He scored just his 7th goal this season and I think he is at 18pts right now.
18 points in 23 games isn't chopped liver. Pens need impact wingers in a bad way, and as far as I know there isn't anyone better than Havlat available for anything reasonable (Pitt can't afford Gaborik's ongoing cap hit or to give up the assets they would need to give up to get him). Hawks have wings coming out of their ears and would be able to throw in another 1 or 2 to make this happen without hurting themselves (Brouwer, Aliu, Ladd, etc).
