Add in the Michalek is just turning 24 and to think his skill has capped out at this point seems very unlikely.
Yeah, I just cant see logic in giving up Milan/Marleau to bring in Heatley who might be a good player but.. has character issues. Also the sharks will be losing defense no matter what if not in forwards than defense and thats not acceptable.
