Actually, your point, unless you typed it like a complete tard was that he must have signed a no-movement clause because he didn't want to play anywhere but Calgary, when actually there are other reasons for signing such an amendment. The Carter analogy is to prove the point that signing a no-movement clause can be good because it gives you a choice in your movement instead of being traded to a team you may not want to go to. It's just as off-base for you to suggest that 'meester being traded to Detroit is outrageous for people to think as it is for you to think that he must just want to stay in Calgary and not go anywhere else if he had the option via trade.
Tuck your string in, guy.
Yes, generally you sign NTCs or no movement clauses because you don't want to be traded or moved. How is that hard to understand? It perfectly describes what it is. I have yet to hear a "Only trade me to these teams" clause.
EDIT: This post does come off as simple minded but the point remains the same. I understand many NTCs have special modifications where the player submits a list of teams that he will not accept a trade to but Jay Bouwmeester does not and that's what started this little troll war we have going
