NTC and a 5x5 contract. Unbelievable, Gainey must've had a mild stroke the days leading to July 1.
I don't see why he wouldn't accept a trade although I don't think Edmonton would want him but other teams probably would.
I see it as a "do you want to be traded or bought out type of situation" because if they ask Gionta to waive his NTC and he refuses, MB almost certainly will buy him out come summertime. I would think Gionta would rather be traded to a team that wants him instead.
