    So because Marchant had a no trade clause with Columbus, the ducks can trade his sorry behind to any team that will take him?

    Who wouldn't want Marchant? Columbus is eating half his pay, i'd take him.

    Columbus is not eating half his salary. Marchant was never assigned to the minors. If he was recalled from the minors and claimed on waivers, then Columbus would be taking on half the salary. But right now Anaheim is paying his entire salary.

    Marchant was never traded though was he? He was a waiver claim. So I think he no-trade clause still stands.

    If I'm not mistaken, the 1/2 salary rule applies only to re-entry waivers.

    Indeed you are not mistaken.

    The half-salary rule only applies to callup/re-entry waivers.

    For normal waivers the claiming team picks up the whole salary and cap hit. The old team is free and clear.

    For callup waivers, the claiming team and old team split the players salary and cap hit (for the remainder of the contract) 50%/50%.

    Marchant was claimed on normal waivers. He was NOT send down and recalled, so the callup waiver rules do not apply. The Ducks are on the hook for his whole salary and Columbus is completely off the hook.

    Actually, this is not anything new. It was exactly this way under the old CBA:
    Under the old CBA, the UFA age was 32 yo, dropping to 31 in '98.

    Under this term, it is only NTC's that haven't kicked in yet that are invalidated by a trade. An active NTC that has been waived by a player to facilitate a trade that he approves or the NTC of a player picked up on waivers (see Marchant, Todd) are still binding on the new club.

    The more I see of the new CBA, except for the obvious new additions and changes that have been publicized (salary cap, callup waivers, etc), the more and more it looks very much like the old one. As a rule of thumb, I've just assumed that if I haven't seen any evidence to the contrary, the terms of the new CBA are similar/identical to the old, and I've rarely been disappointed.

    Well, he wouldn't waive it to go to Anaheim, so I'd be shocked if he wouldn't waive it should Anaheim want to trade him
