RFAs Havlat and Gaborik are bargains!

Each additional $1,377,689 One additional first-round choice to a maximum of five

Is Martin Havlat worth 2, 3 or 4 first rounders? He wants 2.5 for 2 or more years. He scored 59 pts. with 24 goals in 67 games last year. +20. 22 years young. Ranked as the 6th best LW on CBS Sportsline. Say 2.3 for 4 years with incentives.

Marion Gaborik is also still out there and is worth the 5 first rounders if we can sign him long term. 30 goals, 35 assists, +12, and 21 Years old.

These will not be top ten picks if these guy's are on the team.

If we are worried about the end of Ziggy's contract, or just want to bulk up on the eastern euro scorring machines here's a way to go.

Both the Senators and the Wild are cheaping these guys out. This would be a dumpster I'd dive in!
