    His contract basically assures the fact that he will never play for another team. That's a Gomez contract and this time, it's not movable.

    Crosby, McDavid, Ovechkin, Toews, Rinne, etc.

    Plus scrubs that only play a few career games (Kosmachuk, Melchiori, etc. for the Jets)

    ehhh I bet Quick gets traded, still worth a ton right now and that team needs a complete rebuild sans Doughty and Kopi.

    I think RNH will be a life-long Oiler. He seems to be very content in Edmonton.

    It's early but I'd be willing to bet MacKinnon and Rantanen play for the Avs for their careers

    I have a hard time imagining Mikko Koivu dressing up for anyone else than the Wild.

    Basically players that have their retirement contracts and any players the fan in question would hate to see ever go from their current roster. Every list done.

    Gomez got moved despite being much worse than Toews though. He's still a top 30 center

    Not easy to tell because I don't think many people thought for example Bourque and Alfredsson would ever switch teams

    I'm thinking Kadri would like to be, if that happens, doubtful.

    I feel like it's doubtful the Leafs will have much cap space to give Kadri a raise when his contract is up. Especially because Rielly's is up the same year and they'll obviously prioritize him over Kadri.

    Given how players contracts are moved around these days, I wouldn't bet on any player remaining with their team their entire career. But you never know.

    Need a ruling on this: Does Datsyuk count as someone who did?

    Yes.

    Players whose post-retirement contracts get moved do not count, they never put on the jersey for the 'new team', not even for press conference photos. It's purely a business move. The only exceptions to this are when a mostly career-long player signs 1 day contract or is traded back to their original club so they can officially sign their retirement papers as a member of that club. Then they usually do a press conference and don their old jersey.

    There is no point of speculating on anything that far in the future.
