Lats has become a way more dynamic player, he is pretty involved in the game, has found his junior scoring instincts back and if he hadnt been so unlucky with injuries, he would have been in a position to ask for about 3 - 3.5M this summer.. He is a very very interesting gamble cause if he can stay healthy for the most part of the season, he will play a very important role with the team adding some very serious depth.. In other words, little risk, huge reward type of short term signing..
Actually, that was of his damn doing. He had a year left before AHL eligibility, but his agent insisted the Habs sign him now and put him in the NHL or else he would wait for him to go back to the draft so he could be picked by someone else.
