The Sens are negotiating with Alfie for a contract extension (he is a UFA at the end of this year). If they reach contract terms, it means that Hossa and Alfie are the #1 and #2 RWs for the upcoming years, so Havlat is a #3 RW, which seems to be a waste of top line talent (though Havlat gets first unit PP time). So it is just possible they might move Havlat, if they reach contract terms with Alfie.

What they want in return: Morrow, Morrow, or even Morrow. Other options lose too much in age, add too much in salary, or donít provide enough skill. Having said that, perhaps Jere Lehtinen would be considered, as he can play LW, and was resigned to a four year deal, paying him $2.6M this year, and Jacques Martin would love him so much he would have his babies after the necessary sex change.

In previous threads discussing Havlat, Morrow, or Lehtinen resulted in some non-constructive postings, as the fans generally like these players a lot, and donít want to see them move. So Iím not sure if we should toss these names around lightly.

Perhaps we should instead debate the safer Bonk for Arnott type deal.

Edit: Please see TSN article: TSN: Senators out of Peca sweepstakes?

So if the Sens want somebody Morrow-like, and don't want to give up a young D, then it will take somebody like Havlat to make it happen. However according to the terms of the Sens fans charter, we are obligated to first offer you White and Schastlivy for Morrow, and we are willing to explain in great detail why that is a terrific deal (did you know Schastlivy has a great shot?).
