I don't think anyone denies Heatley can shoot the puck. I know it's been talked about a lot, but I think his lack of speed is holding the 1st line back. Anytime he mishandles the puck, which seems like it happens often, the opposing player beats him to the puck. I think it hurts the break out and our offensive zone pressure. Finding someone to fill that spot will be tough. But if they can get a faster winger, I think the 1st will be more productive. We'll see more chances coming from rushes up the ice and better zone time.
