Players your team would NOT trade
I just see a lot of "Oh we'd never trade this player" , so just like to hear who you wouldn't trade
Koivu, Granlund, Brodin, Heatley, Cullen. Don't ask, just accept.
anyone can be traded, don't kid yourself
I'd hope the Flyers would trade anyone if it made them a better team.
These are the guys I don't think Buffalo would move for any kind of reasonable return. List is mostly younger players because the Sabres traded away a lot of their veterans and gave the team to these kids. They're at least not going anywhere for a season or two, IMO.
- Tyler Myers (no explanation necessary)
- Jason Pominville (revolving door of ineffective captains finally stopped with him, and he's our best all-around forward)
- Marcus Foligno (team desperately needs what this kid brings, and the family history with the franchise doesn't hurt either)
- Cody Hodgson/Tyler Ennis (at least not yet. Not because either is OMG!inexpendable, but because our NHL center depth without either is pitiful, and the organization seems very high on their future and kind of enamored with Cody's work ethic/leadership potential. If/when Grigorenko and Girgensons are in the NHL, then someone will have to go)
Unlikely to be moved:
- Ryan Miller
- Christian Ehrhoff
I'll preface this by saying these are players unlikely to be traded from either of my teams.
*Only in the event Luongo is traded, although to some he untouchable even now.
why wouldn't a guy like Clarkson be traded?
For the B's I'd argue only Chara is safe. Then Bergeron is in the 95% sure category, Seguin and Lucic maybe Hamilton a step below, everyone else is fair game
The the above poster, Clarkson does a lot in the community here in NJ, real team player, and really bought into Lou and would more than likely take a discount to play here.
Maybe Johnson and O'Reilly too.
But yeah, very very unlikely those two would be traded to I agree, but there's virtually a 0% chance the 3 I named get moved unless they ask for it.
To move 22 yr old Tavares, I'd want a young center back with similar or higher upside: Stamkos. Now that trade makes no sense for TB because Stamkos outproduces Tavares, but that's the type of return I'd want for the Tavares.
Other NYI, I think would cost an overpayment for would be Hamonic, Moulson, Grabner and Okposo. Hamonic because he's developing into a stud and Moulson/Grabner/KO because of their team friendly contracts.
PK Subban and Josh Gorges would need a HUGE return.
History suggests anyone can be traded. The best player in the game. Players on no-trade contracts. Players that have just signed lifetime deals. That said, players most unlikely to be dealt on the TML would be:
JVR - JVR gets in here as do a few on the list because of potential and the size he adds to the top 6.
You can add the Leafs 2013 first round pick to that list.
The next tier in terms of value -- not tradability -- because anyone can be dealt would be:
Lupul - again a top 6 with some size.
Grabovski - not a number one but the teams top center
Few players that play a vital role and have value, but that value has largely been defined and you know what you'd be giving up.
As a rule you don't trade young assets when rebuilding. Not when these assets are only going to increase in value. It's just hard to tell what you are giving up here.
Brown -- every team needs a 13th forward
Their contracts and poor play indicate their spot would be better served by playing a young kid and spending the cap room on an elite player.
Joe Pavelski (yes, he is untouchable people!!)
Patrick Marleau (despite what some want, he is never leaving the Sharks)
The only player who has no chance of being traded both on Avs and Habs is Milan Hejduk.
I wouldn't trade from the Panthers
I know my list isn't superstars but these players have actually done very well for our team, or are very great prospects with a lot of promise. (Mueller is new but I am excited to see him play)
There are other players that are highly unlikely to be traded but I can't see a trade that another team would be willing to make that the Blues would make involving one of those four.
Tavares . All others available if a trade makes us better.yes even Hamonic if a better player comes back
Datsyuk (If he shows he is headed back to Russia after his current contract and the wings are sucking he could get moved at the deadline)
