Very Early MVP

Its far too early in the season to start making serious award predictions, but the MVP so far this year is Martin Havlat of the Chicago Blackhawks. In four games played he has 10 points (which leads the league), six goals (which is tied for league lead) and has a +7 +/- rating (which is also tied for the league lead). Many other teams have one more game than Chicago so that makes his league leading figures that much more spectacular.

I had wondered how Havlat would fit into Chicago. Would he be lost without the first class linemates he enjoyed in Ottawa? So far he hasn't missed a beat. In fact, he has probably done better without them. Will he be able to keep it up all season? If so, Chicago might be a surprise playoff team.
