6/16/16 | 3PM: In January, Larry Brooks spoke with Dan Girardi's agent and Girardi's agent Don Meehan said that Girardi's contract features "a full no-move in the first 3 years and then in the last 3 years he can be traded to 15 teams." (NY Post)
Today, Salary Cap website General Fanager reported on twitter that Girardi has a no-move clause throughout his entire contract as well the modified no-trade clause in the final three years.
He said that he has received the contract language and said that it doesn't contradict what Brooks was told and noted that while the modified no-trade "governs trades," the no-move would apply to all other types of transactions, such as waivers.
Cap Friendly, another salary cap website, confirms the General Fanager report of the no-move clause throughout and the 15 team no-trade list.
It is not known what impact this has on the expansion draft next summer.
Adam Rotter: It's all very confusing but it would seem that Girardi has a modified no-trade in his final three-years as well as some protection from being sent to Hartford. The Rangers wouldn't send Girardi down though because the cap savings would be minimal. I would think though that the modified no-trade would leave Girardi open to being exposed. That is just my interpretation though since he doesn't have the full protection that is part of his contract in the first three years.
