82, this is his 3rd year. He's scored 33 goals, we've had 2 30 goal scorers in franchise history and they're not here anymore, oddly enough we haven't made the playoffs since.

Arbitration happens AFTER significant UFAs sign. Like I said, you lose the arbitration case and hit in free agency(Parise), walk away. But if we get no help in free agency and Leipold's willing to spend the cap there is no reason not to give Latendresse that $$$. And if you win or he accepts prior, 2.21M is not going to restrain us from signing anyone. 30 goal scorers don't grow on trees, anyone who watches the Wild should be aware of that.

Look at Lupul in Toronto. Anaheim doesn't give him + Gardiner for Beauchemin if they believe Lupul could even return to his 20g 50pt form after his injury problems(77 games in 2 seasons). Guess what? He's surpassing it.
