The NHL rumor world was on fire yesterday as news filtered out that the Ottawa Senators and Edmonton Oilers have a deal in place for Dany Heatley, but it was revealed that Heatley did not waive his no trade clause to go to Edmonton. The deal would have sent Dustin Penner, Andrew Cogliano and Ladislav Smid to the Sens in exchange for Heatley. The much-talked $4 million bonus will only be paid after 11:59 PM July 1st (today), so there's still time for the Senators to work out the deal. Brochu's take: TSN is reporting that Heatley has not flat out refused the trade, he has just not done anything. This deal could still be on.
