I like this as a Sens fan...if Heatley can stay healthy.

And, yes...Heatley IS that ugly.

The Senators are a much better team now then they were yesterday. Great deal for the Sens...

Hey, I like Heatley but I don't know how you can say that this trade makes the Sens a better team in the immediate future. Heatley certainly could put up similar numbers to Hossa in the future, but in the NHL and international games Heatley has played since his car accident he hasn't looked quite like the Heatley of old. Meanwhile Hossa had a great year in international play and looked to be a very safe bet to be one of the league's top scorers playing with the Sens this year.

Now, in the long term this could be a winning trade for Ottawa. This trade frees up some much needed cap space for the team and Heatley could very well put up Hossa type numbers sooner or later, along with the fact that he has some more grit than Hossa. That all being said, it's still a gamble that Heatley can bounce back, against a safer bet in Hossa. When you throw in the fact that Ottawa also traded Greg de Vries (Who I thought was overrated but was still a part of Ottawa's defence) and if anything, Ottawa has gotten weaker in the short team from this trade, not MUCH better.

If Ottawa can use some of the money they save to keep both Redden and Chara, then the Sens WILL win this trade big time.
