I can't see him suiting up for the Sens again. Either Stone or Hoffman would probably come into the lineup before him at this point, and even now he can't make it past Kassian. MacLean deemed him too soft for the playoffs, and it is hard to argue with a guy who just moved the team past Montreal in five games.

There's really no way that he returns now that P Mac has pretty much perma-benched him for the playoffs.

Same. I should have prefaced my little thing by saying I still like Lats, and given a healthy summer under our staff I think he could have become a more complete player.

I don't think he is perma-benched by Maclean, he is just benched. Stone or Hoffman could be inserted, and/or Latendresse could be. Kassian was playing decent and we were winning. Conacher got benched and then he became a scoring star (still while getting 11th or 12th most minutes at forward).

This team is just deep and good. That we could sit Wiercioch, Conacher and Latendresse is pretty unbelievable.

I don't think Latendresse gets resigned... but who knows? I would not really want to resign here anyways, if I am Latendresse, if I am going to be a regular healthy scratch.

Doubt we see Kassian against a fast team like PItts.

Looks like we will play Pit next. If we can beat them it should be easy to make it to the finals and then who knows..

oh yeah Latendresse. Wouldn't be surprised to see him again at some point. Conachar is a good example. Stone or Hoffman might get a chance as well. Lats need to use his size better.

Those using Conacher as an example of someone being benched and then returning to play better need to realize that Lats has only dressed for one playoff game. He's not sitting to be "fired up," he's just sitting. I can't imagine him coming back (or wanting to) when he's so far out of the coach's favour. It sucks though, because I still like him.

I think that his concussion history has had something to do here.

Latendresse is done here - that much is clear. He was signed as a "bridge" kind of player until some of the younger guys were ready. In fact, I think he will struggle to find a team anywhere in the NHL willing to offer him a one way deal. He is exactly the kind of player who can be replaced by someone in your system if you have any organizational depth whatsoever. My guess is that he ends up in Europe...

I thought someone posted in some other thread that he's concussed again. Not sure how reliable the source.

I thought Lats was good in Game 1. He has the size and hands to get dirty goals in the playoffs. Why was he benched? Was it because he didn't take on White after the repeated crosschecks?

That seems to be the common consensus, which, to me, seems odd. In a lot of cases, turning the other cheek like that and not retaliating would be seen as a good thing. It almost feels like they're looking for a reason not to play him, although Jim O'Brien tells me they don't really need one.

This is the kind of benching, if that is what went down, that hurts

He played well once he got used to the system, he was one of our better players on certain nights even

Apparently he was benched for not responding to White's antics in Game 2 (some posters have said as much) and if that's the case it's a really crappy way to end his stint as a Senator

Although considering how PMac played Kassian rather consistently from that point onward, I wouldn't be surprised if he took exception to Lats unwillingness to engage in extra curricular shenanigans with a playuer like White. You have to think that Lats, having had serious concussion issues, just doesn't want to get more physical than he feels he has to; I've had one concussion myself and I can really relate to that, concussions are really messed up.

Just because Latendresse is slow as hell there's no reason to replace him with someone else who's even slower. Hoffman would be a much better option.

Couldn't agree more, never cared for Lats, found him lazy & slow.

Hoffman is clearly the better option, but he is still coming off of his injury and if he is not ready to go when a space opens up it will be Stone. Hoffman would have been one of the first callups when the injury bug hit the big team, but he was injured.
