Appears that you've just arrived at this thread.

Ohlund has openly stated that if he is to be traded, he would only waive his NTC to go to a team that would resign him, and the estimate is approximately 4-5 million for a few years. He basically doesn't want to move twice for the sake of his family. So if Florida trades for him and wants him, they've got him staying, basically.
