No. Im over it. He did what was best for him. He was able to negotiate a clause into his contract and it came in handy for him. The only thing I dont like is that he just should have said no in the first place, but that is more on Tambo than anything else. If someone doesnt accept playing for your team right away, why on earth would you wait? Doesnt make a lick of sense.

I don't know if this was posted yesterday but the latest Movember update is worth watching to lighten the mood around here, Strudwick and O'Sullivan are hilarious: http://oilers.nhl.tv/team/console.jsp?catid=5&id=52619

I put to the fans. I personally don't care, but I know there will be boo birds there going after Heater. Not that there is anything wrong with that, that's what you get for being a professional athlete.

I know eh? I think she's gotta be the hottest woman in the hockey media. I wonder if anyone on the team has tried picking her up

I say cheer Heatley. Because of his refusal, we ended up with an elite power forward, a solid shut down defenseman and a young speedy player starting to show more as this season goes on.

IMO Tychkowski sticks the landing on his 'awkward' article with this:

Quote:
Boo Heatley?

Take a look around ... it's pretty hard to argue with his decision.

And don't take it personally. It's not Edmonton.

It's the Oilers.

The city has taken a lot of unnecessary lumps lately when in reality it's the team, not the town, that is so very unappealing right now.

Edmonton is a great city in which to be a winner. But this is a bad club and it's been a bad club for going on four years. They were 25th overall in 2006-07, 19th overall in 2007-08 and 21st overall in 2008-09.

So why are we surprised that they're 25th right now? Or that high-end talent doesn't want to sign here?

Daryl Katz can go chase all the quick-fix, pie-in-the-sky names he wants -- Heatley, Hossa, Jagr -- but until they fix the fundamental mess, nobody's coming.

If you're looking to boo somebody, boo the guys who created this environment in the first place.
Good on him for saying what needs to be said.

The Heatley non-trade has turned out great for the Oilers. This team would be absolutely horrendous without Penner and Smid this year.

The media has been calling out management for two years now and nothing has changed. Robert can yell from the rooftops all he wants.
