Trade Benefits Both Players

from Phil Coffey of NHL.com,
If you rummage around the bag of sports cliches long enough, you pull out the one that says "the best trades are the ones that help both teams." Well, in the case of Tuesday's big-time swap between the Atlanta Thrashers and Ottawa Senators, the trade -- sending Dany Heatley to the Senators for forward Marian Hossa and defenseman Greg de Vries -- not only helps both teams, but two of the principal players involved in the deal. Heatley got the change in address he was looking for and Hossa nailed down the long-term contract he was seeking.
