Oilers rejected

Ottawa Senators winger Dany Heatley refused to waive his no-trade clause and killed a deal that would have sent the former 50-goal scorer to Edmonton.

Ottawa Senators winger Dany Heatley refused to waive his no-trade clause and killed a deal that would have sent the former 50-goal scorer to Edmonton. The trade would have sent Heatley to the Oilers in exchange for Andrew Cogliano, Dustin Penner and Ladislav Smid. The Senators had hoped to get a deal done by midnight Wednesday to avoid paying Heatley a scheduled US$4-million bonus, but the deadline passed without him agreeing to waive his non-movement clause in order to allow the trade to go through. Heatley requested a trade because of a rift with coach Cory Clouston. The demand comes less than two years after he signed a US$45-million, six-year deal with the Senators.
