We got Hossa, but I'm going to miss having Havlat around. He is a real treat to watch too, and is a VERY clutch player. I think you guys will enjoy having him on your team.
Thanks for a Hawks perspective. I am definitely happy with Havlat over Gaborik, especially for less money. Here is hoping that Havlat's shoulder injuries are behind him for good, and unlike Gaborik with his groin, Havlat showed last year that his shoulder can hold up for a whole year.
