Time to Put the Big Boy Pants on Dany
After a grueling summer of NHL media not knowing the full synopsis of the Dany Heatley saga, the man in the spotlight finally spoke.
The German-born right winger informed the Canadian media for the first time since asking for a trade in Kelowna, British Columbia about his situation. Dany stated that his desires of leaving Ottawa have not changed.
"When I signed in Ottawa two years ago, I felt it was to be an integral part of the team," Heatley said. "Over the last two years and more recently over the past year, I feel my role was diminished. This past season, it diminished a lot more.”
Dany went on to say that this is a “straight hockey decision” and he did not have any harsh feelings toward the city of Ottawa. I am sure that will help GM Bryan Murray sleep at night.
