The sole reason why Havlat is said to be available is because he can't play LW to save his life.
Just wanted to correct a couple of things in this comment.
First of all Havlat is not "said to be available". Maybe in fantasy land but certainly not in reality.
Secondly, Havlat was the Czech Republic's best player at the last Olympics....while playing the left side. Havlat also plays the left side on the #1 PP in Ottawa, while alternately subbing in part time as the left winger on the Bonk-Hossa line to get him more minutes.

He has said he prefers the right side but obviously has little trouble playing the other side. Not that it makes a difference i suppose because he isn't going anywhere.

This may seem like a small point but it needed to be set straight by someone who knows the team.
