    I thought Heatbag's NTC was voided after agreeing to one trade. Anyway, this is not good for the Isles or Lubo.

    The team taking on the player can agree to honour the NTC, and this is usually what happens as the player will only waive his NTC under those conditions.

    Wilson said on Sunday night that Heatley had a "window" in his no-trade clause open recently that turned it into a limited no-trade clause, with Heatley submitting a list of 10 teams to which he could not be traded

    SJ was still bound by his NMC.

    My understanding is the only time a team has the option of honouring an NTC/NMC is if they acquire a player before the NTC/NMC kicks in.

    Byfuglien convicted of careless boating. (Is that different than drunken boating?)

    The judge gave him hard time with a big 2 day sentence of picking up garbage. Buff's agent felt that his community service (remember, we are talking about 2 whole days here!) should be served in some sort of hockey related capacity, but the judge refused, saying that Buff would be treated like anyone else. Everyone else gets a suspended sentence which reduces their actual time to 1/15th of the sentence, and a fine which equates to roughly 1/5200th of their yearly salary. Allegedly.

    Not good. If the trade isn't voided, how can he show up in the dressing room after this?

    I am sure Nabokov can give him some pointers.

    Preds-Flyers talking trade in the wake of the Weber offer sheet?

    http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/2012/07/23/philadelphia_flyers_nashville_predators_shea_weber_trade_talks/

    Not a lot of options here but perhaps a trade of picks after if the Preds "agree" to not match...

    Visnovsky files grievance with the NHLPA claiming that his trade to the Islanders violated his NTC, which he had waived to escape from Edmonton to Anaheim.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/lubomir-visnovsky-looking-void-trade-islanders-files-grievance-164713249--nhl.html

    his agent wrote:"It's not about Lubo saying he doesn't want to go to the Isles. He likes what they say. This is about establishing what's right."

    Umm, yeah. Right.

    Union is afraid of a precedent being set. I'm sure the NHLPA is pushing this.

    Dany Heatley to Pittsburgh? Apparently the offer was Dupuis, Martin + 1st but Minnesota wants "more than what Columbus got for Nash", but the counter was Kennedy instead of Dupuis...

    this all from NHLSS
