Are Dany & Doug Insane? Heatley Introduction Rant

Just caught the San Jose welcomefest for Dany Heatley with GM Doug Wilson (to watch click here). Neither of them seem to think it was a big deal. Heatley said he has a rather nice summer actually and Wilson see's nothing wrong with his character, even defending him. I just don't get it. Clearly he didn't do a good thing and even if trade requests happen all the time as Wilson suggested (which I know to be true), Dany didn't handle it very well all summer. Plus isn't saying other people do it to as a defence pretty much the equivalent of I know you are but what am I? That's like saying I murdered someone but what's the big deal, it happens all the time. I'm hardly the only person who has ever killed anyone, so how does that make me a bad guy? First he avoided everyone and then sounded like a selfish, spoiled, stereotypical athlete when he did finally open his mouth. The way he handled himself definitely wasn't ok Dany or Doug sorry.

The real thing that pissed me off, was in the end, he got to go to exactly where he wanted to. He screwed over a franchise (we got 70 cents on the dollar back) and got precisely what he demaded since he asked to be traded, a trip to San Jose.

Since the trade, Bryan Murray has said multiple times that he had to trade him after meeting him with him last week. He could see in his eyes it would be a problem, which meant Dany would have screwed our team oever even more. He has also said that the San Jose deal was the only one available. But wait, didn't Dany say it was about options, nothing against Edmonton.

Oh wait, that was just another lie in the summer of lies, from a liar. I'm sure we will never know the real reason why he wanted out but I'm sure it was something he did, since we have seen his true character now and it isn't pretty.

It's fitting he is now a San Jose Shark, a team that on the surface, always seems to be elite, but in the end, is mediocore and a perennial loser. Just like Dany.
