My List
Arron Asham
Brian Boyle
Marion Gaborik (depending on value)
Taylor Pyatt
Brad Richards (depending on value)
Steve Eminger
Matt Gilroy
Anton Stralman
Martin Biron

The above list shows some players that really haven't done all that much (if any at all). Pyatt and Boyle have done absolutely squat this year and could receive some interest. Eminger has been showing defense lately, Gilroy is Gilroy, and Stralman is in a slump although I'd like to keep Stralzy. Asham is good on the 4th line so I'm 50/50. I hope they don't trade Gabbs at the deadline, but he's on the market so I had to throw his name in the hat and Richards is startng to gain some momentum, but not much. Don't really like Biron. Never have.
Agree with this list, but for Stralman. Unless you're getting a RH D-man back, you can't move him.

Also, as regards the MDZ/Girardi debate, it's pointless until Staal proves he's healthy. At some point when he is healthy, you will need to move someone and while I agree that MDZ is a better asset to keep, again, we have the issue of LH/RH Dmen. Until one of them proves that they can play the right side or the team acquires at least one more (preferably two) top-4 RH Dmen, you have to move one of the LH triumverate before you move Girardi.
