I believe that too. His statements were indicative of a desire to stay. I'm not sure how these things work with NTC, but I could see him asking for that. And I don't blame him one bit.

He wouldn't have been eligible for a NTC in the first year of the deal as they can only apply to years when the player could have been a UFA. But a public commitment from the team that they would not trade him would probably have been sufficient.

A similar thing happened with Roberto Luongo in Florida. He said he wouldn't sign for more than one year, but he was negotiating a longer term deal with Florida that included them publicly stating that he would not be traded.
