    Maybe this is some kind of message being sent. Maybe this is something the coach demands. It's definitely very bizarre. I've never heard anything bad about the guy. In fact the opposite was said about him upon his arrival and over the summer.

    Something must have happened off ice or with AV. Something stinks here and it's not just his mediocre play. This dude could have been traded. No doubt.

    ...and won't be picked up.
    Excited to see what Pionk can do. It's disparaging to hear about any attitude problems. Oh well. Maybe he'll mop the locker room floors or something.

    I'm all for getting rid of him, but they can't trade him for at least a 3rd round pick?

    No.
    Detroit was shocked when they got more than a 3rd rd pick at the deadline. We gave him a big contract - that's not going to make him easier to trade.

    Wow, what a waste!!! .....and I'll bet it's going to come out that he blew a shit fit last night. The guy's been terrible, I agree. He just doesn't fit this team's mold here right now.

    Best of luck someplace else, man...just feel bad we got nothing even in return for this guy. Another guy who's going to go somewhere else and probably win the fucking Norris trophy or some shit under a different coach. Ok, maybe that's going a little too far but this guy is far and away a serviceable player.

    Again, what a waste!

    With Redden, there were indications that he was in decline before he was signed. With Smith, he appeared to be on an upswing, although his longer term issues with Detroit should have been a warning. If it gets to the point of a buy out, I think he would be tradeable with half the contract retained, which is better than buying it out. One thing is clear, Smith has no right to complain about this demotion, because if he had been anything less than a disaster, he would have been traded for a 7th Round pick or would have been picked up on waivers. This comes as a relief. At least something is being done. One interesting note is to look back at the case of Andrew MacDonald. Philly signed him to a contract similar to Smith's after a deadline deal with the Islanders. He was so bad that he ended up waived and sent to the minors. He came back, however, and is still with the team three years later.

    I'm not too sure he doesn't get picked up. That contract isn't as monstrous as people are suggesting. I could see Winnipeg, Buffalo, Vegas or a variety of teams with cap space picking him up.

    But didn't he get a NMC? Can teams even pick him up? I guess that's why you are suggesting he doesn't get picked up?

    Awhile back, I made a claim regarding his personal life... the quick change of scenery and new found hope to play hockey got him out of the funk, but it didnt last.

    Time couple of years. Hopefully he can get it together

    Yeah, I wonder if they had a trade in place, he said no, so they said screw it and waived him.
    If so, do claiming teams still need his approval?

    OUCH !!!!!! This is bad for Smitty getting waived I can't imagine anyone picking this guy off waivers. Lets hope this is a wake call and he gets himself straightened out for next year. I know I was onboard with his signing.

    I copied this for you Josh:

    The Difference Between No-Trade And No-Movement Clauses And The NHL Players That Have Them


    No-Movement Clause (NMC) and No-Trade Clause (NTC) Eligibility:

    Once a National Hockey League player has played seven years or reached twenty-seven years of age (Group 3 Free Agent Status) he is eligible to qualify for the NMC or NTC in his contract. These clauses can start mid-contract once the player reaches his Group 3 status. (example: in the fourth year of a seven-year deal)

    There are basically two types of movement clauses NHL GMs need to pay attention to and/or work around with some players.

    The No-Movement Clause:

    A No-Movement Clause prohibits a team from moving a player by trade, waivers, or assigning that player to the minors without the player’s consent. This keeps the player with the pro team unless the player approves one of these moves. The player has the final say. Some players will often have a limited trade list here as well. A No-Movement Clause does not restrict a team from buying out or terminating a player’s contract.

    The No-Trade Clause:

    A No-Trade Clause is much less restrictive. It only places restrictions on movement by trade. A player with a No-Trade Clause cannot be traded by a team unless the player provides consent. A limited (partial or modified) No-Trade Clause is often less restrictive than a full No-Trade Clause and depends on the conditions negotiated in the player’s contracts. Often with these No-Trade Clauses, the player is asked to provide a list of teams to which he would be willing to be traded or NOT traded to. This list can change or fluctuate from season to season.


    and this:

    What is a Limited, or Modified No-Trade Clause (M-NTC)?
    A limited, or modified no-trade clause (M-NTC) is less restrictive than a full no-trade clause (NTC), and can be added to a player's contract in the years after they are eligible for Group 3 Unrestricted Free Agency (7 Accrued seasons or 27 years of age), and has the following properties:

    The player's contract includes specific terms in respect to being traded without their consent where the player must:
    In a specified timeframe or window:
    Specify a pre-determined number of teams the player would be willing to be traded to, or:
    Specify a pre-determined number of teams the player would not be willing to be traded to
    Consent is not required to be placed on waivers
    Consent is not required for assignment to the minors
    Player is not exempt from a buyout or contract termination
    The clause can travel with the player even if he consents to being traded or is claimed on waivers
    This requires that the acquiring team sign an addendum to the contract ensuring that the clause does in fact travel with the player (written by the player's agent)
    If the acquiring team refuses to sign the addendum, and the player waives his clause anyway, at that point the clause may be nullified
    If the player is traded before the clause takes effect, the acquiring team can opt to void the clause

    Example: Modified No-Trade Clause: Within 48 hours of request, the player must submit a list of 18 teams they are willing to be traded to without consent. If the list is not received within 48 hours, the player can be traded to any team without consent.

    Never liked this contract and quite frankly was never big on the player. Doubt anyone picks him up.

    There is an inclination to let our imagination create a rationale. Reading AV's statement and note from mgmt, maybe this is simply part of a rebuild/retool/whateverthefuckyawannacallit.

    The clue is in the first word, "Money"

    My money says this is about the money (and rebuild). Now if a team wants to pick up the contract, put in a claim. The Rangers will use that money (3 years worth) to bring back Grabs instead. Or whatever their plan is for the cap space.

    If he is not claimed he goes to the Pack and tries to improve. He/everybody gets the message. Either way it frees up a slot for a youngster to get some burn and mgmt to evaluate guys who should be near ready.

    "Everybody that's followed him since he's been here, there's no doubt that he has played better for us in the past and this year got off to a slow start," coach Alain Vigneault said. "We worked with him a number of different ways.

    "At the end of the day this might be a little bit drastic here, but management and the coaches felt that this was the way to go for our team right now."
