Capgeek and nhlscap are very good, but agents have told me that not all the info there is 100% accurate. Most of it is, and in this case I guess they are wrong. The contract filed with the league says it is a no-movement clause. I checked with the league.
I'm still a little confused on the last two years of his contract.
OK, so there's a NMC for the first 4 years, but then he can submit a list of 10 teams to be traded to in the 5th year?
So technically isn't his 5th season only a limited NTC and not an NMC? And if it is technically an NTC ... then what could he do if the Oilers sent him to the AHL that year? Because an NTC does not prohibit a team from burying a player in the minors, only an NMC can do that I think.
I'm not really worried about it being an NMC versus NTC for the first 4 years any how as it's pretty damn unlikely anyone would want to trade for him anyway.
