If we're talking about which 5 guys I'd like for them to hang onto above all others, it'd be:
Jurco (I doubt anyone will ask for him anyway, but he's young and a first year pro - I still like the upside)
Mrazek (meh, but they'd have absolutely nobody in the pipeline if they dealt him)
I still don't buy Tinky Winky, although he's closer to making my list than I thought he'd ever be. Making progress. Tatar and Nyquist are both small skilled players - that's nice and all, but they don't have the look of elite scorers to me. I'd move them for the right return without too much hesitation. There's no room for them anyway.
Otherwise there's not a lot to get excited about. A lot of boom or busters that are at 90%+ probability to bust. Backman and Marchenko will have to put in some AHL time before we'll really know how they are as NHL prospects.
Nyquist doesn't make your list because he is a "small skilled guy"... but you're #1 untradeable guy is Jarnkrok.
They are both 5'11, with a similar build, and will be about the same weight at their physical prime.
A bit contradicting here...
And Nyquist does not look like an elite scorer to you? Might want to check his stats out when you get a second.
