A prime example is not based on assumptions.

Lats problem was training and still is training. If you can find a clip from last summer on RDS where he's with a personal trainer getting ready for the 10-11 season, you'll know what I mean. His level of dedication was too low and often came into question, from his own words, and he realized that. He was training more last summer, and still, 1-2 months after that, it gets out that he was not in good shape when he came into Wild camp... surprise surprise...
