I've seen Heatley play for years. He's a great offensive threat, but that's really all he brings to the table. One-dimensional, and pretty soft. If he's not scoring goals, he's not doing much.

Bobby Ryan is more of a question mark in what he'll become, but he's a far more complete player with less scoring potential. At the end of the day, though, he's cheaper and his cap-friendly contract makes his value go up. Heaters doesn't really earn that contact.

I don't know. I've never liked one-dimensional players. I really dislike them, actually. I'd probably prefer to have Bobby Ryan over the long-term, but that's just me. But then, my team is rebuilding, so players in their late 20's aren't as appealing as they used to be.
