Here Comes Heatley

from Robert Tychkowski of the Edmonton Sun, Injury, meet insult.

If the beaten and bedraggled Edmonton

Oilers can lift their faces out of the muck long enough, they’ll look up and see Dany Heatley tonight.

The same Dany Heatley who held the organization’s pride hostage for 30 uncomfortable days last summer. The same Dany Heatley who has a league-leading 18 goals for the league-leading San Jose Sharks.

The Oilers took a terrible PR beating for publicly kowtowing to a guy who never wanted to come here, for letting their own guys twist in the wind for a month while giving a petulant winger the keys to their dignity.

And now, as they stumble around rock bottom searching for their fifth win in 17 games, along comes the prima donna on the first place team who said ‘I told you so.’

Perfect.

This is like running into an ex-girfriend a month after she dumps you—she’s holding hands with a Tom Cruise-looking fighter pilot and you’re asking if they’d like fries with that.
