I really love it that I'm not Bryan Murray right now. When everyone's punching bag in the Nation's Capital is Jason Spezza, Dany Heatley comeso ut of the dark and demands a trade. That's ultimate douchebaggery. Remember, Heatley signed a 6 year contract 2 years ago. Oh goody goody goody.
I am betting everyone money that there are 28 teams in the NHL who want the Heater. Detroit isn't in a position to get him cap wise but everyone else is capable of getting him. After the news broke out earlier today, I talked to some sources who said the main teams in play for him are the Colorado Avalanche, Calgary Flames, Vancouver Canucks, Pittsburgh Penguins, St.Louis Blues, Anaheim Ducks, San Jose Sharks, and finally, imagine this, the Toronto Maple Leafs. To tell you the truth, I wouldn't be surprised at all if Burkie down south wants him. Of course, he's a goal scorer and well, Toronto desperately needs a goal scorer. Creepily, the Maple Leafs actually have possible trade assets. Here's my rumor. Dany Heatley and Alex Auld for Tomas Kaberle, Niklas Hagman, and a 1st round pick in 2010. However, I think his hometown is his prefered choice. Oh my god, is Phaneuf comign here? Exciting times Sens fans, exciting times. Breaks the silence though. No Tuesday Night Rumors tonight, but I'll have a post tomorrow.
