The Realistic Trade Deadline Options
There tends to be a TON of hype regarding players at this time, so maybe we can go through the realistic options so we aren't as disappointed come deadline day?
-Chris Butler, Anton Babchuk, and maybe Cory Sarich could be had. If the Flames were willing to deal their first and third rounders for O'Reilly, then those could be had too. Blake Comeau and Steve Begin probably don't hold much value but they are UFAs
-Joe Corvo is a veteran guy who could be had possibly.
-Shane O'Brien could provide toughness for a team.
-Do they move Vaclav Prospal to a contender, despite the gentlemen's agreement he had with Howson and Co. earlier? Adrian Aucoin also would likely be out there.
-Ryan Whitney is a guy who the Oil have obvious intentions of moving. Nikolai Khabibulin if healthy would be a nice backup for someone down the stretch.
-Yannick Weber and Tomas Kaberle, healthy scratches almost every game.
-Henrik Tallinder is probably on the outs here.
-They've been trying to move Marty Reasoner.
-Jason Demers could be used to gain forward depth
-Mike Komisarek has limited value, but his name is obviously out there. Same for Marlies' Tim Connolly.
Then there's the variables, where something must happen (being out of the playoff race, receiving salary back etc. must occur) These are more unlikely.
-Corey Perry, Brandon McMillan, Toni Lydman, Ben Lovejoy
-Drew Stafford, Ville Leino, Jordan Leopold, Alex Sulzer, Robyn Regehr, Adam Pardy, John Scott, Jochen Hecht
-Jarome Iginla, Jay Bouwmeester, Miikka Kiprusoff, Roman Cervenka
-Jussi Jokinen, Tim Brent, Chad LaRose
-Paul Stastny, David Jones, Chuck Kobasew, Ryan O'Byrne
-RJ Umberger, Derick Brassard, Nick Foligno, Mark Letestu, Steve Mason, Nikita Nikitin
-Eric Nystrom, Stephane Robidas, Brendan Morrow
-Drew Miller, Ian White, Jakub Kindl
-Ales Hemsky, Lennart Petrell, Magnus Paajarvi
-everyone but the kids and Kulikov/Campbell/Fleischmann
-Dustin Penner, Jonathan Bernier, Brad Richardson, Colin Fraser, Davis Drewiske
-Matt Cullen, PM Bouchard, Devin Setoguchi
-Ryan White, Petteri Nokelainen, Travis Moen (has NTC though)
-Brandon Yip, Hal Gill, Scott Hannan
-Mark Streit, Lubomir Visnovsky, Brad Boyes
-Brian Boyle, Steve Eminger, Matt Gilroy
-Sergei Gonchar, Ben Bishop, Latendresse, Andre Benoit, Mike Lundin
-Ruslan Fedotenko, Jody Shelley, Kurtis Foster
-Nick Johnson, Jason LaBarbera, Steve Sullivan
-Brian Elliott, Ian Cole, Wade Redden
-Michal Handzus, Doug Murray, Thomas Greiss, Scott Gomez
-Adam Hall, M-A Bergeron, Mathieu Garon, Nate Thompson
-JM Liles, Nikolai Kulemin, Dave Steckel, Mike Kostka, Cody Franson
-Roberto Luongo, Keith Ballard, David Booth, Mason Raymond
-Troy Brouwer, Joel Ward, Jason Chimera, Joey Crabb, Matt Hendricks, Wojtek Wolski, Eric Fehr
-Ron Hainsey, Nik Antropov, Kyle Wellwood
Then there's the super unlikely candidates, the guys who will be in speculation but have a 1% or less chance of moving.
-Bobby Ryan, Jonas Hiller
-Nathan Horton, Rich Peverley
-any forward with a contract beyond this year
-Jack Johnson, Brandon Dubinsky
-Jaromir Jagr, Derek Roy
-Valtteri Filppula, Dan Cleary
-Ladislav Smid, Ryan Jones
-Evgeni Nabokov (for now)
-Brad Richards, Marian Gaborik
-Daniel Alfredsson, Colin Greening
-Keith Yandle, Mike Smith
-Dan Boyle, Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Ryane Clowe, Martin Havlat
-Ryan Malone, Vincent Lecavalier
-Tyler Bozak, Phil Kessel, Clarke MacArthur (for now)
-Mike Green, Mike Ribeiro
I'd love feedback on how to improve the list, your thoughts on who's available, and if I can keep it updated, I'd love to. (I'm still building the list as this is posted)
