Dany's downfall

What was the motivation for Dany Heatley to make his trade request public?

Aside from the media and rival fans, no one benefits. Heatley is made out to be a selfish player with bad character; fewer teams are interested because of the possible reasons for his demand; his trade value is diminished significantly; and half of his salary is paid by an owner whose team Heatley will not play for come training camp. 

Had they just kept it behind doors, Heatley's character would not have been questioned, the Senators would have been set up for a greater return and brighter future, and Heatley's salary would have been paid by his actual team.

Great job, Heater - we'll really miss ya.
