Lats is a top 6 player. That's it. He's also a good top 6 player when healthy.

For his price and what he can bring I think it would be foolish not to keep him. It is a bit of a risk due to the injuries the last couple years, but the potential far outweighs a couple mil for a very strong player who is still young. The concussion this year was not his fault and could have happened to anyone.

I would rather have him and what we know he can bring then trade him for some potential who knows what prospect or pick. We could only hope most prospects could turn into him.
