johnson, Plekanec, Ribeiro etc.. have all outworked him so far ) so if he's planning on playing with players with limited abilities,
it's his time to shine, he's playing with '' sub NHL '' players on a line that will probably get around 15 minutes for the game. If he puts on a show, and shows he can keep up with intensity, I have no doubt the Habs will make him a spot.
But Lats has no choice, he has to show a clear dominant impact to make this lineup.
So far he's played better than many of the young guns ( Grabovsky, Chipchura, Urquhart ) ,
but he's getting desperatly outworked by guys like D'agostini ( Chris Higgins Jr ), Sergei Kostitsyn ( Kovalev Jr. ) and Maxim Lapierre ( Tucker Jr )
So the ball is in his corner ! Only clear domination will prevail
My prediction right now...there will be a ******** of penalties, mostly called against us and people on here will flip out
The Bruins took something like 13 penalties agaist the Devils and Lewis has been watching tapes and has gone over all of the calls with the Bruins and wants them to cut down of the hooking..hopefully they will take 5 at max.
By the way, for people who live in the Ottawa region, they're playing the game at Don Cherry`s. I'm going there with Shabutie at 7:15.
Are you sure? I just called them and they said they werent sure...i can't see how they would be allowed to show the game but La Cage Au Sports cant because of blackout rules...if there is indeed blackout rules you would think they would not allow a game in Ottawa over a game in Gatineau
I am so pumped for tonight's game(preseason or not). I have not posted since that dark tuesday when Stillman put a knife in my back. Its good to see all of you die hards still here. IT is going to be a great season.
