Murrays asking price
The rumour you posted has been kicking for a while. We'd essentially be trading Heatley for an unsure 1st round draft pick... lol. Sign Zherdev to a 5 year 3.5 cap hit and I'm all for it though. No way Murray even pretends to joke about taking another Dman, much less an over paid one. If Heatley is a Senator past July 1st, Murray has made it clear that anything less than a total fleecing by us will make Heater remain a Sen for the season.. I hope this crap gets resolved soon though. I'd rather him gone for a few picks and prospects to clear some cap if we can't get a few players to round our top 6.From the Rangers
D Marc Staal, C Brandon Dubinsky and/or RW Ryan Callahan. GM Sather — who’s trying to dump salary — is planning to take another run at the Senators after Friday night's failed talks.
Only 1 guy has scored more goals than Heatley since the lock-out, I think we're going to sit on him until Murray is wow'd. I know it wont be star-for-star a la our acquisition of him, but no way we're taking salary back unless it's in a top 6 position we can justify.
