I've come to realize that when people here say "this guy is untouchable", they really mean "I don't think another GM would offer what I'd want in return to move him".
Yeah it's more like it. It comes to the point that it's unrealistic to expect the player to be moved.

Like Alfredsson for example. He means so much to the Sens that it would require a massive overpayment from another team and no GM would be ready to pay the price. Another reason why players like Toews, Stamkos, Doughty, Crosby... don't get traded. Too important for their team

Of course, anyone can be traded as Gretzky got traded before.

I think Karlsson and Spezza are now in that category and the rest (Lehner, Cowen, Silf, Zib, Turris) is who I want to build around

That's the point

The only players that are untouchable are proven young players that you build your team around (Karlsson, Cowen) or players that have been with your team season after seaon (Neil, Phillips, Spezza) these guys have basically become the "franchise". Superstar status doesn't even really matter (see: nash)

Lol @ so many ppl voting Lehner. Ya he's amazing goalie but he isn't "untouchable" good players get traded all the time.
Hmmm... I realize I shouldn't have used the word "untouchable" as it creates confusion...

If you read the OP for more than 10 secs, you understand that it's more about who we want to build the team around... Not "untouchable" like "even if you offer me Malkin, Crosby and Letang I would say NO!"
