Let Kovalev walk after this season (probably into retirement), and lets spend the money on a top tier forward.
I don't understand this at all. Havlat is a top tier forward IMO and is a ppg player. You want us to sign a top tier forward? That forward would have to want to sign with us or else we will be overpaying probably in both dollars and term. Which would in the end most likely be a lot worse than Havlat's contract, we're not getting a top tier UFA forward cheaply and on a short term contract no less. Furthermore, I can't see the Nhl approving more retirement contracts. I can understand the worry with Havlat's injury history and I'll concede that point, I just really think that there is a lot flawed logic in what you want to happen.
