Question: Are the Sens right to give Havlat a 24-hour "sign or sit" ultimatum?

I think this could really backfire on the Sens if Muckler sticks to his guns. When they played hardball with Yashin he had already peaked; they got more for him then than, say, the Islanders would get for him now. These next two years are supposed to be the bargain years with Havlat. Even if they give him what he wants (about 2.5 a year, up from the 1.9 they offered) that's a great bargain for what they're likely to get. Havlat is still on the way up, and while his next contract (barring big changes in the new CBA) will likely be too rich for the impoverished Sens, this one surely isn't. I find it ridiculous that a team who was one goal away from going to the Stanley Cup final last year is going to let a rising star the calibre of Havlat sit out rather than play for the sake of saving a couple hundred thousand bucks a season. If I'm a Sens fan I'd be colossally pissed right about now. This isn't Yashin, who I think they were right to let sit. Havlat should get paid and he should play.

Then again, I'm a Flyers fan, and a weakened Sens team is certainly in my best interest. If they're stupid enough to keep Havlat off the ice, it doesn't really hurt me.

I went to a Sens practice a year ago and Havlat is probably the fastest guy I have ever seen on the ice. I have never seen a player move with the speed and grace he does (sans Gretzky)

I really believe he will end up to be one of the top 10 players in the NHL and the Sens are on crack not to have this guy under contract.

Well, reports today have him headed back to the Czech Republic for the season.

Here's hoping Spezza can live up to his own hype, cause he's going to have to step it up now.

Why would you pay Havlat the same money that Marian Hossa is getting....doesn't seem fair to me.

You pay Havlat what he wants you open up a can of worms that noboby wants to have open.

Here's another can of worms you don't want opened....you've got a new billionaire owner that is supposed to be the financial saviour of the franchise, but the first time something comes up where money is an issue the team goes cheap and lets the player go home. That's a fine message to send your fans.

Bob Clarke traded for a guy who lit up Tie Domi like a Christmas Tree twice last year in the same game... Ummmm..........no. True, Domi doesn't win every fight. But he is never (ever!) "lit up like a Christmas tree".
