the one thing he does that bugs the hell out of me is he will occasionaly make some of the worse pass attempts i've ever seen. I remember his pass got intercepted for a break away goal in overtime a couple months ago and once in a while he will just do horrible drop passes and usually at the worst time. From what i've observed if Danny Heatley didnt have his shot he would be a 3rd line grinder, at best a Holmstrom like player, but luckily he has a top 3 shot in the world imo,the best not counting Russians
I've been super impressed with Heatley on the Sharks. Honestly, he has a rocket of a shot, but I don't think think he's a great skater or passer. But he has that 'sixth sense' that only elite level goal scorers have. He somehow lurks around the net and the puck winds up on his stick more often than not and he usually finishes. Great talent.
