I'm not going to vilify him for that one though.

It's hard to argue that point.

GM's do hand these NTC's out like they're going out of style that's for sure, and I really believe this is the biggest reason we see so little trades involving bigger names happening. They all have NTC's

I think you'd see WAY more moves taking place if there weren't so many of them. It really limits the market.
Big issues also are guys that can be NHLers, that simply are making too much money and no one wants them.

I don't know the answer as players are stubborn and don't want to lose money on a renegotiation of a contract. The owners don't want renegotiations back as then you have guys pouting that they are making 2mil but should make 6mil.

Be nice if there was a middle ground, because bad contracts are hurting deals.
