Kukla's Korner Hockey

from David Pollak of the Mercury News,
“The press this past summer in Canada has been vile,” the elder Heatley said. “They’ve been toxic.”
He talked about a double standard in Ottawa, where nobody seemed troubled in 2005 when the Senators signed forward Marian Hossa to a three-year, $18 million contract and traded him the same day to the Atlanta Thrashers for, coincidentally, Dany Heatley.
“That’s all fine, because that’s business as usual,” Murray Heatley said. “But when a player is not happy in a situation and he asks to get out, it’s ‘Oh, how could he do that, that ungrateful guy. Doesn’t he stick to his word?’ “
