Let me guess, you haven't watched Havlat play at all this past two seasons right? Just looking at the numbers and the media cliches of euros being "uninspired". When healthy, Havlat has been great for the Sharks. He's was one of the best forwards last season, and he was probably the 2nd best forward in the post-season after Thornton.

Your second quote just further shows that you don't watch him play at all. One, he hasn't been 100%. Two, his linemates for the majority of his games have been terrible. When he's on the PP, he's stuck with players like Vlasic, Gomez, Clowe, and Handzus. On even strength, he's been playing with the likes of Handzus, Galiardi, and Burish. And don't even play the "he got demoted to the 3rd line because he sucks" card. He was put on the 3rd line because the coach wanted to spread out the scoring. When Havlat played with players like Marleau, Couture, and Thornton (which he should be doing on a consistent basis), he's been great.
