I would love to see Heatley come out and have a big year. I don't know why he catches so much flak. He's a great goal scorer and can be again. Let's go Heater!

Not having Heatley and Pominville hurt quite a bit last year, obviously. Will be nice to have them both healthy and to have the likes of Coyle and Zucker for an entire season. DROP THE PUCK............

We all hope Heatley has a good year, but where was this motivation the past three years? Why does it take a "contract year" to get some athletes to try and improve?

Great attitude. Excited to see Heatley battle back. This reminds me of something similar Anti Miettenin said after the 08 season. Really inspirational stuff.

Not sure why all the negativity around Heater. If played out to a full season a year ago, Heater, Parise and Pominville all would have cracked the 25-goal mark. The last 4 full seasons the Wild has had three players hit exactly 25 goals in a season (Bruno, Lats and Nolan). Playing to a full season, i look to see Parise, Heatley and Pominville all pass the 25-goal mark. Add in the fact that Coyle and Zucker should be adding much needed help offensively, along with the potential of Nino and Granlund and i think the Wild's offense will be vastly improved from a season ago with the potential be the deepest group of scoring forwards the organization has ever had.

How can you take what he says seriously? He played lazy last season and was afraid (or did not care) to get into a battle for the puck. Talk is cheap my boy!!

We also need solid, healthy goaltending. It's Yeo's responsibility to hold players & coaches accountable. Put down the water bottle, get rid of Stoner and start coaching.
