Rene Bourque (3.33million) Should be easily tradeable, possible 2nd round pick if he has a decent season or a 3rd.

Brian Gionta (5million) Gionta's production is just not worth the cap hit. Montreal would need to do a cap and trade with the other team. 3million would go their way and we would take on 2million. 2nd round pick in return best case scenario.

Andrei Markov (5.7million) Buyout Markov and his big contract. With Tinnordi and Beaulieu, both of these defenseman should be given every chance to make the club now.
Those are bad contracts that no one wants now. You'd probably have to include draft picks and/or prospects just to move them, unless you wanted a bad contract in return.

At the trade deadline, teams will be looking for expiring contracts that won't be impacting their cap next season.

Some of these may have some decent trade value at this time next year, providing they stay healthy and produce.
