Heater Appreciation

When I saw Heater score 4 goals (or was it more) during an all-star game in the early 2000s, I became a fan. Then came the incident in Atlanta. Then came the incident in Ottawa.

When he was traded here, I thought that we were getting someone who could score goals but was someone that was not going to show up. I was worried that his reputation (by the media) could be detrimental to the Wild locker room.

Out of all the ups and downs of this season, I have to give props to Heater. He has shown up as much as anyone else, if not more. Is he still a 40-50 goal scorer? No. Is he past his prime? Most likely. But, he still has a hell of a shot, good hockey sense, and has not done anything to lead us to believe that he is a cancer to a hockey team.

I hope that health and more skill next year will allow Heater to get to 30-35 goals and 70 points, expectations that I do not think are unrealistic.
