What's best for Lats may not be best for the team as it's not simply about him.

That's what bothers me, we've brought him on the team... but for what purpose?

to be a slow 3rd liner, or a power forward on the top 6? and if chips plays on the 3rd next year, there is NO way that lats is going to be on his line... thats my humble opinion.

but like u said, if lats did not improve, he doesnt deserve to hold a roster spot.

I like the idea of tanguay - koivu and lats ... to me, lats has to play with koivu, otherwise I don't see his purpose on the team. (assuming the plek line stays the same)

when you look at everything, Sundin is the missing key... if he comes, we'll have all we need to ensure our offense is 1rst class, and well balanced. having s.kos/higgins/lats play with koivu instead of chipchura would have an instant impact on our team.
