Also i think if you add two years of development to Havlat and put him on last years avs team he produces better numbers then Tanguay did, actually even without the two years of development he outscores him on that team. Bottom line Havlat is a better player right now.
Saying that you would rather have Forsberg, Sakic, and Hejduk over Tanguay is not saying much. Those are three of the best scorers in the game. I might rather have those guys too, but that certainly doesn't suggest that Tanguay isn't also an elite scorer.
I don't see how you can say Havlat is a "better player now." I think Havlat has done great, but for now, Tanguay is more proven and has accomplished more.
If personally would not do Havlat for Tanguay straight up, because I love Havlat's upside. But, I think you are selling a major talent short here.
