    Heatley To Boston?

    Alright, well it's the offseason and as many of us (should) know, Dany Heatley has asked to be traded. Now, there are many teams that will be on the market for Heatley, but I think the Bruins could also be in that hunt.

    There are two major scenarios that I see happening in where Heatley could be wearing the black and gold in the future.

    Thoughts?

    PLEASE NO, this would be such a bad move for the Bs. guy has a huge cap hit and didn't really put up great numbers last year. The sens have asked for Phil Kessel and Patrice Bergeron in return....NO THANKS

    Re: Heatley To Boston?

    I don't like Heatley coming here, for several reasons.
    First the cap hit he'd have against players who are more team oriented, such as Savard Ryder and Bergeron.
    Second and I said this in a different thread, but YOU DON'T TRADE WITHIN YOUR DIVISION.
    Third Boston's not even on the list of teams Heatley would accept a trade to, most likely because of the second reason. He wants to get out of Ottawa but Bryan Murray still holds all the cards.
    Fourth because of what you would have to give up. While the first scenario in the link Pezell04X posted is more likely it still isn't likely. If Kessel was shipped to Colorado they wouldn't move Hedjuk with him, he's still too valuable to be considered a cap dump. They could get a second rounder or even as high as a late first rounder to whoever has the most cap room and needs veteran scoring.
    Even if that trade went through who's to say Murray would take Hedjuk Bergeron and the 25th. The combined salaries are nearly $9 million, and Murray's trying to get rid of Heatley before his $4 million bonus comes into effect. Also with Hedjuk's age and Bergeron's concussion history the appeal is minimal. The move would look good on paper but Murray would be crucified unless Bergeron's career turns around next season.

    Re: Heatley To Boston?

    No way. His contract is way to high and he cares more about himself than he does the team. It isn't worth trading several good players for his ego

    Re: Heatley To Boston?

    There is no way Heatly will ever come to Boston. Pc has bigger fish to fry in trying to get Hunwick, Bitz and Kessel signed then to worry about a disgrautalled non team player like Heatly. This should not even be discussed given he will not be traded to a team in his own division and his cap space. The Bruins are very quiet in signing their own RFA's and that bothers me concerding the Draft is close and the RFA deadline is coming July 1. Maybe PC has a good reason to wait but the clock is ticking and could there be something in the works.  We will see in the next few weeks, he could be trying to fix what we need to get to the next level or just creat cap space.

    Why would they trade him within the division? Makes no sence.

    Re: Heatley To Boston?

    not to cause an argument, but I read this at another hockey website I go to:

    Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports Senators winger Dany Heatley has given general manager Bryan Murray a wishlist of 10 teams to be traded to. The Los Angeles Kings, New York Rangers, San Jose Sharks, Detroit Red Wings, Chicago Blackhawks, Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins were among the clubs submitted.

    Re: Heatley To Boston?

    As far as anyone asking if anybody wants him here.. the answer is yes. THe POTENTIAL everyone talks about with Kessel is the player that Heatley is. You dream that PK becomes a Heatly caliber player. And in case anyone forgot, he is an old linemate of Savvy.
    Having said that, no way in hell does he actually end up here.

    Re: Heatley To Boston?

    Far from soft, look at his teeth. He is a proven goal scorer on a team that has hit the skids and far too many injuries, yet he continues to score. 130 goals last 3 years, Kessel 66 last 3.
     He is a player that likes to win and Ott is moving away from this and only has the top line and nothing else, hence the exodus of Chara, Redden, Corvo proven defencemen and many others. I would love to see him in the slot receiving from Savard.  Great PP with him reunited with Sav and Chara and PJ gone to the bench, minors or who cares.
    He is very costly at this time but Ott will become desperate, be nice to see the final bid for him and what it would cost us. I would not like to see Kessel go, but he is no Heatley yet if he ever even becomes that good.

    Greatest Of All Time !

    Bloggers are by and large morons.

    This reminds me of all the Hossa talk last year. When there's nothing to talk about, know-nothing bloggers invent something and post it on a message  board to p*mp their blogs.

    Could Heatley come to Boston? Anything's possible. It is even worth speculating about at this point? Hell no.

    First of all, shut up.

    Heatley coming to Boston is something that can be done under the scenarios given. Whether it will or not (which it probably wont) remains to be seen. Also, Boston is on Heatley's short list of acceptable teams to be traded to. It is always worth speculating because this is the team that we (as fans) love.

    Instead of trying to put down people who have an opinion that differs from yours, that looks at a different direction than you do or even (GASP) goes against something you believe in doesn't make them morons.

    If you're talking about my blog, well it's a fan blog, so it will be incredibly biased. I made that known right from the beginning.

    But your point on speculating about things that haven't, and may not happen, its ludicrous.

    OK EVERYONE, THIS GUY DOESN'T WANT ANYONE TO TALK ABOUT SPECULATION. PLEASE DON'T SPECULATE ABOUT THE UPCOMING DRAFT, PLEASE DON'T TALK ABOUT THE RUMORS RE: PHIL KESSEL, PLEASE DON'T TALK ABOUT SEASON PROJECTIONS, PLEASE JUST SIT HERE AND BE QUIET FOR HIS SAKE.

    What do you care about "here"? You posted links to your own blog in your advertisement of an opening post.

    My point, which you missed, is that any dolt can take the thinnest piece of materiel and post a blog with no insight at all, about a situation that has only the smallest chance of happening. And all it takes is the tiniest scrap of "potential" for someone to show up on a message site for one purpose: to shout "Hey, check out my blog!" and post a link to what is essentially Bruins Fan Fiction 99.999% of the time.

    I didn't say "don't speculate". There are lots of things that the Bruins are addressing that are much higher on the food chain than any acquisition of Dany Heatley is, and discussions about them would be a great deal more grounded in reality.

    Re: Heatley To Boston?

    14+ Mil to 2 players Chara and Heatley ahhh.....no! That would devastate the Bruins like it did to Tampa which meant no more cups after there first one for the Bolts.

    If PC pulls the trigger on this one then you can kiss Savvy, Lucic and Wheeler good bye after next year. PC is thinking of many cups not just one! Building...


    Draft day just 2 days away tick tock tick tock...Don't worry i''m addicted to Hockey like Jameson but i'm not going to put a draft ticker on here! Jeesh!

    This A-Hole quit on a team that paid  him big dollars. Would you want him on the Bruins. No thanks. Over paid one way player on a Ottawa team that had lots of skill and never won nothing. He is a waste of space.

    Re: Heatley To Boston?

    I live in Ottawa and the people here have been severly critical of him and his actions. The Sens coach basically asked him to be more of a team player during the season. He balked. Coach reduced his ice time, including 1st unit PP time trying to make him more accountable to the team. (It's nice if your better players look out for the team as much as if not more than themselves).  He is a very talented player but does not seem to fit the mold of the type of player the Bruins management wants. Thankfully they want accountable players all pulling in one direction. I believe that this has played a big part in the Bruins success of the last couple of seasons. Why go backwards.

    Re: Heatley To Boston?

    I was just poking around on the net again and I found this.

    http://www.canada.com/Bonus+money+slows+Heatley+trade+talk/1727254/story.html

    Bonus money slows Heatley trade talk.


    OTTAWA - Though Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray would like to trade star winger Dany Heatley before the NHL draft starts on Friday, there are four million reasons why that might not happen. Specifically, the $4- million US bonus due Heatley on July 1.

    Several league executives contacted Tuesday said they've heard that a number of teams interested in Heatley will not make an offer until after July 1 to avoid paying the bonus.

    The risk of trying to get Heatley at a discount, of course, is that he might be gone by then. Several teams have already spoken to Murray and it appears as if at least one is getting close to being serious, so Murray may not get stuck.

    However, he is nonetheless in a tough spot.

    Once the Senators pay the signing bonus, the money is gone. Under the collective bargaining agreement, teams can't trade money, which means Murray couldn't ask the team that takes Heatley for part of the bonus money back.

    However, Murray could increase his asking price, which is what several agents expect would happen. Murray would ask for another player, for at least partial compensation. Whether he'll get what he's asking for is, of course, another question.

    The guy can score, but he's a pain in the a** and would be a huge downer to the great chemistry the team has now. I do see Kessel going somewhere though.
