Heatley Just Happy To Be A Shark

from Dan Rosen of NHL.com,

Dany Heatley is moving on and loving life in San Jose, remaining unmoved by the public opinion that his reputation has taken a serious hit after a tumultuous and controversial summer that included trade demands and trade rejections.

Heatley’s approach may seriously irk the passionate fans in Ottawa and Edmonton, but that’s not what he is trying to do, nor is it something he even cares about at this point. His focus, plain and simple, is on helping the Sharks win games and performing well enough to hopefully get a call from Hockey Canada sometime in December.

“I don’t know if I needed a fresh start, but after the summer it was nice that something happened,” Heatley, who was dealt from Ottawa to San Jose on Sept. 12, told NHL.com. “If you want to call it a fresh start that’s fine, but it’s not so much that I had a down year and needed to go somewhere else to have a fresh start. There were issues that I felt made it best that we go our separate ways. All I can say is I’m happy to be a Shark.”
