Will GMs Avoid NTC In The Future?

from Jim Kelley at Sports Illustrated,

In the end, Heatley may have gotten what he wanted, but he paid a price that will forever tarnish his reputation and diminish his stock among GMs and especially coaches who will think long and hard about taking him, and players like him, into their ranks. He also created a sense among GMs and owners that they no longer have to play the role of victim and that the process must change. It’s a fairly safe bet that it will.

Don’t for a moment think that the next player who wants a big salary and a no-trade, no-movement clause will easily get it. Not without the name Dany Heatley being thrown back in his face.
