We need to start adding more depth to this team and it might come at the cost of a skilled player like Marty.
If you really want to look at the big picture, you'll see that they don't need to sacrifice Havlat to acquire those pieces. They have four players in Wingels, Desjardins, Galiardi, and Sheppard who are either under contract or RFA's. That's a pretty solid start for a bottom six if they're being played and used properly. And they will have enough space even with a reduced cap to fill the rest out. And if they need more, I'd sooner buy out Burish via the compliance than trade Havlat for that purpose.
