At this point there are several guys that I am sure of the list of people we won't move:

Salvador

Henrique

Kovalchuk

Larsson

I think we try our best to sign Zajac long term...hopefully sooner than later....

Most people had him pegged at being picked somewhere between 16-20 in the Draft, so imo he was a pretty big steal at 29th.

EDIT: For me, I would say his NHL comparison is either a Dustin Brown or a Milan Lucic with less size.

I hope your right or at least in the ball park...errr hockey rink!

hey that was your 666th post ....watch out now!

I would think wedgewood is on the no trade list because of his solid development and the need of goaltending.

So is Larsson but I don't think the point of the post was to guage the likelihood that someone gets traded, just who would fetch the highest return.

I'm surprised people have Kovy so high, there were only 2 teams interested in him at the terms he was looking for when he signed as a FA, has the demand really risen?

I'll just do the players since I don't know enough about the prospects to really judge:

Players:

Travis Zajac

Adam Larsson

Adam Henrique

Patrik Elias

Ilya Kovalchuk

Jacob Josefson

Marek Zidlicky

Henrik Tallinder

David Clarkson

Anton Volchenkov

Dainius Zubrus

Mattias Tedenby

Bryce Salvador

Andy Greene

+ Spare parts that might fetch a low pick

Okay, I will try my hand at this, but I'm not ranking prospects (in part because the Devils don't have any)

Players-

Larsson

Henrique

Zajac

Fayne

Josefson

Elias

Zidlicky

Clarkson

Greene

Zubrus

Tallinder

Hedberg

Bernier

Carter

Gionta

Barch

Janssen

Kovalchuk

Brodeur

Salvador

Kovalchuk third to last Tri? I know he has a huge contract, but you don't thInk he could land us a 1st, good prospect and roster player at the trade deadline?

A team with cash on hand and could benefit from a lower cap hit would love a Kovalchuk. Like say a Philly or New York. I doubt he is third to last.

He's signed for 13 more years and had back trouble in this year's playoffs.
