from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,
On a night when the Washington Capitals and their star-studded lineup make a rare appearance at Xcel Energy Center, more eyes might be on Martin Havlat than Alex Ovechkin.
That’s because on Wednesday, the Wild winger’s agent went on the attack over the way his client has been used since signing a six-year, $30 million contract with the Wild.
Agent Allan Walsh said he believes Havlat can be a marquee player in Minnesota, but Walsh said Havlat’s productivity has been inhibited because the Wild is using him in a “purely secondary role.”
Walsh’s comments put coach Todd Richards and General Manager Chuck Fletcher on the defensive Wednesday—one day after Richards and Havlat had what Fletcher called a “productive meeting” regarding these very same issues.
