You would have to pay extra to get either Havlat or Hossa if the offer is prospects and a pick or two.

I'm not over rating them or being a homer, but because each player has shown excellent progression in each season, any team would have to make an offer that Muckler couldn't turn down. Both should be perennial 30+ goal scorers from now own and given their progression 35+ is within reach. Hossa's career best is 45 and Havlat hit his career high this year.

They are already proven players and both are under 25 years old. Why would you give up proven, young, skilled players in exchange for younger, unproven players who just have potential? There's no guarantee that they will ever amount to anything. Yes, there's no guarantee that Havlat or Hossa will continue with this trend but at least Muckler knows that they have done it.

There are several players across the league like this: Kovalchuk, Ryder, Nash, Lecavalier, etc.
