If he stays healthy, if he gets PP minutes, if he can play with someone else than Murray/Downey: I say yes. That said, before game one, I was expecting a 10-10-20 season from him.

He just might but he cannot get the sydrome some rookies get of losing momentum during the second half of the season from being to tired. He should be a shoe-in for 15, 20 is a little far but very possible for sure!!

Hi everybody. I've been a lurker for a while but I've decided to throw in my opinion on a few subjects and test the waters here.
Latendresse could hit 20 goals if he was still on the 1st line. Now that Higgens is back, it might be a little harder for him to accomplish this. But you never know.... things change fast and he could be back on one of the top lines if injuries occur or if Carbonneau changes his lines (like he does sometimes in the 3rd). He gets power play time on the 2nd unit, so he still might do it. I think he'll get between 12-15 goals this year unless he gets on a steak for a while.

p.s. Merry Christmas to everybody here!!

He still gets plenty of PP time, and crashing the net, which is what he does, is bound to result in a bunch of goals.

That being said, I think the over/under is about 17 goals for Lats.

He might, but it's not a given. I fully expect him to reach and perhaps pass that benchmark next season.

Do you mind clarifying it a little?
It is simply what Guillaume has done on the 1st line so far, projected on a full season, and what he has done on the 4th projected on a full season. Doesn't mean much in reality, other than giving a sense that if he would play the top lines for the full season, he would probably easily score 20+ goals. At the opposite, if he would spend a full year on the 4th, he would not come close. All the rest are details ex: will play with Lapierre, Streit, begin, not murray... or will play in occasional PP...
