Havlat is hella fast and he's one of the only guys on the roster who can say that, he's slumping currently but once he gets back on track he will do great. There is no reason to trade him as we currently need forward help anyway, I know that he is pass first and that theme is too common, but he is one of our only fast forwards and we need to keep him unless we're getting a fast goal scorer which we certainly won't for Havlat. Better to just keep him seeing as his value is at an all time low.
I don't remember Havlat having to approve the trade to San Jose. I'm pretty sure that like Heatley, he has windows to be dealt.
I don't know about the second part, but Havlat did waive his NMC for San Jose.
"It was surprising I was presented this deal. I decided to waive the no-move clause for the Sharks. It's a great team with great players, with a chance to win a lot of hockey games," said Havlat on Sunday.
