Something about Havlat

After observing havlat, I find something particular troubling about his offensive repetoire. Is it me or does he virtually score all his goals on the rush and very few within the context of sustained attack in the offensive zone? The Schaefer/Vermette/Havlat tend to cycle the puck- in fultility- on the perimeter. At this point, the Donut line looks like it will have more success come playoff time, with Neil and Fisher's willingness to crash the net. I am a little worried about Havlat.

It's only been about 10 games, so I'm not worried right now. Vermette has shown a willingness to go to the net just like Neil and Fisher, Havlat and Schaefer just don't shoot as much as they should. They try to get too fancy.

The very definition of Havlats game is that he is a game breaker. He finds holes, counters on break downs and can score on anyone. He is definitely the X factor on our team, much like Satan was for a number of years on those strong Buffalo teams. With that said, it would be nice to see that line create some offence from some continued pressure and cycling. It will take some time for that to develop, but its definitely possible.

Our entire team only scores on the rush. The only time we score through sustained offensive pressure in the opponents zone is on the powerplay. That's why we have such trouble against teams who focus on not giving up odd-man rushes, like Florida. Without Cairns' stupid penalties that Florida game probably goes to overtime.
