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
And Ed, while I certainly can't disagree with your low opinion of Murray, and while I could list a dozen reasons why he should have been dumped, I don't see any connection between his shortcomings and the Heatley situation!
That came to him out of the blue, as it did with everyone else, and I'm sure he did his level best to try and conclude a deal that saw Ottawa not coming out of it holding the shitty end of the stick.
Having said that, I still think he should have been looking at it from the get-go as an opportunity to shed $7.5 million from the cap and use that money to pursue other options. Because next year, when the cap drops significantly, he has 5 RFAs to deal with, among them Lee and Campoli. He's going to need the cash then.

Now we'll hear the spin today, concocted no doubt by his agents - they've had over two months to prepare it!
