Per Cas on...another thread ( Shrug )

"The plot thickens,,, Heatley backs out of Spezza's wedding. He is really seperating himself from his teamates. He will be 100% gone. I think something will get done by August. Hard to say if it will be Edmonton,San Jose or Minnesota."

-Hockeybuzz

Max Keeping confirms.

I moved this here because it's a big story. In my POV it almost ensures that Heatley is moved by Opening Night. And I think it's gonna be to Edmonton after all. They just sent him some sort of video ( :blah: ) about how fun it would be to play in Edmonton. Just a gut feeling, but I think he's leaving.

now i am by no means defending heatley but where spez has come out and said he did not want it to be made into a media spectacle heatley may have did a move so more he doesnt have to confront the media and spez can have his day a little more private.....i am purely speculating and i have my doubts heatley is doing anything to help anyone but hisself at this point and i do agree he will be gone by training camp

Was gonna post this in other thread, but there is more to this than Keeping and the Sun are telling.

I'm sorry for not saying more but because of the nature of the event (Spezza's very "public" wedding), I really don't feel comfortable posting it, till after the wedding is done.

It fits into the same situation where I didn't and won't post even the location and time of Spezza's wedding on HB. (Not that it's hard to find out)

But there is 2 different stories coming out regarding Heatley's attendance / Spezza's wedding.

First, SD, I somewhat disagree. Heatley announcing he will not attend is a positive step w.r.t. Spezza and the rest of the team. He is actually mending some fences here, not erecting new ones.

Second, the wedding is at the Notre Dame basilica (used to work just around the corner on Guiges). Their website (http://notredameottawa.com/) states that marriages will be celebrated at 12, 1:30, 3 and 6:30. Spezza could afford to book all four slots if he wanted. I'll take a wild stab and say some fairly long telephoto lenses will be seen around the front of the National Art Gallery starting around, ooh, 11AM. If it was my choice, I'd pick the 3PM slot -- enough time to recover from lunch (I remember for mine I didn't want anything for lunch excpe t maybe some jello, so my future brother in law took me to a smoke meat place); and enough time for the ceremony and pictures, without making guests wait too long to eat (ours was at 1, and our poor flower girl was exhausted, hungry and tired well before the hors d'ouvres arrived -- yes, we had McDonalds wrappers at our reception).

Third, Mark, you're beginning to sound just like Keving did at times. If you've got something to say, say it. If not, well, don't tantalize us by saying that you know something but can't really tell us, except that you pretty much are giving it away anyway -- Heatley publicly says he's not coming, but he's probably coming in secret.

Oh, best post on another board:


Note to wedding organizers:

If any gift weighs 700lbs, it's Garrioch inside.

Inaccurate, but funny.

Indeed... with all due respect and no offense intended, but that kind of stuff serves nothing really and is not in line with how we like to do things here. If you've got info, hold on to it until you can post it.

Mark sounds most like Kevin Lie when he claims that "computer issues" prevent him from posting a blog... Laughing3

I think that the two of them probably decided it's best he doesn't come because of all the attention on the situation.

I wouldn't view this as a conspiracy, but rather a smart gesture on his part to not take away from the big day of Spezza.

You think that's gonna save his Donkey? The longer he waits to talk, the worse it gets for him.

I just don't see any possible way they let him stay in Ottawa to start the year. Everytime he appears anywhere, he's going to be hounded by media. Everytime he goes to get groceries, he's going to be hounded by media. Everytime he ties his laces up, he's going to be hounded by media. If he scratches his ear, he's going to be hounded by media.

It's just going to be ridiculous.

I 100% agree. He's making the situation worse for himself.

If the Oilers pul their deal off the table, he's stuck here in Ottawa. Then we'll have to wait until camp opens and be stuck with $7 million in extra cap to sign any unsigned free agents - which will be none.

Is there no way the team can file a grievance against him?

Heatley can't really say anything to the public to make the situation better. If he speaks out and says things were not working out in Ottawa and he needed to move in a different direction etc... and then Murray can't move him and he's back in Ottawa, it's just more bad crap.

I think he should be talking with Alfie, Murray and Melnyk at the very least and at least saying something to them privately.

If there's more to this than meets the eye... then it will have to come out after he's moved.
