What was previously reported by THN a while ago was just confirmed by Pollak: the Sharks are not bound by Heatley's no-trade clause. Also, Clowe felt like at first he was "squeezing his stick too tight," but now feels like he's in the right spot, but just getting unlucky points-wise. He also says he feels like he scores in bunches. Heatley's return to Atlanta will be the eighth time since he was traded, and he says that now it's not as emotional or hard as it was initially after the crash and the trade demand. And the Sharks aren't leaking any info about Pavs and Torrey, other than they're skating and making progress.
