He's a 0.5ppg, non-physical player and I'm really not impressed with him this season and I never liked his fit with the Habs or his contract. He's a Jacques Martin dump-and-change player and I guess he reminds of the darktimes.

I guess I want him to play better, to finish some more plays and make some - Pleks has a pretty simple game and I don't see them working well together unless Gionta makes some more plays and quits losing the puck mid-zone. 0.5ppg is not good enough.
Yet you want Havlat for him. 0.5 ppg also on an offensive team like SJ. You used the term injury prone to describe Gionta, but Havlat has always been injury prone. You also have to remember that compared to Gionta, Havlat is a soft perimeter player.
