Rick Nash is a better overall player than Heatley. Better skater, more physical, more creative(which this team needs). I like Heatley as well but his best offensive years were in Ottawa playing on a line with Spezza and Alfie, which was arguably the best line in the league at the time. Rick Nash has never played with that type of linemates like Heater has. I would agree that if Nash was in SJ playing with Joe he would put up 40g.
Something Heater never accomplished while he was here
