Every time I watch Heatley get the puck, I watch him lose it right away. Sometimes he might get a pass or a poke so that Parise and Koivu can get it though.

Coyle can cycle coyle can hold onto the puck blah blah blah and what good does that do?? How many points has he put up in the AHL and the NHL playing with elite players and on the PP. What has he done in his time here.

Zero Points.

Until he can outproduce Heatley's 26 goals(which for him is low) then he is not a good replacement for Heatley on the top line.
