If I remember correctly, Heatley's contract is structured in such a way that he always has a 10-day window in which he can be traded. If the GM wishes to trade him, he can request a 10 team list of "approved" teams (or the inverse 20 teams ruled out) under which the GM can talk to those ten teams.
The 10 day window starts at the draft and closes shortly after free agency.
The Wild were not on his exclusion list now that I'm thinking about it...
Havlat was asked to waive his NTC...
I want to say it starts July 1 because the Havlat deal was essentially agreed upon at the Draft and couldn't go through until later. Then again maybe it had more to do with Havlat's NTC.
