Oh, and we should keep Havlat...don't break up the team just yet, and he is a part of the core.
the only thing about havlat is, last year was his first healthy season in quite a while, and now with the concussion in the WCF, it is slightly concerning...he is involved in the core, but if he is asking heatley type of money, get heatley instead..he is bigger, plays good enough D, puts up more numbers, etc...Havlat is great, but he is not a top 10 forward, Heatley is

The numbers like that are one thing, but it's the historical stats and comparisons that boggle my mind.

For example, when they say something like "team A has not beaten team B in August, on a leap year, with the weather below 79 degrees, since 1840 when Rusty Ladouche was pitching for the team when they were called the Chicago Cardinals..."

That hit was something nasty, but I still think Marty is worth keeping around. I don't think the numbers will be to hard to hammer out, and I tend to have somewhat of a loyalty to players I think are good producers and fan favorites. Maybe that would make me a bad GM, but that's my opinion.

i agree, keep marty if he fits into the salary cap...but if he starts asking for 6+ million, it would be better for the future of the team to pass because, if you trade for heatley, he will only make 4 million next year because on july 1 he is owed half by the sens, and no one is gonna trade before then...secondly getting rid of soupy who has the highest salary on the team....the true core of young guys(toews, kane, versteeg) they all go into RFA next year, so you need to think of the raises those guys will be gettiing
