Quick Fix: Owen or Heskey?

If the media is to be believed, Benitez is currently looking at bringing back either Owen or Heskey to LFC.  Both players will be on sale at a very low price it seems, and Owen is at 2 million. Now, which player is the better choice?

I like Heskey, a player with so much potential before coming to LFC but did not really stand out as a LFC material and was booted out eventually. As for Owen, he proved to be a deadly striker both for us and england when he was with LFC. Then he jumped ship, leaving us high and dry when LFC needed him the most. For that, I don't like him at all.

Yes, we all rooted for him and loved him before he 'got greedy' and left us at his prime, at a crucial moment. LFC could have made a lot of money out of him, but alas made nothing since no contractual issue was to be settled.  He tried to make a comeback to LFC, at a price higher than the one received, and it would have been crazy had LFC bought him back at that time. 

Does this beg for some Liverpool fans to hate him, for abandoning us when we needed him? I am sure there are thousands of fans out there, including players, who hate his guts..really. Some might even be happy that he is in the rut now. So, will he help LFC's cause this season with Torres injured? At 2 million, I think it is a good gamble, but it will take a lot of persuasion on the part of Benitez to bring him back to LFC. As for me, I don't really care as long as we win games.
