i completely get that feeling, being a big fan of Havlat as well...

question is, do the sharks GM &/or coach feel the same way? With Havlat getting used on the 4th line of late, not a stretch to think they would be open to options at moving him.
Factor in that @ 5M$ for another 2 seasons, Havlat isn't likely to tempt many teams, and a Cole/Havlat swap might be the best they could realistically aim for short of getting pennies on the dollar for Havlat (later picks/depth prospects/lesser NHLers).

if anything, 1-for-1, i think it would be hard to argue in favor of a Cole-Havlat swap from the habs pov.
