Updating the story on the Avalanche's decision to buyout Francois Beauchemin, his agent says that his client was never asked to waive his no-movement clause.
One possible reason to buyout Beauchemin would have been had he refused to waive his NMC because that would have forced the Avalanche to include him in their list of protected players for the expansion draft unless they parted ways with him. If Colorado never asked him to waive it, then it's possible that they could have freed the slot without buying him out, though they're getting the freed slot now either way. Avalanche GM Joe Sakic told Beauchemin that the decision to buy him out came from a desire for the team to get younger. That said, the Avalanche are still on the hook for his full $4.5 million cap hit next season because he was inked to an over-35 years old contract. Jun 15 - 10:49 AM
