I'll join in with officeglen and disagree with the Jokinen>>Havlat eevaluation.

You say you're basing this on intagiables, which ones exactly?
Two way play: While not telling the whole story you don't finish +20 by being a donkey in your own end. He did lose Friesen for that goal. But he is only 22.
Fiestiness: Havlat pisses people off, we love it.
Toughness: I'll give you that.
Clutchness: Havlat has been clutch in the post season for Ottawa, he doesn't disappear. Ask Flyer fans about him.
Best at impersonating a human highlight real: Havlat is a sick skater and stickhandler.
Consistency: Not only has havlat put up 50+points 3 times now, he also produced 59 points - 6 less than jokinen in 15 less games. Note Jokinen melted down in the last quarter last year (0.30 points per game - currently producing at 0.56 versus Havlat who is producing at 0.86 this year and who's quietest quarter was producing at 0.72 points).

Now while I'll give you the physical dimension, it by no means offsets the respective ceilings and potential shown by the players so far.
