Ilya has freaky ass talent, but he doesn't even know there is a defensive zone as of yet!
Ilya is more gifted, but he doesn't have the all around game of Heatley just yet.
What are you basing this on. I didn't see too many Atlanta games last year, but the ones that I did, both were pretty horrible defensively. I've seen Atlanta fans post that since Hartley came on board though, that Kovalchuk had improved defensively, while Heatley continued at the same rate. I'm inclined to listen to fans who watch the two play on a regular basis.
