First off, I don't mean for this to be an ongoing topic. As Duff and I discussed, we're not sure if we want Heatley to fail miserably or if we just shouldn't give a crap. In any case, I think it's fun to share/celebrate, if not just for this once, Dany's stats from his first regular season game in a Sharks jersey.
In 21:21 mins of icetime, Heatley registered:
3 shots on goal
and was -3
(AND, the Sharks failed to score on a full 2 minute 5 on 3)
I know it's only one game, but not a great start on a path to Emery's projected 60 goals (or Keith Jones' projected 70!!!). Love these predictions (as a sidenote, the guys at the 6th Sens have some fantastic predictions for the upcoming season, do yourself a favour and enjoy a good read).
Hope you're enjoying your greater role in Cali, Dany. And I hope this is my last post about him until we break down the Olympic roster.
Only one more sleep til OUR season opens!
