Really not as bad for Ottawa as most claim. Heatley was going to suck for them anyways so instead of him they get Frolov, a great young forward, and Stoll, another valuable forward who can help round out their top 6.
Frolov and Stoll for Heatley? Wow. Just wow. I can't believe Murray is that desparate. Heatley really wanted to hurt the Sens and he really did it.
My how the mighty have fallen
Now it's Alfie and Spezz's team.
I don't think it's a bad trade considering their backs were against the wall. Frolov IMO will be among the top 10 goal scorers if he plays the whole year with the Sens. Together with Stoll, they will more than cover the goal and point production of Heatley.
I don't see what LA gets out of this, Marleau alone isn't an upgrade on Frolov and Stoll.
Agreed. Heatley for Marleau is a steal for San Jose. If someone is stealing, someobne is being stolen from, so there must be more to this, unless LA is just looking to free up $3.6 million next year, but that seems useless to me.
I think blackmarketrobs thread should be re-opened so we can all thank him for breaking a story and the naysayers can all backtrack/apologize. I hope Frolov/Stoll are useless in Ottawa and the Sens stay a useless team for aloooooooooooooooong time.
He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 1963–64, 1966–67 and 1969–70 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 1970–71 and 1972–73. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era. He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 1970–71, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
