Now that Sundin has confirmed to the hockey world he is not waiving the NTC for any deal, the Leafs are left with few options to improve the club for the future before the trade deadline. The ripple effects of Sundin and the other 4 Leaf players not waiving their NTC’s will surely be felt by other players currently on the roster. One can expect that Fletcher will now turn to trading the likes of Gill, Antropov, Ponikarovsky, Blake, Stajan, Wellwood, White, Kilger, Steen, Devereaux and possibly Toskala in the hopes of securing whatever assets he can to repair the rubble left by this sinking ship. The NTC players should realize that this ripple effect will surely affect their status with the team for next season whether good or bad.
