It's true, Heatley (and Seto btw) got some minor surgeries after the season. Just check Russo's blogs archive.

Wild forward Dany Heatley, who was flying to the Twin Cities on Sunday, July 1, for a checkup on his surgically repaired knee, said it feels "better than it has in four or five years," and is anticipating a better 2012-13 season after a chance to recover.

I think his value to the Wild is far greater than what we can get in a trade for him.

Besides, he is not just an All-Star. He is THE ****ing All-Star

Completely agree. I didn't really become a hardcore Wild follower up until a couple years ago so I don't even know what 30 goals feels like. I've been a fan since around the lockout, but never anywhere as close as I have been the last couple years.

I'm down for keeping the all star. I could see him back in the all star game again this year. He's one of the best goal scores of the decade. Keep.

Heatley isn't going anywhere. He may bust out with all of the new talent we have.

Assuming he can bounce back a bit and put up a couple 55-60 pt (or maybe even more) seasons, I'm all for bringing him back. If Coyle can take over the role of 1st line RW three years from now, I'd love to see Heater take Butch's place on the 2nd line with FBJ and Seto.

Parise - Koivu - Coyle
Heater - Granlund - Seto

If Heatley isn't just blowing smoke about his knees, which theres no reason to presume he is since saying the knee feels better than it has in some years actually places expectations on yourself, we could see the player that found his way to SJ. 35-40 goals. Never underestimate what a positive attitude and outlook has on ones health. If he thinks the surgery went well, and it feels good, and has a MUCH improved team to play with with Parise and Suter on it, he might just bring all that energy in the form of scoring.

For for real, can we just PLEASE get Yeo to put him in position to get one timers or just big blasts. please.

Considering Parise does his best work behind and around the net, not in the slot or circles, yes.

If granlund gets heater to he's wing, then oh boy, they'e gonna score. Granlund is used to give amazing backdoor passes and onetimer chances to players who are worse or equal scorers with miettinen.

I'm so friggin' tired on seeing MiG putting an amazing saucer cross pass through the whole PK unit on a PP only so the shooter on the other side either misses the net or shoots it in the chest on the goalie. GRRR

Heatley is in a great position this year. I thnk Koivu and Parise are two great players who will compliment him incredibly well.

And if he finds himself on the 2nd line, Granlund and he will be awesome!

That may be one of the few upsides to missing the playoffs. Which Heater never did in SJ. He was obviously aware he had an issue, and likely part of the calculation in whether/when to address it was having enough recovery time to be ready for camp.

Being on the wrong side of 25 goals probably inspired him to get the surgery done a bit too. He doesn't wear it on his face quite as obviously as Gaborik (Gaby probably can't pleasure a woman if he hasn't scored a goal this week), but he's a sniper and he knows it clap your hands.

I would never want to see Heatley traded purely for the shots he has to constantly take at the Gophers and their fans.

He could be back to 35-40 goals or he could be blowing smoke. But he's a solid player and locker room guy.
