One of the reasons he's getting linked there so often is because of how easily they could fit him under the cap - Dany Heatley is a 7.5 million UFA at the end of this season, so they can essentially just swap those two. Only other FA's are Rupp, Konopka, Niederreiter, Fontaine, McMillan, Stoner, and Prosser with 15.5 million of cap space to spend.
