It's that simple.

I have no idea what teams will offer, and you're right, they might not offer very much. If that's the case, Heatley will have to honor the long term extension he signed, and if he has any pride/wants to win a Stanley Cup at some point/wants to play in the Olympics/ wants to be an attractive player that other teams will want to trade for, he'll have to put up an effort.

Ottawa won't give him away.
I think you have to get realistic and think that maybe your idea of what constitutes a bad offer and what people who actually manage teams think is a bad offer are two different things.

I bet Bos thought the Thorton deal was good value. It looks bad now, but they made the deal at the time and were content enough to not shop him. This applies to Oil for Pronger and the Panthers for Luongo.

The article I read say OTT wants a top 6 forward and top 4 puck mover in any trade for Heatley and the Oil can provide that.
