As for the NTC transferring I have never seen anything that 100% said it did.
I'm pretty sure they said they honoured it, and Capgeek shows he has a NTC. Regardless, he signed that long term deal to stay in Philly, not to get traded 6 months later, especially when he had a handshake deal that they wouldn't invoke a trade before the NTC kicked in. If he's not happy I think it's the best thing for both sides to cut their losses.

I can't understand why Howson thought this would work, not only by bringing him over from a place he clearly loved, but also for thinking he and Nash would play well together when there is only 1 puck.

Also, like others said, if his NTC kicks in, he still has a say where he goes. For example, I can't imagine he'd go back to Philly so he would veto a trade there, not that there's a snowball's chance in hell of that happening, LOL!
