In this morning Journal de Montréal, in a Albert Ladouceur's article, Radulov was quoted as saying that he didn't understand why Latendresse was with the Habs this year because when he was playing against him in the Q, they (him and his Remparts teammates) didn't even notice Latendresse.
Strong words for Radu who was looking real good in his NHL debut. I have to say that i don't disagree with him.........
Wow, everyone is taking a shot at the poor kid. As I've said before, I would like nothing better than to see Lats succeed. I just don't think he's ready, and that others (Laps and Kost) are and deserve a shot at proving it. But maybe Carbo and company know something we don't (i.e., that it's just a confidence issue and that suddenly the kid will blossom and catch fire like nobody's business?).
Haaa I love it.......Let the poopybums take all the loser shots they want........Lats will get the last laugh.....Let me tell you this,,,,,, after Rads gets smoked by Lats along the boards he will be picking up more then just his words off of the ice.
Sad but true. And for the guy with the comment that Radulov was sent down, well he is back up and has scored. For al his impressive training camps, Lats has not only not scored but has not even picked up a point.
Radulov takes a shot at Latendresse? Wow, I'll bet he hasn't been passing to him either. This looks to me like a full blown emergency. We must do something to preserve the good name of our favourite hockey club before we all go to hell!
(This isn't a 'shot' at you for creating the thread kobe, just enjoying getting caught up in the over-dramatics a few others have been indulging in (or overdosing on) recently).
I hope Latendresse doesn't develop a phobia of spotlights because that could cause a problem.
He might be right, but it's still very unprofessional of Radulov to say that.
And whoever is taking shots at Lats now or whining that he isn't ready and such, give the guy a freakin break. He's 10 games into his NHL career and already he's burnt out? Power forwards take YEARS to develop. You better be more patient.
We have some really ignorant "fans" here. We want everything at once and not ready to wait for the good things to come naturally. Just like with Samsonov.
I don't disagree with the guy either....juss think it was very unprofessional and very unneccesary the way he said it.
Think Lats being thrown into the NHL very unprepaired is going to screw up his career a lot.....especially in Montreal with the media being the way they are.
Guillaume doesn't look like someone who is affected by the attention of medias and what they say. He seems cool and concentrated on what he does. And I think he is ready for nhl, he is adjusting to the level, it's not that easy. He has the frame, now he needs to improve his timing, his quickness and skills.
