I don't know where your getting the $12M # from. He signed a six year $45M dollar deal (10, 8, 8, 8, 6, 5) INCLUDING all bonuses I don't doubt there is a a bonus, and I'll take your word it is $4M in up front money, but it is included in the $8M he scheduled to make next year.
On July 1 he is owed a 4 Million dollar bonus plus 4 million of his '09-10 Salary, That was discussed in Edmonton by Jason Gregor and some Ottawa beat writer.

Facing facts, Heatley is an elite player, but his money is Top-5 in the NHL. He is not a top-5 player, maybe top 10, actually let me list;

Ovechkin
Crosby
Malkin
Datsyuk
Zetterberg
Getzlaf


ya so like probably barely top 10.

Like I said beggers can't be choosers, and I want the Oil to get him, l just think Ottawa fans could have their expectations & value too high.
