Well I don't think anybody in the world saw that coming. Crazy!
The Bad: Heatley has scored more goals than Martin Havlat, and if he has a rebound year then the Sharks could regret trading away a major part of their offense.
The Good: Havlat is faster and better defensively. He's also a couple million dollars cheaper, which is going to be important as Doug Wilson tries to re-sign guys like Burns and Couture after this next season. Also, if Heatley continues on a downward trend (which Doug Wilson has historically been pretty good at anticipating) and Havlat flourishes alongside more talented line-mates (a definite possibility) then this could turn out to be a stroke of genius.
The Final Word:
@CopperandBlue What a great deal for San Jose #Sharks
I'm reassured, and you should be too. I can't wait for the season to start.
