Out of those, I think the Rangers won't part with Dubinsky or Staal, but could part with the others for the right price. However, dealing defenseman gets sticky unless they're getting a better one back. Edit, forgot about Callahan, could see him going as well, but I don't think he has a lot of value yet.
I agree Staal is probably off the table. However, I can't say Dubinsky is untouchable. Especially now with Sather taking his US Government style "I won't negotiate with anyone" stance, I think Dubi might be on the table for the right package. Part of Dubi's appeal has to be his ability to play with Jagr. If he isn't playing with JJ, he probably winds up a 3rd line center on this team, while he appears to be capable of much more. He might be able to get us more than he's worth to us in that case.
Not that I want to see him moved, but I wouldn't rule it out.
