He is a perimeter player as he won't get into traffic. I'm guessing you didn't watch as many habs games as I did last year, anytime Samsonov scored a goal while there was a scrum, it was because he came in a picked up a loose puck at the side of the net. So unless he was on a break-away or one on one he would usually just lose the puck or skate in circles, not very effective. He may have been ok without Kovalev as they both like to do the same thing, but Kovalev at least has size and when he wants to control the puck in the corner he can where as Samsonov could be pushed off the puck. I'm not saying he's not talented, but he's not going to be putting up 75 points without being in the (-). Also Havlat like to carry and control the puck, so what will happen when both want to do that on the same line? Doen't seem like it would work so well.
