It's official. Mats Sundin will not waive his no-trade clause. Neither will Pavel Kubina, Darcy Tucker or Tomas Kaberle. Bryan McCabe might, if it's to the right Eastern Conference team. I'm guessing Uncle Cliffy will be doing a whole lot of nothing these next two days.
I'm giving Sundin a pass, because he's the classiest athlete to play in this city since Pinball, but why the hell did JFJ give these other guys no-trade clauses? These contracts will anchor our rebuilding process and make Uncle Cliffy's job all but impossible.
Welcome to the winter of our discontent.
