Why are people thinking that UFA rights are going to get traded? Other than Bouwmeester, what player's UFA rights have been traded in recent years?

No one is trading for Marleau's or Volchenkov's rights. I doubt the devils will negotiate to re-sign Kovalchuk at the same time they are negotiating to trade his rights.

Calgary was confident that Bouwmeester would sign with them. Can any team say with any confidence that Marleau, Volchenkov or Kovalchuk will sign with them? Maybe if they are willing to give those players the most money, but then they could do that on July 1st.
