As draft day nears, there are always “ideas” of trades, especially of the large contracts. Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s look at who the Rangers have given no-trade clauses (NTC) and no-movement clauses (NMC). Information courtesy of NHLSCAP.com:
- Chris Drury: Full NMC
- Scott Gomez: NTC – has 3 teams he will not accept a trade to.
- Wade Redden: NTC – has 8 teams he will not acept a trade to.
- Michael Rozsival: NTC – has 8 teams that he will not accept a trade to.
Essentially, everyone other than Drury is moveable. Is it likely that these guys will be moved? No. The player with the biggest chance of being moved is Rozsival, but that is also highly unlikely.
This is just food for thought while everyone comes up with their wild trade scenarios.
