OILERS AND SENS AGREE TO DEAL!!! Ask Heatley to waive NTC
Reported by TSN
“Sources say Dany Heatley has been asked to waive his no-trade clause to go to Edmonton in exchange for Andrew Cogliano, Dustin Penner and Ladislav Smid.
If Heatley agrees to waive, it would appear the Sens and Oilers will have a deal, pending the official trade call with NHL central registry, but that is generally a formality.
Heatley informed the Senators in early June that despite having five-years remaining on a six-year contract extension that he recently signed that he wished to be moved. The contract calls for Heatley to make $7.5 million per season against the cap.”
I said last week Sens and Oil could make a similiar deal, and some of you doubted me, feeling the Oil wouldn’t be giving up enough. Well, turns out Heatley didn’t have much market value after all.
