I'm sorry, but Dany Heatley has been absolutely awesome for the Senators this postseason. He's gone into the high traffic areas, scored goals, made some pretty passes and helped play defense in the final minute of one goal games.
Hossa, so far, has proven to be a great regular season player. That's it. Can that change? Of course it can, but he has to change his attitude when it comes to postseason play. You can't score the same type of goals or make the same type of plays. There's a reason why he was never great in the playoffs in Ottawa, even when they went to the ECF as he went without a goal in the last 10 games.
Heatley, on the other hand, has raised his game, and with another couple of assists tonight, he leads the league in playoff scoring as Ottawa is up 2-0 and only a couple of wins away from the finals.
Give the guy some credit. You can dislike him as a person all you want, but he's one hell of a hockey player and he's proven that this year.
I mean, Heatley is just 5 points away from eclipsing Hossa's career playoff point totals, and he'll do it in about 23 games while it took Hossa 55.
