from Mike Morreale of NHL.com,

NHL.com: Can Dany Heatley return to the player he was in Ottawa, when he produced back-to-back 100-point seasons as the go-to guy?

Yeo: “I’ve had a lot of dialogue with Dany and what I anticipate from him is to bounce back from his so-called down year (64 points in San Jose last season)—at least that’s what everyone keeps saying he had. From what I gather, he still found a way to put a few pucks in the net and I’m expecting him to do the same thing again this season. He’s excited about this opportunity and challenge and I think he’s motivated in terms of the so-called down year and wants to prove he still has a lot of good hockey left in him. More than anything else, he’s really excited to come here and help us take that next step as an organization. I think from management to coaches to players, there’s a lot of optimism to where we think we’re going right now. We have a direction and Dany wants to be a part of that and he wants to help lead us in that direction.”
