As for Columbus, it's only a matter of time before Brassard and especially Prospal, Pahlsson, and Huselius (if healthy) are shipped out. All could get some very nice returns. Prospal is going to gain a lot of interest from playoff teams, as will Pahlsson. Brassard may be able to get the Jackets a young player in need of a change of scenery in return; I could see a player-for-player swap there. Huselius is a good player when healthy, but that very well could affect the return he'll bring back. The Blue Jackets will be sellers for sure, but I do not think they will trade Jeff Carter.
I think Hemsky will be moved, but the return won't be nearly as much as some are predicting.
Carolina should be sellers as well and have a bunch of players that playoff teams would love to acquire. Ruutu, Gleason, and Allen specifically will all fetch good returns if traded. I'd imagine a bunch of teams would be interested in all three. Ponikarovsky and even Stewart both might be able to fetch an alright prospect or late pick.
