That hurts Muckler's attempts to trade him. While Havlat made $2.6 million last season, Muckler must have cringed when he learned the Carolina Hurricanes gave winger Eric Cole a three-year, $12-million deal yesterday. The $4-million mark is expected to be Havlat's starting point when he goes to arbitration.more
