Heatley doesnt need Spezza to score goals. Nor does Spezza need Heatley to get his points.
Yeah, sure. Funny how most of the time they tried to split up the CASH line it was Alfredsson moving down and Spezza and Heatley staying together.

Heatley was a beast at 20, yeah, but a broken jaw, bruised lung, concussion, a bruised lung, messed up knee and broken orbital bone later he's not the same player even if he's still an elite sniper. At this point if you're trading for him it's realistic to expect him to be consistenly good for 40 goal seasons, if you expect a constant 45-50 goal scorer coming your way you're most likely to be disappointed. At the same time, he's an extremely one dimensional player while Ryan forchecks, backchecks and hits like a rabid dog.
