Ottawa Senators star forward Dany Heatley has reportedly provided the team with a list of teams he would accept a trade to this offseason. 

According to reports in today's Ottawa Sun, Heatly has informed Senators GM Bryan Murray that he would accept a deal to the Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings, New York Rangers, San Jose Sharks, or Vancouver Canucks

Other teams in hot pursuit include the Colorado Avalanche, Minnesota Wild, and St. Louis Blues.  It has been reported in various outlets this week that the Blues' offer was leading the pack, but it's unclear if Heatley would accept a move to St. Louis. 

The New York Rangers are believed to be highly interested in the left winger who has 543 career points in 507 games, as a solution to their offensive woes.  But at this point, it's unclear how the Rangers would fit Heatley into their cap plans and if they have the pieces to entice Ottawa to make the deal.
