Perhaps this was the plan all along

They make the Nash trade, it leaves them with 3 top six right wings. They know they have to trade one of them. It's not going to be Nash, nor their Captain, how about Gaborik? Torts was never in love with Gaborik's game, so he is the natural choice to be moved.

However there is that pesky no trade clause. How do they get Gaborik to waive it? How about they play him on his off wing, move him up and down the lines. Then maybe trade for a natural LW who threatens Gaborik new LW spot in the top 6?

Where is Gaborik going to fit in after the Clowe trade? He is not getting his RW spot back in the top 6. With Hagelin and now Clowe, he may be bumped down to 3rd line LW.

Seems like that may be enough to have Gaborik waive his clause.
