I guess the only thing that neither one of us can't argue with is "We'll see".
The Thronton to Cheechoo trick went from 56 to 37 in one year. The teams adjusted (the slide beyond that can be blamed on injuries and playing on the 3rd line). Other than Cheechoo, the only other player in the West to get a recent (post lock-out cap and rules changes) 50 goal season is Iginla.
If Heatley can play like Iginla then he will score 50. In other words, I'm saying he won't score 50.
Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I've failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
