As for Havlat, they have pretty much an identical PPG unless you want to go into several decimals. Nash also has significantly more goals, has played with significantly less talent and is not extremely injury prone.
They've had pretty equal linemates in their careers.

Havlat never got the prime ice time in OTT because he was behind Hossa and Alfredsson and played a lot on the 2nd PP unit.

He got to play shotgun with Kane and Toews for one full season with the Hawks. His best linemate before that was Handzus, Vrbata and Rene Bourque.
