There's a lot of talk about buying out Heatley's contract. I think it's an overreaction.

Heatley was our top scorer last year, he's the #3 point scorer this year (#2 for goals), and his contract only has 1 year left.

The guy definitely isn't worth 7.5 mil, but we have a bunch of cap space opening up next year, so it's not really a concern. And there's a strong chance that Heatley's numbers will go up once the team develops more chemistry. It's worth the small risk to hold onto him for the rest of his contract.

Get Heatley an aggressive personal trainer, and trade away some of the many 3rd liners we have instead.
