It's not just "big contract" players. It's been done with Boyle, Girardi, Staal, Del Zotto, and basically anyone else. In fact, there's a famous thread on the Rangers board where people seriously discuss the idea of trading Henrik Lundqvist because "Prince" Chad Johnson had a couple good games filling in. I know that this is the trade board but I strongly urge Rangers fans to sit and think about the crap they post before actually submitting it, because there's a good chance that, when offering a player to the entire NHL because of a bad month or two stretch, it's going to look incredibly stupid some time from now.
