Not enough IMO for a 6-3 220lb multi 50 goal 100+ point player who is only 28 year old.

Ottawa must get a player who can contribute and get better in the NHL (a young player who's at least shown he is a mid 20's goal scorer to manage some of the risk of the other 2 peices), a bluechip prospect, and a top 5-6 lottery pick.

That isnt too much to ask for a superstar LW IMO.
1. Gagner and Cogliano >>>>> Foligno my friend... and they are 19 and 21 years old respectively. They have extremely high potential. Think Schenn, Voracek value here.

2. If you think Ottawa is going to get a young 25+goal scorer + elite prospect + top 5 lottery pick for Heatley, you are some kind of crazy. The contract coming is ENORMOUS!
