Don’t Blame the Players

From Jim Kelley at Sportsnet,

As the trade deadline approaches across the NHL the topic of no-trade and no-move clauses has hit the front line of reporting and, not surprisingly by NHL standards, the players are being made to be the bad guys and general managers, the people in near complete control as to whether or not no-trades or no-movement clauses are made available, are doing the crying.

Now to be fair, Burke has a history of not giving them out and Fletcher inherited his, mostly from recently fired general manager John Ferguson, but that just makes it easier for them to carry the banner that reads as it so often does in the NHL GM ranks: Save Us from Ourselves.
