Given the cap situation and the recent (last few years) of play, I don't see Heatley being worth the cap hit he has. However, if no other team was interested, and Lu requested a trade to the Twin Cities, then I could see a trade like that happening with Parise just signed.

That's the kind of deal I would want to see though, for an in conference trade. Another high level talent, possibly (if need be) with cap/contract issues.
