Heatley is a .46GPG guy in the regular season and a .23GPG guy in the playoffs. He does have decent offensive production in the playoffs overall, but heavily slanted towards assists, and you're not getting half as much out of Denis Savard as you could if he is being asked to do everything because he's a better playmaker than finisher himself (although still good).
I think this is nitpicking. Heatley has found a way to produce in the playoffs. The sample sizes are too small here for us to get too caught up in exactly how he has done it.
