I don't think he'll be overly physical, but he might be a better 2 way player in the ducks system, but his offense will ultimately suffer.

However, from a duck's perspective and the salary structure Ryan >>> Heatley.
Don't the Ducks want to unload Guigere and go with a cheaper Hiller instead? Maybe look at a hypothetical 3 way trade to make the salaries work a bit better:

ANA:
Heatley

OTT:
Ryan
*Likely salary dump*

3rd Party in need of goalie:
Guigere

Value is completely off, but it depends on what people think Guigere's value is. It's likely Ottawa is going to have to add a bit more to the deal to make it work for Anaheim, but if Guigere was moved in the process then they'd save a small amount of cap space, but improve their team immediately. They'd end up with a Heatley-Getzlaf-Perry line, but would still have a chunk of cap space to improve their team. Supplement picks where needed.
