07:28 AM ET 10.16 | "Heater" is taking some heat of his own. Dany Heatley is struggling. It's plain for all to see. Heatley has no goals, one assist and 12 shots through seven games. This is a player who said he would be disappointed not scoring goals this season. ... The Wild veteran has been cemented on a second line that hasn't scored a single even-strength goal this season. Coach Mike Yeo was asked after Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs if he can afford to continue to let Heatley play through this. "After every game, we look at our lines and we say what do we need to do going forward, and every game we'll evaluate it," Yeo said. "I'm not going to say he's at his best right now. I'm not, for sure. But I also know that he's capable of more."

"But I also know that he's capable of more." sums up his career. No worries he will improve. Its a contract year.

Went to the game last night and got to see up close just how much he's lost it. It's amazing to think just five years ago you'd argue for him to score 50 in a season.

Maybe he just doesn't have the "drive" anymore.

What does it matter? Thought Parise was the answer to all their problems?

When your opponent only has 14 shots on goal and you let in 4 scoring's not the question.

Maybe a little liquid courage would make him a smashing success again.

You won't hear a lot of teammates yelling "shotgun".

"Heatley in Minnesota's doghouse"

That's where he belonged ever since that Ottawa fiasco. Maybe he can join his twin, Yashin, in the KHL?

So he should 'park' it?

Guys, I enjoy a pun as much as the next guy, but these are not cool

Would any of you have the guts to repeat them to Mr and Mrs Snyder?
