Keep in mind that terminology is often misrepresented in news reports and social media commentary. But in some cases players will have No-Movement Clauses tied to their contracts with Partial or Modified No-Trade Clauses. These generally prevent the team from moving the player via loan or waivers, but give the team some options for trading the player. Teams must protect these players for purposes of expansion unless the player is willing to waive such clauses. Example: Marc-Andre Fleury has a NMC and Partial NTC that prohibits him from being traded to a 12 team list of his choice. Unless Fleury was willing to waive his NMC, the Pittsburgh Penguins must protect him.
