I assume he's got to have that in mind when he opts not to invoke the NMC.

As far as downsides go that can't be seen as a huge one IMO. Oh noes, an NHL team is actually going to pay me to play hockey!

But I'm assuming GM's are able to communicate intentions in such a way as to avoid any question about the results in these situations. If everyone around the league knows Nyls is about to be moved to Omsk would they bother interfering? And if Nyls knows that at least one team out there actually wants him to play, would mind the shot to stay in the NHL?
