Dany Heatley to Devils
Looks like there is a couple rumors indicating Dany Heatley could be dealt to New Jersey. Apparently the FAN radio network in Minnesota has indicated that Heatley is not making the trip to Nashville and has already waved his NMC. Don't know how realistic this is but it's at least interesting that the rumor is out there.

As the rumor stands the deal would be:

Minnesota gets:
Alexander Urbom, Henrik Tallinder, Picks..

NJ gets:
Dany Heatley

Seems to me like this would be wayyyy more reported if in fact a deal was this far along so I doubt it's validity but it's an interesting discussion. I think this would be a snag for Minnesota personally. The picks alone for Minnesota would be worth it. Most nights, Wild fans would be satisfied with a bag of pucks and a broken stick for Heatley. The move would give Minnesota a lot of cap space. They dump the cap and a player in big time decline no matter how many times he can still show some scoring ability. Basically Heatley is good for one thing now.. His shot. He's got a great one timer, a lot like Stamkos except for Stamkos can skate and stickhandle and do more than be a pylon with a heavy shot.

Discuss this potential deal. Opinions?

That's interesting. Playing for the Devils could be a nice change of scenery for Heatley.

Doubt it, though someone who cannot skate that well would fit with the NJD(back of the heels team not tip of the toes, this is not meant to be flaming them)

Would be neat to see him and Kovy on the same team again

Looks like a trade that could make both teams better.

NJ would be great for Heatly

could be good for both teams, but I'd want to know what picks before I actually judge.

so is this a BS rumor?

caley 03-08-2013 01:38 PM

Probably b.s. Plus, no one seems able to corroborate the radio report. Gonna close this up, if anyone wants it open and has a credible reason/link (i.e. not Hockey Insiderrrrr) PM me and we'll see what we can do.
