Inside Sports host Dan Tencer posted on his Twitter that he expects Tambellini to confirm that the Oilers have officially stopped pursuing Heatley. Tencer also states that the interview will be live on-air at 3:30pm Alberta time, which is 2:30pm PST and 5:30pm EST.
Update: As you can see from the quote above, Tambellini confirmed that he has told the Ottawa Senators that the Oilers are no longer actively working on a Heatley deal. Other than that, little of value was said.
