Saying he wants to move closer to his 4-year-old son, who lives in Montreal, the winger becomes a free agent.

On the bright side, we paid him just over 185K for every game he played for that 5 Mil. Yup, move home young fella.

I agree with jacheste, He was either overweight or injured and sometimes both. I have no problem with the fact he was injured but this guy has cost the team plenty with very little to show for it.

Just another example of a classless act in the sporting industry. Take buckets of money from the Wild for doing nothing and then walk away. Love using his child as an excuse( Remember Spreewell "How am I going to feed my family"). Classless,classless,classless.

While I'm not saying some of you are wrong in your comments, I think two things you need to consider before passing judgment: 1. I don't think he wanted to be hurt. I know you could probably make the argument that poor conditioning resulted in some of his injuries.. and you might be right.. but I still don't think he had ill intentions. 2. As a parent of small children, I realize how hard it is to be away from them...especially for a long period of time. My guess is that his son was pretty young in the first couple years he played here but now at age 4, he wants to spend time with his father. Unlike some parents, hopefully he realized that life is short and the time you have to spend with your children while they are young is even shorter. Kudos to him for sounding like he is placing more value on fatherhood and less on work. For those of you bashing him, you really need to grow up.

Ok with me! out of shape and always injured. As a very loyal Wild fan, this broken record of big contract players who are always in the press box needs to stop. Bye Lats. You were paid a fortune for nothing and when you didn't stay in shape, it said a lot about your character. Now, PMB needs to either retire or play. If he can't play, he needs to be done this year and let the Wild move on. His contract is a like a giant anchor.
