Bissonette tweeted: "Tough loss tonight. No joke Dany Heatley asked me for one of my sticks signed tonight. So i asked for 1 back."
The tweet included a photo of Heatley's autograph: "To Paul 'Biz-Nasty' Love Watchin' You Shoot The One-T!"
Bissonette fired off a second tweet: "I wrote 'to heater, from your favorite 4th line duster.' pretty good trade. One of my sticks for one of his? #FutureGM"
It's one thing to want the autograph of a player with a great chance at scoring 500 career goals; it's another to want the signature of a guy who is lucky to play 7 minutes in a game.
So why would Heatley want a stick signed by @BizNasty2point0?
"Over the years I've collected a lot of guys' sticks and I keep them at my summer place," Heatley told the San Jose Mercury News. "I don't know how many I have. Probably a couple hundred. Now, you might ask why I would want his stick. I find his tweeting pretty funny and the way he makes fun of his fourth-line role. He's pretty entertaining. I was on 'NHL Live!' a couple of weeks ago and he tweeted in a question. Obviously he's a character."
