Getting Kerby drafted as high as possibly is going to be Warren's primary goal this season - it's a difference of millions for his son whereas hosting the Memorial Cup probably doesn't put much money in the ownership pockets.

I fully expect to hear that as part of Koko agreeing to come back he has an iron clad no-trade clause as per his request - just to deflect any criticisms on WR for not moving Koko this year and seeing him graduate away.
IMHO I expect that his rights will be traded now..too much water under the bridge. However, if that is not the case and he reports here I don't expect him to arrive with a no-trade clause [WR] could and should tell him to bag his *ss and stay where he is and continue to play poorly on 'daddy's team'. If he really wants to come back to North America he'll have to accept those terms.
