Anybody watch the replay of game 5 of Stanley Cup finals Ducks vs Ottawa 2007 on NHL network? Not a very good game for Heatley. 20 minutes of ice time, no shots on goal. The coach changed up all the lines, so he wasn't playing with Spezza and Alfredsson.
- Hounds the puck even in traffic.
- Goes to the front of the net.
- Very good at keeping the puck in traffic (excellent hand/eye coordination).
- Very average acceleration, so a limited fore-checker.
- Kept getting his shot blocked (Ducks were watching him).
- Gets knocked off his skates quite a bit.
- Surprising lack of urgency for a do or die game.
Yes it was just one game, but disappointing irregardless.
Dam I missed that. Thanks for the scouting report, sounds like he was born to be a shark. We should've gotten somebody who can raise their game in the p/o's like a Jonathon Cheechoo type
