He could shoot someone in the locker room, and he would get traded. Not on that contract.
Disagree. There are still GM's that would give up assets to acquire a top goaltender, especially teams that don't have good goaltending in the works.
Oilers, Panthers, Flyers, Islanders, Hurricanes (b/c of how injury prone Ward is), Jets, Flames, etc.
He has more trade value than you give him credit for. A lot of GM's might move assets, at a reduced cost because of his recent performance, but still viable assets, to acquire an elite goaltender who they think will turn around with their organization, especially with the rising cap.
