Blacker, Holzer, Ross, Mckegg, D'amigo, Ryan, Deschamp, I would dangle. Have secondary prospect value. Not unlike what NY gave up for Nash.

Ashton, Kadri, Colborne, Frattin are close. Wouldn't make too much sense to trade a young good NHL prospect unless you are getting an elite player(s) back.

So the guys that are most movable are core pieces, Kessel, Bozie, Lupul, Grabo, Kule, secondary core players Mac, Liles, Gunnar.

Connolly, Komi, Brown, and Lombardi will bring back a bag of pucks, if we are lucky a 3rd rd pick but most likely a 4th and lower. Franson, I don't know what his value is, a 3rd rd pick?

With many of our prospects on the cusp of making the team in 13-14 and boosting the support role depth and key roles on the D, it looks like a busy year for Burke.
One of the worst teams in the league for about 4 years straight.

I'd say this is the list of untouchables:

Next the tradeables:

Toronto Maple Leafs.

When your team is one of the bottom feeders you can move just about anyone.


Desjardins estimates that about 40% of the game is captured by Corsi analysis.
