A guest column from Lord Bob on the Dany Heatley situation.
According to RDS, Dany Heatley has refused to waive his no-trade clause, voiding a trade that would have sent Andrew Cogliano, Dustin Penner, and Ladislav Smid to Ottawa.
Dany Heatley is, according to Sportnset, now a member of the Edmonton Oilers. Mixed feelings is the right descriptor for my mood right now.
Dany Heatley could be traded before July 1, but it's going to take a significant offer from the New York Rangers or the Edmonton Oilers -- the two clubs seemingly most interested in the goal-scoring winger -- to get it done.
Sources say the Ottawa Senators do not have a trade offer from those teams, or anyone else, that is deemed worth of acceptance and the list of suitors looks as though it's getting shorter rather than longer. The St. Louis Blues and Los Angeles Kings appear to have pulled out of the sweepstakes, leaving the Rangers, Oilers and Sharks as considerations.
