Dany Heatley Traded to San Jose – Blackhawks Fans Can Rest Easy

Despite rumors flying all over this morning – it sounds like Dany Heatley has finally been traded. For real this time.

As GracesWinstons said earlier – Darren Dreger of TSN said on twitter that it had become a two-horse race for Heatley. And unfortunately the Blackhawks were rumored to be one of those horses. Ultimately it seems San Jose won the race – sending Milan Michalek, Jonathan Cheechoo and Second Round pick for Ottawa’s left winger and a Fifth Round pick. That’s actually pretty steep for a guy who Ottawa couldn’t wait to get rid of.

So now Heatley gets what he wanted all along – a first round playoff exit next year.

UPDATE: ¬†Here’s a look at how the two sides are taking it – Fear The Fin is pretty excited about the trade. ¬†Getting Heatley does make the Sharks an even more dangerous team.

Silver Seven Sens are just happy it’s all over but aren’t sure if they got full value for Heatley.
