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.
Semi Disagree..I think Heatley has shown he is a good fit on that line. Just needs to keep his consistency. I would be VERY surprised to see that line split up the rest of the season.

Its the only way to use Heatley properly and he is a good fit on that line. When they play well they are a very good top line in this league.
