Not really. Someone will always take a chance on him. Regardless of his contract, he's still an allstar goalie. You put him on waivers, and there'll be at least 4-5 teams putting in claims - if not more.

The reason he hasn't been traded, isn't that he's untradable, it's that in addition to his contract, Vancouver is looking for a premium return fitting of an allstar goalie... and that's just not going to happen. Once they lower their expectations, something will get done, and he'll be moved this summer. Just hopefully not to Toronto.
