'Diminished role' led to Heatley's trade request
Dany Heatley said his "diminished role" with the Ottawa Senators is the biggest reason he asked to be traded.
Far be it for me to say what is in that boy's mind... but I don't know if I believe his reasons for wanting a trade.
He says this time it was "purely hockey"... and that last time it was personal. Personally? I think both are off-ice business, although one has more to do with the return of Ray Emery into the NHL. Yes, I still stand by that particular opinion.
