Heatley's the kind of player who will work well as a pure sniper. He can create his own shot, he's a big body in front and will put the puck on net more frequently than anyone this franchise has seen since Marian Gaborik left.

Here's Heatley's remaining contract:

  • 2011-2012: $8M
  • 2012-2013: $6M
  • 2013-2014: $5M
  • 2014-2015: UFA
Heatley's career production: 669 games, 325 goals, 364 assists, 689 points.

For the kind of production Heatley has provided and is projected to provide along side Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Mikko Koivu, Heatley's contract is fantastic.

More information as the details come out, but frankly, it's a move I like, no matter my opinion about Heatley's past. He's a productive player and an offensive threat any time he's on the ice.

So folks, what do you say?
