Dany Heatley traded to Minnesota for Havlat

Recommended Posts

Burns and Havlat for Heatley, Setoguchi, Charlie Coyle and a 1st.

Dany will always conjure negative thoughts.

My thoughts on this deal is that it better be worth it for San Jose. Unless I heard that Heatley caused problems in the locker room, he was pretty damn productive with the Sharks. What will Havlat bring to the table that made this risk possible?

He has drawn criticism for his lack of production in the playoffs, scoring just five goals in 32 games over the past two post-seasons.

For a guy making 7 million a season, that's not productive.

I'm very shocked about this trade. Martin Havlat has become one of my favorite players. I wish him luck. I wish the Hawks somehow kept him. But if they did, he'd probably be playing in Atlanta/Winnipeg or Florida right now instead of San Jose.

Don't forget salary cap hits of 7.5 vs 5.

And Heatley scored only 26-38-64 last season, compared to Havlat's 22-40-62 (in 2 fewer games).

Speed could be an issue, too...

Edit: Heatley played with a broken hand for over a month and some other injuries, hurting his stats.

Both teams get what they want. San Jose gets a playoff performer and the Wild get a sniper, sounds fair to me.

You blind?

Havlat's playoffs PPG: 0,73

Heatley'S playoffs PPG: 0,86

Not surprised Heatley's gone. Funny, he used to be teammates with Havlat for one year in 2005-06 with Ottawa.
