Could Kovalev Convince Heatley To Stay In Ottawa?

from Chris Stevenson of the Ottawa Sun,

A Senators team with both Alex Kovalev and Dany Heatley in the lineup could be a reality.

Kovalev said he would be willing to talk to Heatley about his request to be traded and try and get the two-time 50-goal scorer to change his mind.

“He’s a hell of a player. It would definitely be nice for him to stay on the team,” said Kovalev, whose two-year, $10 million contract (all terms US) signed Monday pushed the Senators over the salary cap by about $1.5 million. Keeping both Kovalev and Heatley would necessitate Senators GM Bryan Murray moving some contracts.
