The Ottawa Senators are on the hook for a $4 million signing bonus to forward Dany Heatley.

Like he did on Tuesday, the disgruntled forward declined to waive his no-movement clause by Midnight eastern on Wednesday to facilitate a trade to the Edmonton Oilers.

The Senators had agreed to a deal with the Oilers on Tuesday night that would have sent Andrew Cogliano, Dustin Penner and Ladislav Smid to Ottawa in exchange for Heatley. Heatley was asked to waive his no-movement clause by the Senators but he didn't oblige.

Heatley signed a six-year contract with the Senators for $45 million in October of 2007, but said recently he wanted out of Ottawa due to philosophical differences with head coach Cory Clouston.

The Freiburg, West Germany native is set to earn $7.5 million this season.
