They are a little more rare but I would expect a player with a full NMC cannot be bought out. The NHLPA would fight that tooth and nail.

Tampa has quite a few and Malone's turns over into a NTC starting next season, but curious if he is outright protected through the buyout period this summer.

If you're a good enough player you probably don't care, you can double dip and most guys with a NMC are good enough they aren't being considered for a buyout period. But I would expect the players to fight very hard if the player didn't want to be bought out. Like if Tampa was to consider this with Vinny, he would file a grievance.

Surprised Briere doesn't use this to fight his situation, of course since he makes very little money over the next few years, maybe that is why he is on board with it.
