I always laugh when hockey fans point to the number of goals someone has and expects that to hold up as an argument for how well they are playing. Lots more to the game than standing at the goal mouth and having someone else create plays while you just hack away after someone feeds you the puck.
Heatley has always been slow and his game has always primarily been around the net. He's obviously past his prime but the guy isn't a problem.
