After being held pointless in his first four games as a Senator, Milan Michalek has 20 points in 21 games. Obviously those are not Heatley numbers, but it just goes to show you that this trade could have been closer if magician Jonathan Cheechoo could actually perform. It is easy to say now, but the Sens got royally screwed by Heatley. After he declined being traded to the Oilers, which allowed him to receive his $4 million bonus, I would have told him to take a seat in the press box until he plays by our rules.  Obviously that would be difficult because you are sitting your best scorer and not getting anything in return; but Heatley was playing hardball, they should have played back.

There are very few Heatleys in the League, so eventually someone would have been able to give something of more value for him. The Sens did not even get a first round pick in the deal. Gah, I hate Dany Heatley.
