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.
Just to further qualify this...because it's partially true what the earlier poster said about Havlat not being able to play the LW.
up until this year...Havlat hasn't been the same player on the LW that he has been on the RW. Only as of late, has he started to have a little more success on the LW than in the past. But it's still very apparent that he's much happier on the right side.
