This is why the no trade was added during the final two seasons, so he could keep himself from being traded to the bottom feeders.

We don't know who will be on the list yet. This is all speculation. For all we know we trade him next offseason.

I've been big on replacing Russell with a right handed vet. I don't want Benning and Nurse playing on the second pairing unless they earn it.

Here's the Russell thread. I personally don't mind the signing myself.

Just keep in mind. He got signed to this contract out of loyalty and his fit in the locker room

Classic Chia signing

Saw this discussed in the trade rumour thread regarding his contract.

Looks like a full NMC the first two years which becomes modified the final two years.

Cap Friendly citing themselves as the source for the first two years is odd. I have tried the google machine and cannot find any other discussion of an NTC/NMC in the first two years.

It really makes the deal much different, and less palatable, if it's a full NTC/NMC in the first two years as opposed to nothing at all.

Is it really a big deal?

I'm not worried at all about having him for those first two seasons.

That seems like a question that can be asked for the vast majority of the threads here.

It's good information to know in terms of potential trades and managing the cap.

Also interesting to know with respect to media coverage of the Oilers. If there is a full NMC/NTC clause in the first two years how come none of the regular Oilers beat guys have mentioned it anywhere?

Could me misconstrued as a negative. We all know how SOFT the Oilers media guys are.

This article from Staples summarizes pretty much all of my thoughts on Russell:

I'm not a big fan of the contract by any means (the term, would have loved 2 years) but I'm pretty sure Chia signed him to the contract because he was one of the most important even strength defenders for the Oilers last season. Why he felt the need to go 4 years is beyond me but better to have him in the short term than not have him.

Not a fan of his style of game but he was surprisingly effective for large portions of last season and got rewarded for it, not solely because he's a good locker room guy although I'm sure that played a role as well.
