True, although I believe once you waive your NTC to move to a new team it is no longer valid once traded.

I think the Rangers can trade him to whoever they want now. I could be wrong though.


Good question and I'm not sure on that. I'm trying to sort though that part.

Wow. What the heck is Columbus doing? So, their three best forwards are now Derrick Brassard, R.J. Umberger, and Brandon Dubinsky. Yeah, that'll sell tickets.

I understand why they might not want to trade Nash to US, but why even trade him at all if you can't get an elite prospect out of the deal? Dubinsky has a 4.2 million cap hit for the next three years - that's the type of garbage you overpay for no reason other than to get to the salary floor.

Erixon is a blue chip D prospect and the Jackets also have Johansson that can play a big role next year. I have a feeling that they will be icing a lot of prospects in the next couple years.

Free darkmanx!

So I'm assuming the Ranger's first line is

Nash-Richards-Gaborik


wow.


Or Nash-Richards-Callahan?

Nash - Richards - Gaborik
Hagelin - Kreider - Callahan
Pyatt - Stepan - Rupp
Boyle - Halpern - Asham

Staal - Del Zotto
Mcdonagh - Girardi
Stralman - Sauer

Lundqvist
Biron

*gulp* This teams top-6, top-4, and Goaltending is all sexy as f***

I hope they destroy the east next year. have always liked the rangers. let's see what Nash can do with Richards and Gaborik now. That's a strong line.

Free darkmanx!

I think you're right, but can't find much to back it up at this point. I seem to recall seeing something a few years back that says that a player who waives his NTC/NMC effectively voids the clause. However, I did find this snippet on CapGeek...

If a player waives a clause to accept a trade to a new team, it is rare he will do so without a promise that the acquiring team will continue to honour the clause. Brad Richards, when traded from Tampa Bay to Dallas in 2007-08, is an example of this. However, if the player is traded before a clause has kicked in, that clause is automatically ruled void.


If a player still holds the NTC/NMC with the new club, then why would he need a promise from the new team that they will honor the clause? I could be reading it wrong, but I think that goes to show that the clause is considered void, once the player agrees to a trade.

Howson is an idiot. Columbus will be in the toilet of the league for the foreseeable future. Great that the central is weakening so much, hopefully Stan Bowman does something really stupid now to really help us out in terms of Central seeding.

Scott Howson is, without a doubt, the worst long-term GM since Mike Milbury. The guy is bad at everything. His draft picks never pan out, his signings never work out, and his trades are terrible.

IF Weber inks a deal with the Flyers, the Eastern Conference gets ridiculously loaded.

Only thing left is Doan and Semin, which I heard Semin might jump to the KHL.

2 more days until we hear what Weber does...

Wow, knew this was coming. People rag on Sather, but this is a good move for them. Their lineup looks extremely well-rounded.

Gaborik-Richards-Nash
Hagelin-Kreider-Callahan
Pyatt-Stepan-Asham
Boyle-Halpern-Rupp
Haley

Staal-McDonagh
Del Zotto-Girardi
Stralman-Bickel
Sauer

If he didn't deserve it before, I think Howsen just lost his job. Amen

Yep, with Nash and Weber going East, the Eastern Conference only gets stronger. It is odd how the Western teams are willing to shoot the conference in the foot and trade star players to the East. This is a big shift from NCAA style conference loyalty.

Do they not realize that there are a significant number of fans that will come to games just to see whatever big name is in town?

Who cares if another team in our division got weaker. How does that help us win a cup? As a matter of fact, it doesn't really help us with the division either considering the Blues are essentially the same team as last year and so are the Hawks. I don't understand why anyone thinks that Columbus getting worse (worse than dead last) is in any way beneficial for us.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Not to defend Howson as he's clearly a terrible GM, but that's a pretty good package for a 70-80 pt player. He got more than any return I can think of for a single player.

I think the only valid complaint is that he was likely offered more and turned it down because he didn't want to trade him within the division.

I'm not looking forward to my Bruins playing the Rangers after this trade. This could be a black n blue series.

Goaltender = Mason

If you're going to trade the best player away, to me it makes the most sense to move him to the other conference where you're going to play against him the least.

I'm not sure why they'd have conference loyalty. If I were a GM trading a star player, I'd sure want to put him in a place where he can do the least amount of damage to my team.

Breaking: Columbus and Nashville to merge into one single team to make up for losses.

The CBJ's get a grinder a floater and AHLer and a pick that will be in the end of the draft.

Anisomov has more playoff goals than Nash.

Does this make Howson worse than Matt Million?

I was referring to GMs within the NHL.

Edit: I think you mean Matt Millen.
