Well the untouchables for NY (Stepan, Kreider, McDonagh) were echoed by management that they wouldn't be moved, yet their names were thrown around as pieces in a Nash trade. This is the same happening with Florida's untouchables (Bjugstad, Huberdeau), despite Tallon claiming that they are unlikely to be moved. NTC gives Florida a favorable advantage in negotiations.
