The Sens wouldn't be adding any payroll either for the most part, assuming that Havlat's contract is in excess of $2M. Keyword there is

What people are making assumptions? Nobody insinuated that Saprykin is a center. One poster said the Sens have Vermette and Spezza, why do we need Saprykin. No mention of center there, and Vermette is now a LW'er. Another poster said that with the Sens bevy of centers, they can try those guys out at LW so they don't need Saprykin. Nobody said Saprykin was a center.
It's just not a good deal, period. Besides, Ottawa is not making any trades unless there are injuries or an established marquee player becomes available for reasonably cheap as a rental.
