Is it cap hit or real salary? If it's real salary it's Heatley by default because Vinny's contract is terrible....10 million for the next 4 years including this one, and another at 8.5 after that. Heatley is at 6 and 5 the next two years, then UFA.
If it's cap hit, it's a lot harder. Neither player has a good cap hit, 7.5 and 7.7 and Vinny's recent injury troubles are a little worrisome. That said, he's stayed pretty close to Heatley's production in 17-18 less games. If he can stay healthy, I think he can still be a 70 point player. But Heatley's always been pretty durable and with the improvements in Minnesota this summer....I don't know it's tough.
I think I'd go with Heatley simply because he's a safe bet to play the full season. And maybe he'll see a spike in his scoring with Parise and Suter in town, not to mention Granlund. I don't think Heatley will go off like he used to, but getting back around 70 points is possible.
