I think one way or another Holland will find a way to get rid of him.
Agreed. I'm thinking he's going to have to be a part of a package deal. Maybe Kenny can even pull off a trade that can actually be beneficial to our team, besides losing Sammy's contract. That would be too good to be true...
Haha, looks like the only way it's gonna happen is Sammy + a promising prospect for nothing.
Basically bribe a team to take him off our hands.
Did everyone forget he has an NTC? The only way he gets traded is if he WANTS to be traded. And it's probably going to be tough to convince a guy that he wants to be traded off a team that's projected to be competing with the Bruins for dominance in the East and is loaded with his countrymen. And if for some bizarre reason he did decide he wanted to be traded he would basically get to pick the team he wants to play for and Holland would have to bend to that teams will in trade talks.
So no, Samuelsson will not be traded. The only way he'll be "off" this team is if he gets seriously injured and goes on LTIR or we warp through time an it suddenly becomes July 2014.
