How much are you willing to pay for cap space?

i think the only player that i would trade away with a first rounder is redden because his contract is the longest.
drury's contract expires in two years, giving adequate time to develop prospects (like stepan, kreider, anisimov to an extent..).
rozsival's contract also expires in two years, and he's probably the most "tradeable" of the three big contracts, as he plays closest to his value and is only a cap-hit of 5M (compared to 6.5M and 7M).
on the other hand, redden's contract expires in four years, has played terrible this year, and is basically taking up a roster spot that should go to sanguinetti or someone else (UFA).
kotalik still has some value, not to mention his contract is shorter and not worth trading away a top-round draft pick.
brashear's contract is god awful, but again not worth trading away a 1-2 rounder.
