Dany Heatley has opened the door to agreeing to a trade with the Edmonton Oilers.

While Heatley's agent told Sun Media Wednesday night the disgruntled winger wasn't willing to accept a deal Wednesday night, he has held discussions with Edmonton GM Steve Tambellini and coach Pat Quinn Wednesday.

There will be more meetings with Tambellini on Wednesday night at his Kelowna home before Heatley makes a decision.

"Last night, Dany did not have enough time to evaluate the one option that was placed in front of him," said Barry from Sweden. "He hoped he would be presented with more options. He was not. We believed the deadline wasn't last night.

"Dany has taken the time today to talk to the Oilers and several people in the organization from the top down. I hope he'll be able to make a decision, but I'm not sure."
