I was never a huge Heatley fan, but my views of him are worse as the days go by. His public trade demands was not the right way to go about it, handcuffing the Senators a bit. I let that side, and chalked it up to a bad decision. But if he vetoes this trade to Edmonton, I’ll not be a fan of his at all.
Now, he hasn’t officially vetoed the trade, but he has put it on hold as he thinks about it. If he rejects the trade, I think it looks bad on his character. Demanding a trade, then rejecting that request because you don’t like the destination. I wouldn’t want that type of player in my dressing room. There’s no questioning Heatley’s talent, but selfishness can hurt team chemistry.
