I don't mind 55. But the first two years after the lockout Ottawa had a good well rounded defense. I didn't say Spezza was as good of a playmaker, but I don't think moving from a center whose proven to be an all star caliber player for better playmaker is going to make Heatley 10 goals better. You also have to consider the third linemate when Heatley was putting up 50 goals and 100+ points was Alfredsson who was averaged 95 the first two years after the lockout.
I do think Heatley can get back to where he was a few years ago, but saying he's going to be 10 goals better is just ridiculous. Playing with Thornton isn't going to turn him into Ovechkin.
keep him.....he is as good as 07...i have been following him since he left the nhl.....u like my team.?
