The problem lies with their D system of contain rather than attack in the D zone and THAT system affects the transition game and IMO the compete level of the team. Its kinda like playing zone D in basketball and it may limit shots but it limits aggressiveness and tenaciousness and in the end if affects overall compete levels..IMO

Todd is not telling Havlat to play soft and not compete ..
watch tonight how many times havlat fishes or poke checks for pucks rather than body on body. Watch how many times Havlat button hooks rather than finishing a guy on the forecheck or in the O zone....

i get it, he is crafty, but he is soft and injury prone. Ship him out for a bag of pucks and a pick b/c there is absolutely no leverage with him and he is not productive enough to stick around after this year.
And yet he had 6 shots on goal in the last game, leading the team, and his defensive stats have consistently been some of the best on the team since the trade. Funny how that works.

Also, he's 5th on the team in shots per game... Ahead of Boyle, Burns, Thornton...
