07:40 AM ET 10.31 | Marty Havlat made his season debut Wednesday night in Los Angeles, and, after recovering from offseason pelvic surgery, went scoreless in 19 shifts. "I think we have to be fair with [Havlat] and give him every opportunity to get his feet going and get involved," Todd McLellan said. "But, the key is get his feet going. For Marty to be effective in our team environment, he's going to have to play with some tempo and some speed. He's going to have to play a north-south game. He knows that, and he can play that way." ... [The Sharks] are able to play both a fast and a heavy game, with an emphasis on skating in straight lines, shooting the puck, and getting it back. Contact and tenacity are required. Whether Havlat, 32, fits that team mentality is to be determined.
