Can’t You Remember?

With each passing day, I think I better understand just why Dany Heatley stayed silent for so long. It’s cause every time he opens his mouth, he appears worse and worse.

Today, he gave us this gem (hat tip to the Illegal Curve guys): “I love playing in Canada. I think there were some Canadian teams on the list that I gave the Senators earlier in the summer.”

Wait. You demanded a trade, you identified the teams you wanted to go to, and now you can’t remember them? You think there were some Canadian teams on the list? Maybe Jim Balsillie’s Make It Seven campaign made it confusing for you?

Ok, Dany, seriously, let’s do the math. There are the 30 teams in the leagues. Six of them are Canadian. You’re on one of them, so you can only go to five other ones. Reports suggest that you had a list of about a half-dozen teams.

Now, one doesn’t have to be a brilliant engineer or a ven-diagram specialist to remember the breakdown of that data. This reminds me of that scene where Indiana Jones chastises his dad for not recalling critical information in his Holy Grail diary:

Indy: “Can’t you remember?”

Henry: “I wrote them down in my diary so I wouldn’t HAVE to remember.”

So maybe that’s it. Dany probably scrawled the six or so teams down on the back of a receipt or napkin, but he left that in his Ottawa home. Once he’s done with this whole Olympic camp, he’ll dig through his kitchen drawers to see if he could find that list. He might even remember that Edmonton was, in fact, on his list.
