I didn't know that honestly, but I wouldn't be against a havlat signing either.

If both are healthy, both are good.

Both are players who have had their fair share of injuries. It's hard to choose which one really, but I'd say the likeliness of getting Gaborik is greater based on the fact that I think he's definitely looking for a new team, where as Havlat would likely be more inclined to stay a Hawk.

If we could sign Havlat for cheaper though I'd definitely say him. But honestly I think Gaborik truly does have the potential to be a top 10 in the NHL kind of guy. Not saying Havlat is some schmuck, he's a great player too.

Man that would be a hard decision but I guess I would choose whichever one would take a shorter term deal for cheaper if it came down to both of them, which would likely be Havlat.
