Your complaints should be directed either at the players or at the entire NHL. To begin with, the players want these. I imagine that many players probably would be more willing to sign if one of these are on the table. So if you want a GM to be more stingy with these clauses, you have to also be willing to deal with paying more or potentially losing out on the player you want.

Not to mention that you are complaining about something that has not affected this team (as far as I can tell). Yes Briere has a NTC and there are rumors it may get in the way. But at this point it hasn't. Gagne had one, but waived it. If this is inaccurate, someone correct me, but the Flyers have not had an issue with NTCs that I can remember.

More than that, look at any teams in the NHL. Many have around the same amount of NTC/NMCs as the Flyers.

Let's just look at some of the better run franchises in the league:

Detroit: 7
Chicago: 8
Pitt: 9
Boston: 9

What you are complaining about is senseless.
