He might be a good mentor for him tho. Perhaps thats what Latendresse needs.

He doesn't need someone to teach him what to do, he needs someone to play with him. If Lats ever gets a chance to play with Mikko Koivu they should both do well together.

Boogard with an assist on Kobasew's goal; to all the haters who said Pouliot was held off because of Derek. When now know it was the opposite, Pouliot held him back. The guy's on pace for records with equal talents to his ... oh yeah, ...

Not really the Koivu line (who plays with Brunette and Kobasew)...

Again, he goes back to where he feel more confident...
With more confidence, he would go anywhere.
Ah what the heck, one for the road!

Sure, he did it mostly against third lines and second pairing D-men and Cammalleri was doing it against top-flight opposition. (Although you do have to factor in Cammy had Iginla and Lats had Kostopoulos.) But that remains a staggeringly high number, especially for a 22-year-old player.

This amount of goal-scoring is valuable no matter how it happens. Trying to dismiss it because somehow goals don't count if it's Lats scoring them or if third-pairing D-men are on the ice is silly. If Lats is a fantastic scorer from the third line and nothing else, that's still a very useful quality. At 800k, it's not like he's keeping you from getting good second liners and it's not like you'd suffer from matching him up against the bottom of the opposition's roster.

It's difficult to understand why the coaches would not want for him to keep this up even if they decide he is not ready for a top-six role, it's puzzling how that little stat alone does not merit him at least some consideration for a scoring role or really any consideration at all from some people, and it really ought to make you wonder why his scoring has completely cratered this year after three years of constant improvement.

And besides, my real point here is that asking Latendresse to score more goals, by driving to the net or otherwise, was a little silly to begin with. Latendresse was simply not likely to score more goals unless he got more icetime, or started scoring them on the PP. Very few players squeeze as many goals as he does in the icetime he gets, third line or not. Trying to teach Latendresse how he can score goals at the NHL level was always a little silly. It should have been abundantly clear he already knew.

We used to have a fantastic third-line goal-scorer. Instead now we have Pouliot, who has lots of unrealized upside and not much else. Well, some decent goal-scoring stats in limited action this year, let's hope he keeps it up. But I think the Wild will be quite happy with Lats if they use him well.
Drop the stats from your mind and look at the way Lats played for us this year. You are blinded by all the numbers floating in your mind.

Lats played horrible this year. He was never a dangerous threat to score. The two goals he did score were easy shots right next to the net.

When did he score a game winning goal or game tying goal this year when we really needed it. When did he make a great play to help us tie or win a close game. Never happened.

He was easy to defend this year and very rarely threatened to help us score at all.

He was given many chances to play on lines with skilled players this year and every time he did not show that he could keep up with the highly skilled, fast tempo of our best players.

I like Gui but he cannot play at the level of Cammy, Gomez, Gio, Pleks etc.

They're using it in Germany and apparently, only a question of time before it makes its entry in North America and the rest of the world.

It's pretty funny that you try to end the debate by inflamming it...

But I agree that people needs to move on, the lovers and the haters.

I'm happy we got Pouilot, I like talented players, but I wish we would have traded someone else to get him.

End of my story.

Oh wow, a change of image could really make a huge impact regarding the future goals of the industrie. The new red tone makes McDonalds look alot more mature, or atleast less childish, and green is the ''in'' color right now, making Mcdonalds look like a companie that cares, cause green represents saving the enviroment, that's a huge gamble, but they definately needed it...

P.S: I study in Marketing, i just love discussing stuff like that.

I'm encouraged by the fact that the team (on the whole) has improved enough that Lats (and Chips for that matter) no longer seems like a good enough player here. Hate to move guys that you've picked and/or brought through the system, and you wish you could see the future of those with "potential", but if you have a chance to improve your team...

It has too, there's been way too many statisticsshowing the consequences of over-using ressources, climate changes are already showing, smog in big citys, showing of wastelands, new diseases caused by pollution everyday, etc, etc.

The movie was a flop. but the ''Super size me'' thing and kids having more options then Mcdonald's to both eat and have fun at the same time has caused sales to go down quite a bit in very few years.

No, I just refuse to let 20 games in one season cancel out three full seasons.

We're blinded by short-term thinking on this board. Look at what happened to Plekanec.
