from David Pollak of Working the Corners,
...I’ve seen the trade speculation out there, some of which I’ll chose not to dignify with a specific reference.
But before anyone gets too heated up over what may or may not be going on, a reminder that both Patrick Marleau and Marty Havlat have contracts with no-movement clauses in them while Dan Boyle has a modified no-trade clause in which he can limit his possible destinations.
At the end of the season, I asked Marleau if he might be willing to waive whatever no-movement clause he has in his contract if Doug Wilson approached him with a possible trade partner.
“We’ll cross that bridge if it ever comes up,” Marleau said, leaving a little wiggle room.
I decided it was time for a follow-up call, reached Marleau, reminded him of his earlier response and asked if the issue has come up this week.
“I’m not at that bridge,” was his stick-to-the-metaphor response.
