He's tired of being being a disappointment in the playoffs.

He won't have to worry about that in Minny.

Haha yeah the Minnesota fans won't be jumping on his back for not producing in the playoffs that's for sure...

San Jose got worse, but it won't affect them vs. Detroit since Heatley is usually a non-factor anyways against us.

A soft euro for a guy who plays like a soft euro come playoff time.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

Havlat was a beast against the Wings, though IIRC.

I agree with you, though. Not sure why everyone is saying San Jose got much better. Burns is good, but they lose a 30-40 goal scorer in Heatley and a clutch role guy in Divin Setoguchi. Havlat is good, but not as good as Heatley.

Easy fix to that..

Simple. Heatley is happy that he can go somewhere he can be the Hero.

Minnesota has had scary good goaltending since Roloson/Fernandez. With Backstrom/Harding, they're still scary good in the net. Defenceman are still at least half-assed, even with Burns gone.

Havlat hasn't been the same player since Kronwall ended him. Perhaps playing with Thornton/Pavelski/Marleau will turn him around.

looking now for Minnesota to roll up this year in the still-weak Northwest. I think they take Nashville's traditional 7th or 8th spot this year.

What was great about that series in regards to Havlat was that the Wings didn't ease up on him at all after that Havsplat hit. Stuart got him really good in the next game. It was awesome.

i've always kind of liked Havlat, even when he was on the Blackhawks. But I must say, my rooting for him cannot continue with him on the Sharks. As a player I've always thought he has great potential but injuries have always short-circuited that. Kind of a gamble for SJ but I can see him fitting in there nicely, unfortunately.

Why isn't Kenny making a push for guys like these? I mean im not against what he is doing but i think it would be awesome to see another talent come in via trade, and perhaps we will see one. :S


The Wings don't have value like this to trade, and we also wouldn't pay 7.5 for Heatley, it's a bad deal.

IMHO Havlat should've gotten a 2 min minor delay of game pen for "napping on the ice".

So the Sharks have dumped Setoguchi and Heatly and gotten in return Havlat and Brent Burns. Are you kidding me? IMO they have gotten worse not better.
Do or do not. There is no try
