You won't have to use an amnesty buyout on Heatley. With 1 year left on a front loaded contract, someone will take him as a reclamation project.
Not to mention, you could always take a 3 mil contract with a 3 mil cap hit back and save yourself 4.5 mil in cap space. As long as the asking price is nothing and you're willing to take a contract back, moving Heatley will be no issue.
As a Flames fan, I'd definitely take a look at him for free or maybe a 1 for 1 swap for Stajan. Take back Stajan and his 3.4 mil cap hit and 2.5 actual salary...then you can choose to buy out Stajan for 1.5 mil or keep him.
