Good Bye Dany Boy

1) Not a surprise, but still kinda is to read about  Dany Heatley being placed on waivers. Heatley, 33, signed a one-year contract worth $1 million over the summer with the Ducks, but has failed to produce any offence this season. The former second overall pick has zero points in six games for Anaheim. (He's also played two games with the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League.)

2) Realistically Heatley's fall occurred years ago. he's been playing on his past accomplishments for far too long in our opinion. His last really productive season was the 09-10 season in San Jose when he scored 39 gaols and had 82 points. In the 4 seasons that have followed he hasn't eclipsed the 30 goal plateau despite being paid like a top 10 talent (8 million salary)!  So don't cry for Dany boy, he's racked in well in excess of 50 million in career earnings

3) Where he goes from here is not certain. He could get picked up by a team desperate to give him (another) chance. A team that needs a PP presence . Despite the fact that he's done virtually nothing to deserve another shot he will probably get one. Just don't expect the Senators to be one of those teams!  LOL

I can not say that I am at all surprised at this turn of events either. I never had animus towards Mr. Heatley like many here in Eastern Ontario, but I can't say I am a fan of his either

Sorry Spock, I can't be unemotional about Heatley. As a loyal Edmontonian my whole life I hate it when our area is besmirched. He spurned us and many of us still wouldn't piss on him if he was on fire!


1) Your viewpoint about Dany is what we read a lot from in our e-mais from folks in your area and Ottawa.

2) Seems Heatley hasn't endeared himself to too many fan bases. Kinda amazing since if you were to meet him in person he's a very nice guy
