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 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

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.
