Lats Play since returned

I find since he's come back from his Neck Spasms he's played with intensity and grit. I really like what I've seen the last couple games. Is it him or the line he's playing with?? I hope to see lots more in the playoffs

More importantly, Lats is moving much better out there. He looks like he lost some of that baby fat!

He started playing better on the West Coast road trip (scoring that goal in LA gave him a confidence boost) and it was noticeable even before he was injured in Boston. He's been just as solid, if not more since returning.

Remember the rookie year of Ryder he was so darn slow. I think that if Lats continues training hard he can become an average skater

I was amazed how he outskated some of his opponents a few time.
Can't wait to see what kind of season he'll have next year. Hope he gets top6 ice time.

He was still looking slow doing it, which fuels the notion that maybe he looks slower than he actually is.

His strides are very wide, which helps the notion of him being slow. The same occurred with Damphousse, though Damphousse did slow down considerably in 98.

Lats has been better lately, and I would think that the internal competition between teammates has caught on, when the Habs are healthy, there is only so much room, and guys like Begin and Dandy have played very well recently, and if Tender doesn't put out good efforts, then he will likely have to sit...

I just hope he takes power skating lessons this summer. With some speed and confidence he will be a force. A guy his size who has soft hands, speed and a good shot is rare.

The kid has always had potential.
The real question has always been, how he would develop in the NHL versus the AHL (last year).
I've always been rather optimistic

man i cant wait to see how our young guys will react in their first playoff experience. I remember ribeiro and ryder sucked, while pleky and perez look really good the first time they were in the playoffs. Lets hope we discover some playoffs performer ala koivu and zednik in all of our young players.

I've seen several posts in the past hinting that Latendresse was somehow a pale comparison to a Steve Bernier, the prototypical young powerforward from the Q. IMO, the jury's still out.
