With Dany Heatley announcing he wants out of Ottawa and into the Western conference you can bet that 14 teams in West are preparing their offer. The Wings can’t take Heatley because he makes more than Lidstrom and that goes against their policy, not to mention Zetterberg and Datsyuk make less as well.

To no one's surprise, Brent Sutter made his departure from the Devil's organization official today. I think we can all agree that his appearing behind the Flames bench in the near future is a fait accompli, yes? The question is: will it be for this coming season or the next? TSN reports that Lamoriello cannot ask for compensation from the Flames under the auspices of this CBA, but is within his rights to refuse to allow Sutter out of his final year (and thus to coach anywhere else this coming season).

Check another name off the free agent list. It was announced yesterday that Darryl Sutter has re-upped back-up Curtis McElhinney for another couple of years. Rumor is the contract runs for two years at just over 500k per year.
