Is this a pet peeve for anyone else?
OP was written with effort and some guy trying to be funny says "No.".
Oh, and I totally expect someone to quote this and say, "No.".
Kesler has a NTC.
But if I was ever a GM (god help us all), nobody would ever be off limits. I'd make sure everyone knew that.
I would not shop Kesler, but if a team made an offer--maybe. The offer has to be good and from a team better than us though (he's not going to wave his NTC to go to NYI).
