Dany Heatley just keeps sticking it to the Senators, not only has he made a public demand for a trade that put the Sens in a dilly of a pickle but he also has a no-trade clause in his contract so he can veto a deal if they try to trade him to say, the Islanders... now its been revealed that Heater has a $4 million bonus due on July 1st, that means that teams won't be too inclined to pursue him before then. So teams that may be interested in Heatley will have to make the decision if shelling out some valuable assets for Dany is a better option than signing a UFA on the open market.
