"Deadline" Looming

With training begining in a little more then a week, Bryan Murray appears to be considering a deadline to trade Heatley (which would be the start of training camp). We've heard this before but this is the first time we've heard it first hand from the GM. I still think it's a bargaining ploy to get Heatley to open up to more teams, as to not have him have to come back to Ottawa for camp but he could be serious. That being said, if he gets a good enough deal, I'm sure he would deal him anytime.

With the Jason Smith retirement official, at least Murray won't have to make a move. That brought us back under the cap and bought Murray some time. I still think it would be better if #15 was gone by the time camp started but if he comes back, it's never bad to have a former 50 goal guy either. One way or another I wish it would be resolved. I'm just tired of hearing about it and the endless speculation. We will know soon I guess but soon can't come soon enough for me.

Assist goes out to Sens Chirp for the nice find on Twitter, of Heatley at a photoshoot in the last few days in a Sens Uni for Easton Hockey, possibly for the last time, to see click here
