So I've been thinking about something. The Heatley trade in the makings.
From what I understand, Heatley and coach Clouston got together at season's end (does that mean January SLC?) a few weeks ago to discuss the sniper's role on the team. Apparently they disagreed on what that would be but, in good faith, they agreed to meet again after the World Championships.
When they did, they were no closer to coming to terms.
Um, I'm a bit confused about this one. HIS ROLE ON THE TEAM? Heatley scores 40-50 yearly now.
2005–06 Ottawa Senators 82 50 53 103
2006–07 Ottawa Senators 82 50 55 105
2007–08 Ottawa Senators 71 41 41 82
2008–09 Ottawa Senators 82 39 33 72
So here's what I'm thinking. Here's what this meeting shoulda sounded like.
Clouston: Hey Dany, gotta sec?
Dany: Sure thing.
Clouston: Look Dany, I just wanted to discuss your role with the team next year.
Clouston: Just score like between 40 to 50 goals.
Clouston: K have a nice summer.
Dany: K bye.
Have fun replacing one of the best scorers in the league, Clouston (to be read in Seinfeld hello Newman voice)
