An Interesting Development…?
Just received a message back from a source that indicated the Preds are after Heatley. Seriously after Heatley.
At first I was caught off guard. But the more I considered it, the more it holds merit, albeit, not much.
The Preds remain mired in below average NHL ready talent, and entirely bereft of proven elite skill, at any position outside of defense.
The teams around them all made improvements this off season, while they stood pat.
Having solid prospects, in a less than hockey mad environment, only buys so much slack…and by all accounts, the noose is tightening.
They have the Cap space, they have the assets, and they have the motive.
But do they have the budget, or fortitude, to make a big move.
And of course, would Heatley even acknowledge their existence?
I doubt it.
