boy, if havlat can keep sucking out one year deals, he can just keep pulling contract year stats out and make 12 million by the time he's 26

Apparently $2.3 million. http://www.canoe.ca/NewsStand/OttawaSun/Sports/2004/09/13/627184.html

As a Sens fan, I'm happy he's signed though it's not like he's going to play any time soon. This is Havlat's second 1-year deal in two years. I guess it forces him to keep producing instead of getting lazy if guaranteed a long term contract.

Another big mistake for John Muckler.

I figure the trio of Alfredsson, Hossa, and Havlat - one of them will be gone after the next year of hockey. Hossa's contract will be up, and he could ask for a huge raise, even with the CBA. Alfy is a UFA (I think?) after a year, even if they don't lower the UFA age. And Havlat will be up for a new deal, probobly wanting $3 - 4, maybe more.

Good luck Ottawa.

Didn't the Canucks sign Bertuzzi long term for a crazy amount of $$$$$?

If I were the Sens I'd keep Havlat instead of Hossa.

I always forgot weather it was him or Koivu who did that, my mistake.

I believe if it comes to Hossa or Havlat, the Sens will choose Hossa, and rightfully so. That kid is just absolutely amazing. I think Havlat to be honest is a very good player, but I do not see him having the super-star power of Hossa. I could see Hossa winning an Art Ross one of these years. Havlat I see as generally a lesser player overall than Hossa is/will be.

He can ask, but he's not going to get it. It's unlikely that an arbitrator will give him Demitra, Hejduk or Thornton money, and he's worth $5 million to a winning team.

Of course, he can always decline arbitration and decide to hold out, but that hasn't been his MO thus far.

Alfy is signed for five years.

$3 million is only a 700k raise, well within reason if Havlat maintains his current development. And keep in mind that arbitrators generally don't break the bank for 24-year-olds. $4 mil is out of the question and neither the team nor an arbitrator would award him that kind of money at his age.

Tampa has, with Lecavalier (4.375 mil), and I believe Richards bumps up to 4 mil + the year after this (not sure if that's a team or player option, I can only imagine it's a team option)

*edit* sorry, kind of misread it to start with, when you say "neither the team nor an arbitrator" you were, I believe now, referring to the Sens. That may be true for them, when I first read it though I somehow thought you meant no team would give a 24 year old that.

As for an arbitrator, unlikely, but I suppose if Havlat performs similarly to Lecavalier next year it might not be unthinkable that he'd a lot closer to 4 mil than 2.3?

I was actually more worried about getting Varada signed.

silly me...

The best RW in hockey is guaranteed to be together for another year...

I personally don't think Havlat will be in a Sens jersey more than another year or two...especially if the Sens bow out of the playoffs early again.

I think they can afford to lose him for sure. In fact, I think moving him would be a pretty good idea. Bring in a great left winger with some size and some hustle. A guy like Keith Tkachuk would be pretty great if he wasn't brutally overpaid and a playoff washout.

Shall we bring up the Ryan Smyth for Martin Havlat stuff again?

Why not Martin Havlat for Richard Zednik? He and Smyth are both unspectacular 60 point, 30 goal scorers in their prime at age 27....
