Letter From Dany Heatley To Thrashers Fans
August 23, 2005
To All Thrashers Fans,
Requesting a change of environment was an extremely difficult decision.
After a tremendous amount of reflection and numerous conversations with
my family, it made the most sense to seek a change.
I would sincerely like to thank the fans of Atlanta. I enjoyed an
amazing few years in the area and was embraced by everyone in the
community. I feel fortunate to have come into the NHL with Atlanta and
will always be proud to say I was a Thrasher. The Thrashers have
acquired a world-class player in Marian Hossa. All in all, this is a
win-win situation for everyone and I wish the best of luck to the entire
Thrashers organization and my teammates.
I appreciate the support the organization has given me over the years
and I'd like to thank them for honoring my request. My teammates, the
fans and community will always hold a special place in my heart.
