I'll add to the Lats debate.
I've always been a staunch supporter of GL. This was based on a combination of glimpses of on-ice potential, and his ostensible good attitude and willingness to work on his weaknesses (powerskating lessons etc.). Now based on the reality of the situation (IMO, poor attitude based on his post-Habs comments), and if the rumours are true (not taking his powerskating lessons seriously, not listening to the coaches), then I change my opinion of him 360 degrees.
For GL to be a factor in this league, IMO he MUST work harder than most players (due to his skating deficiencies), and he MUST step it up in the hockey sense and awareness areas (to offset his skating deficiencies) and he MUST step it up in the physical side by avoiding the perimeter like the plague (so he can fully utilize his god-given size and strength).
If the reported attitude is true, all of the above are going to come slowly, if at all....because it appears to me his ego is bigger than his heart.
