Sens GM Murray exploring all Heatley options

Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray is still patiently waiting to make the right deal for disgruntled forward Dany Heatley.

Nine days after the two-time 50-goal scorer informed Senators management he wanted to be traded to another National Hockey League team, Murray remains hopeful he can make something happen before next week's NHL entry draft in Montreal.

"I've had some conversations with several teams," Murray told the media earlier Tuesday at a media conference to introduce the organizations new executive leadership team. "I don't really have a timetable but I have encouraged anybody that is really interested to try to make the contact before the draft. We will get something done by that time, I hope.

"If we're going to do a deal, that would be the right time for me to feel that we could maybe achieve something and get it done."

While Murray has yet to field an offer involving a Top10 pick in the draft – or an opportunity to move up from the Senators' current No. 9 position in the first round – he said "those are things we would consider" in a trade involving Heatley.
