10:14pm MDT update: Heatley will not waive his no-trade clause. He stays in Ottawa, and won't come here.

Earlier tonight: Just got off the phone with Gregor:

"The Oilers have traded Dustin Penner, Ladislav Smid and Andrew Cogliano for Dany Heatley. This will add $2.1 million to the Oilers' payroll."

He also mentioned that Hossa talks with LA have broken off.

Finally, the handsome devil teased me with this one: the Oil aren't done dealing yet.

OH EM GEE

Bingofuel is the handsome cyborg who pulls all the levers behind the curtains of the OilersNation. When he isn't running the site, he's plugged into a wall socket, recharging. Or Brownlee and Wanye are playing "keep away" with him. He gets little to no respect.

I'll admit what really bothers me is the Smid aspect of this. I can get moving Cogliano, even though it seems contrary to what the team seemed to be going towards.

But all three of them for Heatley? Penner is a lightning rod of controversy, so I won't go there, other than I think he's under-valued here by a lot of people, including by some in the organization by last year's tale of the tape. Still I can fully get behind moving him for Heatley; and it's probably a good thing for Penner. Same with Cogliano; he won't be as log-jammed in Ottawa, I'd wager.

In the short of it; I liked Smid and what he brought -- especially at the price tag and age. Time will tell if it was or wasn't an over-pay, but I hope management has a few other things in the fire to compensate, as alluded to up top. Our second line, as of now, worries me a lot.

Sad to see Cogs and Smid go but man this is a great deal for the Oil. Cogs is gonna be an RFA next season and Smid is this year. Penner...nuff said. 1.13 + 4.25 + 1.0 (estimate) = 6.38million. Adds 1.1 million to the Oils cap but gives a lot of lower priced prospects a chance to find a roster spot and develope. Who would have thought this would happen a month ago.

I hate to be the guy that says it (if no one else does), but reports coming out are that it's not a done deal just yet. Sens saying they haven't heard from Heatley that he waived his NMC, and Tambellini is saying it's not a done deal yet. (as per TSN and also Dan Tencer). Argh.. come on, just get it done already!

@ Racki: I'm a little anxious on that one too man. If he pulls a Nylander on us (not quite the same but ya know...) the Nation's self-esteem will dip just shy of a 12 year old bulimic girl. *reflects sadly on childhood*

Great deal. Legitimate sniper for Penner (no need for comment), Cogliano (Todd Marchant clone) & Smid (this type of d-man is a dime a dozen). GO OILERS GO.

IF this deal happens (if it hasn't already) I think its a good deal for both sides. Might be a real win-win. Between Cogs and Penner it would be no surprised if collectively they break 50-55 goals for a few seasons.

It's a lot easier to get two 20 goal scorers to replace the ones that left (hell Brodziak scored 14 and we traded him for picks), then it is to get an mipact forty goal scorer.

With Smid being dealt, is this an opening for a Jack Johnson/Souray Trade? Not sure if JJ brings much grit, but it will unjam the D a bit.

The other good thing here is 3 contracts for 1.
