Give me your first born child and your first in 2015 and I'll consider trading them:

Chris Kreider
Ryan McDonagh

Requires significant overpayment to acquire:

Mats Zuccarello
Derek Stepan
Carl Hagelin
Henrik Lundqvist
Cam Talbot
JT Miller

Would prefer to keep, but would move in the right deal:

Rick Nash
Anton Stralman
John Moore
Derek Brassard
Derek Dorsett
Dylan McIlrath

Should be actively marketed:

Benoit Pouliot (although honestly I wouldn't mind keeping him - the resurgence has been fun)
Brian Boyle
Dan Girardi
Michael Del Zotto
Ryan Callahan
Dom Moore
Marc Staal

Doesn't really matter either way:

Justin Falk
Nononono There are so many crappy Ds in this League that we have to Lock him up long term. Look at Maple Leafs tonight or Calgary, Edmonton etc. Most teams would offer him big Money. If we let him go what will we end up With? Falk or Moore or some other crappy D that Sather signs????

Mcd, Girardi, Staal and Strålman are all legit top 4 Ds. Some of them suck because of AV coaching style. That has to change. Replacing them wont be easy.

Trade MDZ, J Moore and Callahan for some good D. Need to build a strong D core.
