No roadblocks. And, once he's on the other team, it's not your problem.
Not true. There is at least one significant potential roadblock, depending on when you want to trade a player selected in the Rule 5 draft.
If you are pre-transaction deadline, then no roadblock.
If you are post-transaction deadline, you cannot place a player on revocable waivers and if you place him on regular waivers, it begins the offer-back process. The net effect is that Rule 5 players are effectively untradeable after the transaction deadline.
