Normally, it would make good financial sense to let Alfie go as a UFA and just let the less expensive Havlat graduate up the ladder. But Alfie is very important to the Sens, more than the stats indicate. The Sens take a big step back losing Alfie. The Sens will make an effort to re-sign Alfie but not at any cost. If Alfie goes then Havlat stays. If Alfie signs a long term deal and Havlat starts to become too expensive... then I figure the Sens will deal down the road. Hossa is out of the question...don't even entertain thoughts.

All this is NOT for this season though...and if things work out, maybe not for next. IMHO.
