by eklund: "Source: Heatley willing to go but doesn't feel right making Oilers pay for a bonus he earned in Ottawa.WOW"
This is a supposed quote from an Eklund source:
Heatley willing to go but doesn't feel right making Oilers pay for a bonus he earned in Ottawa.
What a crock
LOL QC you saw the same thing!!
that a bulls**t excuse right there
thats just heatley putting a cover up
Russell's right in saying Melnyk should tell Heatley to sue him for the money.
WOW what a dink
this also from eklund "Heatley also doesnt feel Murray worked hard enough to get him dealt. Waited for offers."
what the hell made him so bitter?
maybe the liquor strike?
in a way, this kind of puts murray back in the driver's seat. not sure what will happen with the 4 million but there's certainly no hurry to do anything now. they can let him rot the rest of the summer if they want. leave him in limbo. of course you have to do something sooner or later but the pressure is off for now.
nah, the liquor strike was averted. that's why I'm so calm about this.
hahahaha THATS WHY
What makes him so bitter is the source you're looking at. This is a guy who claims to have a journalism degree from McGill (they've never had a journalism program). He'll print anything for hits to bring him money.
maybe he just really doesn't want to live in edmonton.
i guess growing up a flames fan he must really hate the oilers,
A real source is Dan Tencer, of an Edmonton sports radio station, who has it that: Meeting went OK with the Oilers. It's more about Heatley trying put the screws to Ottawa. (notice that this is a more credible source, but giving directly opposing view of Heatley)
yeah i understand but why is he so pissed at ottawa?
Okay it's official... I now hate Heatley more than Yashin!!!
Ok Hobo, that's weird. less than a minute ago i was on that guy's site, thinking he'd be a good guest for the next show. great minds, I guess....
My mind, great? Don't make me double over like that on what I still consider to be Canada Day (actually I'm packing for a few days' return to Ottawa).
gives us shout when you get here. maybe we can do another wing night, if you have time.
There's also a good screenshot in the comments at KK, showing Ek declaring Heatley to Edmonton happened back at 8:25pm tonight. A lot easier to get the scoops first when you make them up.
Thanks, don't think I'll have time this time around though, I'll be heading up to the serenity that comes from a cottage on a lake full of Hill-ers (and Peter Mansbridge) for the weekend with family, already late since my five-day weekend started Tuesday night. If the offer still stands in the mid to late August range though, I'll be back in town for longer and more than up for it.
that'll be right around wedding time for me but you'll maybe be able to drag out the other two clowns. enjoy the cottage!
I'm slightly startled as to why people believe much of anything that Eklund says - it was most amusing to see a lot of people congratulating him on "breaking" the fact that Heatley had agreed to waive his NMC last night.
Let's be honest the best chance Ek has of breaking something is if he falls out of a tree.
