the problem about trading away shanahan and jagr is 2 fold.

1, i feel keeping shanahan around these guys will help their maturation and understanding of what needs to be done to play the game at this level. hes a good leader to have.

2, jagr shows the guys what its like to win, if we didnt have jagr, wed be probably vying for the first overall pick. Also, hes an absolute steal with his contract, trade him next year if you must.

Id be more interested in trading guys like..

Pock (i like him, but it looks like the club doesnt)
Immonen (see above)
Weekes (useless right now, could get back a decent return, possibly a 2nd round draft pick)
Straka (1 year deal left, and is producing big time, could get a good young player, or possibly a first rounder from a desperate team)
Nylander (probably get a first rounder for him)
Cullen (3rd rounder probably)
Malik (bag of pucks)
Rozsival (might give us a good return, which is why i would move him)
J. Ward
A. Ward

basically the only guys i would call untradeable right now are
all the b-a kids

if we gutted our team, i could see us getting back, maybe 2 first rounders, several prospects, a few 2nd and 3rd rounders, etc.

would DEFINITELY help to move the rebuild along.
