MINNEAPOLIS -- Dany Heatley admits he was sad to see his good friend Devin Setoguchi traded to the Minnesota Wild on draft night back in June. It's more than 2,000 miles between San Jose and St. Paul, and though the hockey world is small, it can be tough to remain close during a long NHL season. Two weeks after draft night, however, Heatley and Setoguchi were both in Minnesota looking for houses following the Sharks separate trade of Heatley to the Wild. Now the onetime and current teammates will see plenty of each other this season as two-thirds of the Wilds top scoring line.Two-plus weeks into camp and with the season starting Saturday against visiting Columbus, Heatley and Setoguchi both feel good about their new situations.Setoguchi: "Coming from San Jose, the organization is top-notch from head to toe. After meeting everyone here, it's the same thing here. I already knew it was a hockey state, and I wasn't worried about that. But now that I've had the chance to get to know the guys in the room and see the passion these coaches have for winning, it is starting to become very comfortable."Heatley: "It was certainly a shock when it happened, but looking back it might have been time for a fresh start, and having Devin here with me has been a big help." The Wild are hoping the two former Sharks can provide a huge offensive boost for new coach Mike Yeo, who has put the two wingers around top center Mikko Koivu and is excited about what he has seen in the preseason."These guys are so talented, Yeo said. They just seem to always know where the puck is going and how to find those open spaces in the offensive zone." Heatley, who will turn 31 later this season, twice has been a 50-goal scorer and just two years ago had 39 goals for San Jose. Setoguchi is just 24 and during his time with the Sharks was more of a second-line player, scoring 73 goals the past three seasons combined. He believes the extra ice time in Minnesota will allow him to increase his numbers."There is no question that it will be an advantage to be out there with Mikko and Dany (Heatley), he said. To be on this line and get so many more looks with the top group on the power play is going to be awesome. I should have the chance to score more goals and help this team win."That top line has looked outstanding in the preseason, combining for five goals and 11 assists in just three games together."They have been good together so far, but I am certain they will be even better once they have played together for a while and established some good chemistry, Yeo said. I think we are just scratching the surface with these guys; it should be fun to see where they can take this thing."Heatley has been most impressed with Koivu."Mikko is amazing, Heatley said Having played against him, I already knew how good he was at defending the top players in this league. But I have been taken back by how good he is with the puck. He knows when to move it and when to drive it in deep. I think he is the perfect center for guys like Seto and myself. We will certainly get our chances, that's for sure." Now both players are settled in with their new team, Setoguchi, like most of his new teammates, is eager to play some games that count."We're definitely motivated, not only Dany and myself but the whole group of guys and the coaching staff, he said. We've got a little swagger going, so it's time to start fresh and erase whatever memory people have had of this team in the past and try to build a new one moving forward."
