Sharks Could Use A Hot Heatley

from David Pollak of the Mercury News,

For the highest-paid Shark, it has been a season where production is down and the volume of criticism is up.

Dany Heatley’s two key goals in the Sharks’ 3-1 victory over the Red Wings show his scoring touch has not deserted him. But he wasn’t ready to say Friday whether that Detroit game is a harbinger of what lies ahead.

“Who knows,” he said. “I think it’s just about getting chances, and a couple went in last night. That’s over, and you’ve got to get going tomorrow again.”

Those two goals give Heatley just 22 for the season—third highest on the Sharks, but a figure that puts him on pace for only 27. While that figure marks a successful season for most players, that number is well below the 39 he scored a year ago and an even bigger drop-off from the 45 he averaged before that in four seasons with the Ottawa Senators.
