Nearly Midnight:  Heatley Update

From TSN:

With just mere minutes remaining before the Ottawa Senators are on the hook for a $4 million signing bonus, it looks as though Dany Heatley is no more inclined to waive his no-movement clause to facilitate a trade to the Edmonton Oilers than he was 24 hours ago.

Sources close to Heatley say he doesn’t intend to make a decision by 11:59 p.m. eastern tonight and that he’s not comfortable making a decision on the Senators’ timetable.

But until the ‘‘deadline’’ actually passes, nothing is carved in stone just yet.

Update 12:03am ET: Dan Tencer of 630 CHED had this to say on his Twitter tonight, referencing a source—

Source: Meeting went OK with the Oilers. It’s more about Heatley trying put the screws to Ottawa.

Update 12:50am ET: From Darren Dreger at TSN, a summary of today’s events.

Part of the problem can be traced back to the NHL entry draft last weekend in Montreal.  Heatley was led to believe both the San Jose Sharks and New York Rangers were both strong trading partners. Some suggested, the Los Angeles Kings showed interest as well.

Heatley was preparing for the trade.
