For the betterment of the team, you trade the guys that you have the ability to trade without their permission if you're in that spot. So Pavelski and Boyle are definitely guys you want to deal to the highest bidder. Thornton and Marleau only go if they request it. The problem with the tank idea is that it is likely that the latter two stay even with a sinking ship and that with them on the team, they will never be bad enough to tank for a generational talent or even another Marleau-like player that's a damn good complimentary piece but not your guy you build around.
