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.
Exactly..there is no rush to get rid of him. And with a 7.5 Cap hit thats not an option anyways. He's a good player to have. Maybe not for that price but the price doesn't hurt us right now anyways.
