The D and in the net, we have no re-building to do and up front, Thornton and Patty are still of decent age with a few years ahead of them, followed by some young players in Pav's, Couture, Desjardins, Wingels, Sheppard, Kennedy and Galiardi (aside from any newcomers via free agency and/or trades or one via the system). So, a bit of work in the forwards but, nothing of major necessity other than depth and a skilled addition(s). That is without mentioning Havlat and Clowe in there whom are as well still of decent age but, yet to see what will be done with them this summer 'if' anything. Wondering if Havlat will be a buyout if he cannot turn himself around and bring some much needed offense.
You really can't make determinations about who is and is not struggling when the entire team is unable to score. No one is scoring right now, not just Havlat, and until the team as a whole starts putting up goals you can't go pointing fingers at particular players. Havlat looks good on the ice and his underlying stats say he is doing the right things. I expect when we start putting up more than 1-2 goals a night he will start putting up his as well.
