On capgeek they track the most popular buyouts over the last week. This is the current standings.

1. Heatley, Dany
2. Gomez, Scott
3. Rafalski, Brian
4. Drury, Chris
5. Souray, Sheldon

Illustrates how far he has fallen in the eyes of fans.

When he looks as done as he does at 30, I can't imagine how he will look at 33 towards the end of the contract.

With most teams being terrified about bad contracts I think it is hard to trade Heatley. He hasn't really endeared himself to his past teams and it doesn't look like he will be bouncing back to his previous skill level.

To move the contract, you have to sweeten the deal significantly is my guess.
