It should be pointed out Pronger was traded 3 times. lol
Also as other pointed out Chara was signed as a UFA. Suter was also signed as a UFA last summer.
Niedermeyer, Pronger, Suter and Chara are/were all Norris caliber defensemen
On the flip side the only Hart caliber center I can think that was traded in recent memory was Joe Thornton
