I had not seen him in a while when I saw him the first time this year, and in light of his numbers expected Cheechoo II. But I don't think he is that far of from being a steady 25-30 goals scorer kind of. Was a lot more Robitalle in NY than Cheechoo II.
Yeah, I think he is intriguing if the price is like a 7th round pick. At that price, if you you discover that he's only useful as a spare in case a scorer goes down, then whatevs. I'm not interested in paying any sort of price for a rental.

I do admit, I overestimated how much of that one dimension he has left.

Well I think I'm the only poster to show even a lukewarm interest in Heatley, and this doesn't describe me in the least. I don't completely write-off a player if he's not what he used to be in the past, though.
