The great Heatley bush bestows us with the blessing of a few words today

The great burning Heatley bush bestows us with the blessing of a few words today

Note: this post will be updated later after the Heatley presser is over, and possibly again after Brian Murray’s press conference.

Update: Post has been updated with the actual transcript from the Ottawa Citizen.

Ok, it hasn’t been that long since the last update, but because Dany Heatley always gets to be front page news, and because he gave a press conference about why he hates you (yes, you specifically), and because there’s actually a couple of other news items from around the NHL again, you get this update.

So there seems to be a decent amount of activity in the hockey world this week. Normally we would be sitting here, scraping the bottom of the barrel putting up tired, old topics of how to free up cap room as filler (or actually working at our real, full-time jobs).
