I can imagine that, if either the Rangers or Canadiens choose not to buy out either guy despite having this new clause
tailor made for them
, that they'll have the league, the PA, and fans lighting a fire under their arse about it.
Pressure put on them by the league almost
that they get bought out.
The above has never had, nor will it ever have an impact on a teams ability to attract and sign UFA's.
Sorry, but that is the truth.
