I was one of Latendresse's biggest haters when he was here but he was never really THAT bad. I have to admit I liked what he brought to the team in 2008-2009 when he played with Lapierre and Kostopoulos, he understood his role and played it just fine. If he's willing to accept a 1 year contract at 1.5 million, I'd give him a shot. He's probably really hungry (no pun intended) to prove that he's healthy and that he can still produce in the NHL after his last two years that have been filled with injuries. He did have 25 goals in 55 games with the Wild so he definitely has offensive upside. He can be a decent project and an insurance in case Bourque doesn't produce.

Cole - Desharnais - Pacioretty
Bourque - Plekanec - Gionta
Latendresse - Eller - Moen
Prust - Gaustad/McClement - White
