Swap of Ex-Senators

Catching up on the news via the newspaper this morning, and came across this.

In the NHL news this morning, the San Jose Sharks dealt right winger Dany Heatley to the Minnesota Wild for Martin Havlat. While both players are ex-Ottawa Senators, the circumstances of their leaving Ottawa were so different. Havlat left Ottawa after the Senators wouldn't pay him what he felt he deserved after several injury-plagued seasons, and signed a long-term deal with the Wild. He's had three really good, healthy years in Minnesota, and did really well. Heatley, on the other hand, wanted out of Ottawa for various reasons and forced the Senators to make a deal with San Jose, rather than Edmonton, a trade that didn't prove to be to Ottawa's benefit. Ain't life wonderful?

I'm really pleased for Martin Havlat, one of favourite Senators of all time (he used to be called "Mach 9" while he was here, as he wore the Number 9 jersey, and had and still has speed to burn), and hope he does really well for San Jose this coming year. I'll be keeping a close eye on Havlat and the Sharks this year, as well as the Ottawa Senators of course, so am looking forward to the NHL season to come.

As for Heatley, nothing to say at all.
