It's a low risk move, Heatley's contract only has 1 more year after this one (and he could always be bought out at the end of the season, right?), and it could really pay off.

If the Wild are out of the race come trade deadline time, or they aren't looking like a team that could potentially contend, what do you think Minnesota would want?
Anytime you spend 7.5 million per on a guy that should be better than what he is, its a high risk - certainly not low. Let him be bought out and then sign him for what he is worth - 4-4.5 million. This is a pass, even if its for one year. The cap goes down, not up.
