If that's the way it plays out (phenomenally unlikely, but hey, anything's possible, I suppose), then we'll just have to deal with it. We'll end up getting less than he's worth... But speculating on such a specific set of circumstances is really a moot point. It's still far-fetched to assume that he's even considering waiving his NMC, let alone who he'd be willing to waive it for, or for how many teams.

Why don't we create a "Value of: Dan Boyle to Ottawa, because Boyle hypothetically demands to be traded, and will only waive his NTC for the Sens because he's an Ottawa kid and wants to play in his hometown" thread?

Let's not talk about hypotheticals like that until something develops that warrants the discussion.
I chose NYR/VAN because someone mentioned wanting to put Alfie with some Swedes. NYR/VAN has swedes. Det has Swedes too, but Franzen/Zetterberg isn't appealing as much anymore without Lidstrom compared to Stralman/Lundqvist/Hagelin or Sedin/Sedin/Edler. That's the only reason why I picked those two teams as my example.

Are VAN/NYR going to be the only teams interested? Heck no, that's why it's titled to contender.
