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.

Didn't get a chance to watch the Olympics did you? The Czech team had Jagr, Lang, Hejduk, Straka and Sykora. Havlat was hardly their best player.
