At least Jarick is implying a physical flaw and not a character flaw, which makes more sense but I still don't agree with it.

re-signing is a question for later, after a few of our young forwards have had another year to mature. buying out is just dumb unless you are very confident you can replace his offense. TOI per goal for Parise is 6 minutes more than Heatley, and Parise gets half a minute more PP time per night, so Heatley isn't a PP specialist any more than Parise is.
I would really like to see the comparison between production with Coyle and production with Heatley. Im assuming the latter would destroy the first.

This is interesting..but he can't skate?? We should scratch him for Konopka. Yeo should bench his A@@. He's washed up. Has no heart. Hands slowed down.

Oh yeah and Parise is god. Heatley just scores cause he gets lucky. He doesn't have any talent left. He's done.

^was the sentiment of the Wild faithful before Heatley had his 2 goal game and now very good games to back that up. Now he gets praise from the same people about his effort and back checking...which they wouldn't have noticed had he not scored the goals.

"When he scores he is god...if he doesn't score he was brutal."-typical Wild poster last month
