The Rangers aren't giving any player a no movement clause or a no trade clause.They refused to offer Patrik Ellias a NMC last summer
Yes, but Elias isn't one of Sather's friends. Sather considers Smyth one of his friends. They are from the same town and Sather had to campaign for Smyth all throughout and before the draft during his year.

I think a guy like Smyth WOULD get that from Sather compared to a guy Sather has had no positive history with.
