Just Say No

From Elliotte Friedman at CBC,

None of the general managers agreeing to these no-trade or no-move clauses are doing so under penalty of death. And the idea that the sudden explosion of said causes is single-handedly killing the trade market is a joke. Trades aren’t happening because the NHL’s system creates paralysis. Yes, the no-trades are a part of that, but there are plenty of other issues. The NBA, for example, has all kinds of exceptions to allow manouverability that the NHL doesn’t.

Now, we’re talking about taking away no-trade clauses in the next CBA. How about doing what we tell our children: “Just say no.”
