One Response to NHL Morning Coffee Headlines – July 10, 2014

    Interesting signing by the Ducks with Heatley. I was hopeful that the Penguins would have kicked the tires a bit. He’s slow as hell, but still has the size and great hands. Used properly, he could be an interesting role player that could put up points being fed by the fast, skilled Crosby and Malkin on the PP. Figured he would want $2-3M but $1M is a low risk high reward depth signing for the Ducks.
