Most players want a NTC to control where they're traded to, not to actually prevent trades.

I think most guys would rather be guaranteed ice time on a good team, rather than gamble he'll be scratched a lot on a good team. On the other hand, with a shortened year, he may not want to go through the hassle of moving his family with only 1 week before the season starts and in the middle of the school year.
