People keep talking about White as a "throw in" but fact is, while he may have only gotten his points thanks to Alfredsson, not entirely true BTW, he could still be a threat for a 25-35 or a 20-40 season playing for the senators. He's got good chemistry with Alf, IMO when White is on he improves Alfredsson's game too. The guy's got good speed and plays on our PK, and IMO his grit/heart is underrated, see his face in the playoffs? He had an off-year but he's still had more goals and points than either Calder or Arnason have ever had (not that they might not get better). He's a definite asset for our team. Then you have Havlat, 30+ goals, PPG, an extremely talented player, the best player in the deal in fact, plus he's the youngest? Add to that the fact that all signs point to him only getting better with age. It just sounds to me that this deal is clearly favoring the Hawks.
