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.
Kovalev makes $5 million dollars.
You can get a top-tier player for $5 million dollars.

You conceded that he's had injury problems.
Would you be willing to hold on to that risk until he's 34?

BTW, he has 450 points in 543 regular season games. Not a PPG player.
