ARRey sez: I hate to say it 'cause I like the Heater and have been a fan since his days in Madison, but the best line for him at this point is the unemployment line.

Hope the drop to the fourth line compels Heater to get going. As of this time, it is the only line he should be skating on. He is a big boy, healthy, not that old and has a great history of contributions to teams that he has played for. Still trying to figure out how his performance has dropped to the level that he has shown this year. Sad to watch this quick decline.

One of coach Yeo's "must correct" tag lines was "be strong on the puck." That IS NOT Dany at all this season. He has to be running out of opportunities soon. I'd take Haula over Heater at this point, but I'm not the coach.

I completely agree with ToddW. Anyone who is willing to hustle should be played instead of Heatley at this point.
