And the view that "everyone wants to get out of here" is pure conjecture. None of us knows anything about the motives of players. One would THINK some of the older guys want another shot at a cup (Kariya/Walt) but, at least that I've seen, there has not been a single solitary report that players have been making any such secret motivations known. Don't wildfire it into "everyone on this team hates it here."
I don't think that is what we were saying at all.
The fact that they all had NTC was brought up and I was addressing that I didn't think that would be an issue because I think any of them could be 'convinced' to wave it.
I agree, I've heard nothing about anyone wanting out (save Perron while AM was still here). And I've heard it would have to be a perfect situation for Walt to wave his.
I just don’t think Paulie, of Brewer, or Jacks would block a move.
And let’s not even talk about moving Andy Mac, as you stated he was our best player in the playoffs last year and currently he’s the only guy on the roster that you can definitively categorize as a first or second liner at the NHL level.
