Well, there's the salary you have to pay the player and his high cap, in a cap world, after a sub-par production year.
There's the reportedly steep asking price from Murray in assets.
There is the fact he's sought a trade twice. After going to all the trouble to acquire him, there is no guarantee he won't do it again. This is now a player about whom teams wonder if there is an attitude problem. Would the attitude disappear, or would that be inherited by his new team? Is he flexible enough to be coached or is, 'go out and score as many goals as you can; take all the ice time you need,' the only coaching he's liable to follow?
Teams value Heatley, but how much, given all the above? It will be a challenge for Murray to figure out how to maximize value for his asset.
