Well, this rumour has been confirmed for the most part, but Dany Heatley is balking at the idea that he wants to waive his no-movement clause to go to Edmonton. This deal certainly gives both teams what they were looking for at the beginning of this ordeal, but it seems Edmonton is a terrible place to move to. Apparently, Heatley has until midnight tonight to make the move or else he has a much greater chance at staying in Ottawa for the coming season in some uncomfortable circumstances.
