I can't remember where I saw it, but I believe it's possible for players who have those clauses to waive them which would make them eligible for the unprotected list. I will have to do some searching to see if I can find the article that referred to this.

IF that is the case, it would be a boon for the Rangers.





I saw that to and pretty sure it's true.

That is true, a player with a NMC or NTC can waive to be eligible to go "unprotected." Waiving their clause is on a case by case basis though, as the power remains solely with the player. Waiving the clause to go to Vegas for example, doesn't mean you can turn around and trade him to Buffalo if he doesn't get claimed.

The other part of this is that Vegas will supposedly have the right to begin trading shortly for futures. Draft picks and "don't take this player" trades are going to start soon. (i.e. NYR trades a 4th round pick to Vegas for future considerations... those considerations being, they don't take (X player) in the expansion draft)

Good article by Mirtle explaining how the expansion draft is figuring in to deadline deals and movement in the offseason:

Better to play in Vegas than the AHL or the press box. (Not that AV would do that regardless but I am sure that is going to be a real choice for some players)

Given the choices though, if I were a player I'd try to force a buyout and then sign wherever I wanted for market rate.

On a side note, the expansion draft rules are set up in such a way that Vegas is going to get some decent players. I think it's likely they'll be competitive out of the gate, especially with the way the point standings are set up. If they make a smart selection in goal, they'll likely have the personnel to be a respectable team. Or at least, not bottom feeders.

Yeah, and a top 5 pick? Not sure who "the next one" is of the 2017 class, but I know there's a few big talented centers this year

Jeff Gorton to Dan Girardi:

Gorton: Dan, the last thing we want is for you to be claimed by Vegas, but when you look at the reality, who will want to claim a 33 year old d-man who lost a step, and takes up $5.5 million cap space per season for the next 3 seasons? For the good of the team, we ask you to waive the NMC.

Girardi: Sure thing Jeff.

It's possible... I mean there's going to be much better, younger, cheaper defensemen available out there.

If he does that, I expect a briefcase of money to fall off the back of a truck right in front of the Girardi residence.

I mean if he's really a "team player" as everyone claims he'd do it for the good of the team, right?
