I haven't been very impressed with Guillaume Latendresse and I'd be very surprised if he makes the team.
I like Perezhogin but he is infuriating because he hasn't put it all together yet. Forwards I can see competing to make the team this year: Maxim Lapierre, Andrei Kostitsyn, Jonathan Ferland, Mikhail Grabovski. I think Perezhogin is probably ahead of all of these players, and Latendresse behind most of them.
Lats was the 2nd star last night, scored one of our only goals, and was one of our more physical players. What didn't impress you about him?
I doubt we will find on our roster in three years Higgins, A.Kost., Latendresse and Perezhogin...... on of them won't be there and I feel it will either be A.K. or Perezhogin.......... considering is value and having Grabovski and S.K. in the pipeline, I feel Perezhogin will be the one traded. Let's hope we coud get a good D or C player of the same age for him.
I agree...he's the more "expandible" young player being that he remains an attractive prospect outside of montréal...thus having a bit of value. I think he'll be an awesome player sooner or later so the question would be...who'll be better, AK or Perez? Hard one.
