Sources indicate that players with no-move clauses will have to be protected by teams. The CBA states that a no-move clause “may prevent the involuntary relocation of a player, whether by trade, loan or waiver claim.”

According to capfriendly.com, 70 NHL players have no-movement clauses that would be active prior to July 1, 2017. If there was an expansion draft, it would be held prior to the entry draft in the spring of 2017.

Players with no-trade clauses, which allow a player to decline a trade to either all teams in the league or a modified number spelled out in his contract, are not exempt and can be left exposed.

Not the biggest fan of the choice.... Vegas I could see fading out of interest. The only thing that might keep it afloat is the large amount of tourists in the city.
