Heatley Wants Out

June 9, 2009, by

Don’t forget to check out the post below on Jiri Hudler’s RFA status, and the pickle the Wings might be in.

Dany Heatley, just one year into his 6 year, $45 million contract ($7.5 million cap hit), has kindly asked the Ottawa Senators to trade him. Heatly, a go-to scoring winger, would definitely look very nice in Ranger Blue, but his most likely destination is California, to the Kings, in a deal centered around Jack Johnson, or to the Sharks in a deal centered around Patrick Marleau.

I’m actually going to go on the record, and say that if Heatly gets traded, it’s to the Kings or the Sharks.

    We couldn’t agree more. I really have to think that he would be a much better player in the West. More wide open hockey. That said, I wrote that LA and SJ would be likely candidates, but I didn’t really consider Anaheim until now. There are a lot of draft pets there from Murray’s days, and he may want to bring some of those guys back into the fold. Should be an interesting couple of weeks to the draft and to July 1st!

    I don’t think Anaheim has the cap room to take Heatley unless they move Pronger in the deal.
