Combined, Milan Michalek and Jonathan Cheechoo will make a little less money than Dany Heatley this season.
They also have the potential to score a few more goals.
In the eyes of Ottawa-born defenceman Dan Boyle who plays for San Jose, however, it's impossible to determine right now the winner in Saturday's blockbuster deal between the Senators and the Sharks.
Which team do you think won the Heatley trade? Have your say in our forum.
Sharks accept Heatley as is
Loser, San Jose can have you!

Wait till Laraque get's a hold of Lucic. He'll wipe the smiles off both Lucic and Neely's face at the same time.
As for the Heatly trade - if Michalek and Cheechoo play to their potential, Ottawa will be the winners.
Whiners never win.

But cut the crap. So Neil lost a fight - what the fans were doing was acknowledging the fact that he had the guts to take on a guy who outweighs him by about 20 pounds and is simply larger overall.
Lucic is going to do that to a lot of people. And one day he will meet his match. Happens to everybody.
Keep these forums clear of that kind of vitriol this year. Please.

Neil's face was a mess - great to see!!!!!

Maybe it was the media but there didn't seem to be a lot of interest in Heatley. That in itself speaks volumes.
Cheechoo is a one man wrecking crew, just what Ottawa needs.
He can play on my team any day.

PS- Karlsson should be sent to Bingo. He is too green and too light at this point in his carreer.

In both games there were players dressed who may even have trouble making Binghamton, and a couple who will wind upo back in Major Junior.
Had they lost both games by being blown out I'd acknowledge that there might be cause for concern. But both could have gone either way.
The idea here is to start examining line and D make-up - see who can do what among those headed to Bingo so if a call-up becomes necessary the coach has some idea in his mind who, at least, played well enough to earn a shot.
Every spring baseball teams like Pitssburgh and Toronto are at or the near the top. Look where they are as the season draws to a close. Same thing in hockey.

You get to join Joe, Patrick and the rest of the chokers sunning their butts off down south.
No need to win a cup, San Jose knows and cares squat about hockey.
Just bikinis, cool wheels
( something you know first hand about eh ? Nudge, nudge, wink, wink ... ) and the beaches.
Pressure - what pressure.
The only reduced ice you'll
get now is when you call for your next drink straight up!
