What you don't understand is that having 3 guys down low battling for pucks is not cohesive to scoring goals. First, if you get beat then the other team is going 3-2 or 4-2 down the ice. 2) Someone needs to float high/stay in front of the net/draw defenders/take up space in front of the net to open up spacing and also if you have all 3 guys cycling no one will be in front of the net too shoot. Unless you want to play a strictly perimeter game.

Heatley is not the problem. He may not be as good of a player as you want him too be, but he is not the reason the team isn't scoring.

This.
