Remember, some teams need to get to the cap floor. The Islanders acquired Tim Thomas this year just to get to the floor.

If an aging headcase goalie who isn't going to play can get traded then I fail to see how a decent centreman and decent puck moving defencemen are untradeable.
Big difference in your example is that Thomas was under contract, but suspended for not playing and therefore was not getting paid. He was simply a Cap hit with no $$$ attached.

Someone has to pay Grabs $5.5 mil and Liles almost $4 mil when acquired.
