Pens interested in Havlat?
According to Marty Havlat's agent Allan Walsh's Twitter, Havlat and Walsh are in Prague eating dinner right now. Once July 1st hits, the Pens will be in the market for a top 6 scoring winger (if Guerin/Fedotenko don't re-sign). Could Walsh be telling Havlat how good it is to play for the Pens? Maybe. I know Havlat loves playing and living in Chicago so getting him here will be tough.
Both the Hawks and the Pens play a similiar up-tempo stlye of play. So coming here wouldn't be a big adjustment for Havlat. Walsh is the agent for 5 Pens players including: Marc-Andre Fleury, Ruslan Fedotenko, Petr Sykora, Miro Satan, and Pascal Dupuis. Because of this he has a strong relationship with GM Ray Shero. Something could be in the works and oh how amazing it would be.
