Under the terms of his deal, he had until the end of the last season’s Stanley Cup final to provide the Senators with a 10-team no-trade list, but it was never submitted.
Fisher’s contract clause
Following is the exact wording in Mike Fisher’s contract that explains how his no-movement clause worked and when it expired:
The Club shall not trade the Player until the completion of the 2010 Stanley Cup finals. Commencing on the day immediately following the 2010 Stanley Cup finals (the “2010 Stanley Cup Finals Date”), the Club may trade the Player. Not withstanding the foregoing, on or before the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals Date, the Player shall be permitted to provide the Club with a list of ten (10) NHL member clubs to which he shall not be traded (the “no trade list”) and the Club agrees that it shall not trade the player to any NHL Club on the no trade list.
In the event that the no trade list is not so timely provided, the Club shall be permitted to trade the Player to any NHL member club in its sole discretion.
