Clock ticking on Heatley
Bob Gainey has made some big changes this off-season, letting go of Koivu, Kovalev, Lang, Tanguay, trading Higgins for Gomez and acquiring Gill, Spacek, Mara, Moen, Gionta and Cammalleri from free agency. This was all done in a few days and not much has happened since .. only speculation of trades; MTL and LA , MTL and SJ, MTL and CLB .. this leads most to believe the Marleau deal is alive again, or that Frolov may be re-united with Cammalleri or that we may even get Huselius from Colombus. This is all speculation and I am going to give you what I think will happen.
The Rangers submitted a number below Nikolai Zherdev’s $3.25 qualifier in the salary arbitration hearing conducted on Friday, The Post has learned.

Charles Darwin … meet Gary Bettman.
With about six weeks left before National Hockey League training camps open, dozens of players are still looking for jobs. Their agents are busy these days, sending out resumés and calling general managers.
Sens need to find a home where Heatley wants to go. Sharks need to get under cap and change their team by adding a new top 6 winger, Bruins need to trade Kessel as they are not able to resign him. What are these teams going to do? All three of them could be in a trade together to satisfy all sides.

Dany Heatley’s quest to get out of Ottawa isn’t dead yet.
Senators GM Bryan Murray confirmed in an e-mail to Sun Media that he could have “an option” to move the disgruntled left winger, but with the clock ticking toward the opening of training camp Sept. 12 at Scotiabank Place, the club will have to move quickly.
