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
NHLers ask for trades all the time, and usually because they aren't getting the ice time they would like or for personal reasons. He asked for a trade and stated clearly that if it doesn't work out he will play in Ottawa.
End of Story.

" Tha yahoos are baying again. Dany keeps silent , you dorks are all over him. He finally talks, same crap from the wannabes. Dany ain't the problem. It's Murray and his giant ego and small talent. Whether Dany stays or goes, the Sens won't be in smelling range of the playoffs with the current management and coaching staff. I just hope Dany brings back the gold, gets traded and comes back to help sink the Sens. Poetic justice for the crap he's taken from Ottawa."
Can you believe that piece of idiotic sophistry? Either this dork - to use his own term - is a drinking buddy of Heatley's when he's in town, or the head of the local butt-kisser's society.
Just eaxctly how is this Murray's fault? Don't get me wrong, I'm no fan of Murray's and can list a dozen reasons why he should go, but he had nothing to do with this situation, other than make Heatley a millionaire.
That's the kind of "fan" who has turned pro sports into a monumental joke.

I am speaking on behalf of the city of Champions.You say you were disappointed with the ice time,with the the situations created on the ice, be it powerplay,shorthanded,special teams.Or what ever the case maybe DANNY COME TO EDMONTON you wont have to worry about all this pittter patter he said she said.If you come to E-Town you will be treated with the utmost respect,and feel the benefits of playing for a high caliber team. Not to mention the coaching staff the players the fans. You will be the difference if we go all the way or continue a 8th place battle with 10 games or less remaining......Dany seriously think about it............how bad do you want to be the man.....?
I bleed copper n blue...
