Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun says in his blog that the Heatley-to-Edmonton deal has been killed by Heatley, and that he will play for the Senators next season. Hard to imagine that. But the Senators are on the hook for the $4 million, and the price to get Heatley…

446 No Heatley? (updated)

Hey, it’s me. Do you guys remember me? I’m still on vacation but thought I’d drop in on D-day. I was looking at some of the NHL sites and saw all these headlines about Babcock and got nervous for a moment. Then I realized they were about Mike, not Laurel.…
