My opinion is that Murray will stand strong on his desired value.

You might very well be right.

I just don't think that Heatley has the ability to improve his play enough to increase his trade value to allow Murray to cornhole someone in a deal. I think it more likely that the Sens struggle to the point where Murray is motivated to get a deal done.

Like I said - you very well could be right. I just don't think that a hot start from Heatley is going to change anyone's minds on meeting Murray's current expectation for a deal. Also, once the season starts, I think the salary cap is going to make it harder to get a deal done as well.
