- Tambellini and Oilers unhappy Heatley trade details went public
- Senators put Heatley trade on back burner : The Ottawa Senators confirmed Thursday that the Dany Heatley deal is off the table - at least for now.
- Calgary reporting: At least Heatley can score : They were so desperate to consummate their pending trade with Ottawa - the one that sends albatross Dustin Penner, speedster Andrew Cogliano and developing defenceman Ladislav Smid to Ottawa - that they met with Heatley and agent Stacey McAlpine in Kelowna late Wednesday, hoping the malcontent sniper would finally waive the no-trade clause in his contract and become a happy Oiler.
- Los Angeles Kings: Johnson for Heatley
- McKenzie: Heatley situation likely to get ugly
- Heatley saga continues as other Canadian teams wheel and deal
- Heatley's grand plan failed miserably
So, what to do, Dany?
Go to Edmonton, with Oil management and players begging you to jump in, the water's fine?
Or take the risk that Murray, if forced to pay that $4 million after midnight, never finds another deal he considers fair and tells you to show up at Ottawa's training camp?
This was Heatley's Sophie's Choice as the clock approached midnight and the Oilers put on a full-court press to woo him.
- Heatley doesn't belong on Team Canada roster
Canada has a lot of good left wingers, and an overflow of outstanding centres and right wingers. Don't waste a spot on Heatley, Stevie Y. He may quit on you at the Olympics if he doesn't like what line he winds up on. ....
Instead, he bucked the opportunity Tuesday night, creating the biggest "Mess" to hit Edmonton since Mark.

- Funny thing is, Chris Neil would gladly put his name on a four-year contract and bust his ass each day of the deal's life just to earn what Heatley will be paid for the 2009-10 season and if he has to stay in Ottawa, there's really no guessing what kind of effort Heatley is going to produce.
- Murray could decide to let Heatley go for a few draft picks and prospects, then use the suddenly available cash in his budget to chase unrestricted free agents later this week. Jay Bouwmeester will likely sign with Calgary now, and Ottawa can't afford the Sedin twins if they don't stay in Vancouver.

- Heatley Stays Put at the draft:
"It's hard to make trades in the league today. Money comes into play and other factors come into play. We've talked a lot, but we've never had any inkling that we were going to do the deal. It never came to that at all," said Murray. "I had discussions, but not a lot. A couple of teams I have talked with in the past were just beating around the bush."
- Clouston bothered by Heatley's trade demand: "It bothers me that a player like Dany, who is a big part of the organization, all of a sudden doesn't want to be part of that. But I am still confident in that I believe we did what was right. The proof is in the wins and loss column and the proof is in how the guys played toward the end and how well they felt going into the off-season."

- Mr. Me First:
Talk to Dany Heatley once and you understand you're not talking to a MENSA candidate.
That's okay. As probably more a few coaches have told Heatley along the way: don't think, it just hurts the team.
But where Heatley really kept his synapses in reserve this time was his timing concerning a request to have his hockey contract traded to another NHL club.
