His waist line likely grew some more. The dude has been so inactive for the last 2 years who knows what shape he is in these days. I personally do not want to see them team waste money on him since there are way to many questions that are not worth risking any real money on to get answers to.

I'd take Latendresse back, just because I feel he has more to give (if he can ever stay healthy). If we can learn to live with the fact that he isn't a power forward (and stop trying to force him to be), I think he could do well here.

On the other hand, I feel like we've seen pretty much all anyone is ever going to get out of Kostitsyn.

The real question should be about Cammalleri. We have a huge hole on our 2nd line and with new management we could turn the ship around. He never should have left.

As for Latendresse, trust me, he's lazy. I have my sources Exemple, showing up fat and out of shape at Wilds camps. Plus, is always injured. I'm not biased at all. I just know when it comes to Latendresse.
thats pretty much common knowledge by now, I heard the exact same thing and when I saw him I was surprised at how he did not look like a hockey player at all. Its not ''maybe he doesnt train as hard'' as he should ... you actually wonder if he trains at all. You could even argue that thats what makes him injury prone.

Definitely plays a part. I still wouldn't mind giving him another chance. Although... if the Wild don't even bother to qualify him, that would be a pretty big statement regarding his commitment to hockey and how (not) seriously he takes his training. I don't wanna hear how it could "wake him up" at this point, the trade to Minny was supposed to do that. Meh, I guess I just contradicted myself big time. I have no idea how I feel about this guy. I was a huge fan of his while he was with us.

Don't care for Andrei much, to be honest, but I want Serge back

The blubber doesn't help him skate fast either.

Latendresse would certainly be a project but in the current francaphone environment it wouldn't surprise me. Despite what happened in the playoffs AK will attract attention from teams,everyone is looking for secondary scoring.
Personally I'd take AK if he came with his little bro.

At some point when a player is unhappy and unproductive, you have to sever ties. having 6 mil in cap hit scoring under 20 goals a year is unacceptable, nearly as bad as Gomez.
