Heatley For Havlat As Sharks And Wild Deal Again

((HT: CSNBayArea))

When San Jose Sharks GM Doug Wilson found an opening to trade post-season-offensively-challenged forward Dany Heatley, Wilson found a dance partner in an old flame- Minnesota Wild GM Chuck Fletcher- the guy whom he just had enough fun with in his Burns-for-Setoguchi deal.

So, now Wilson gets speed in exchange for a confusing amount of talent and head-scratching ineffectiveness...

“Marty is a player that we have had an interest in for a long time,” Wilson said via press release. “He can play either wing and brings creativity and breakaway speed to our group of top-six forwards. We are excited about the versatility he adds to our lineup.”

This comes two years after Heatley demanded a trade out of Ottawa, and before that, the chance for Heatley to start anew leaving Atlanta after all the Dan Snyder ghosts chased him

Here's, what turned out to be, Heatley's exit-exit interview at the end of the season...
