I couldn't disagree with you more.

If I'm a gm and one of my players, who does not have a NTC or NMC, asks to be dealt, I'm trading him to the team that makes the best offer. I'm not consulting that player or his rep, asking ' where would you like to be dealt '.

I'm also not going to be very concerned, with whether the player is going to 'happily play for his new team'. That's for him and his new team to work out.

Good job by Poile, not budging off the NTC/NMC issue. I've read Weber's recent comments. He does not sound unhappy or sound as if he's going to play with a chip on his shoulder, over not getting a NTC. He talks about moving past the whole offersheet issue and says he hopes to spend the next 14 seasons, playing for the Preds.
