It would certainly hurt their credibility in future negotiations that involve a NTC if it's hinted that a player would just be waived if you used his NTC. All in all the trade market just isn't there for a 30 year old winger with an injury history and impending free agency, especially when you consider the leverage Tampa had as Gagne's supposed only destination as well as our cap problems.
