If you dont think they are tanking compared to say...the flames then i dont know what to tell you
Ehrhoff hasn't been traded.Moulson,Vanek,Ott and Miller have this year and that's because all were impending UFA's and were not going to re-sign.Oh, you also want to know what we got in return for trading those 4?

Vanek-Matt Moulson,NYI 2014/2015 1st,NYI 2015 2nd
Miller & Ott-Halak,Chris Stewart,2015 1st,conditional 2014 1st,Carrier
Moulson-2014 WPG 2nd,2016 MIN 2nd

So at the end of the day,we turned Vanek,Miller and Ott into

NYI 2014/2015 1st
STL 2015 1st
STL 2014 1st (conditional,will be this or a 2015 3rd)
NYI 2015 2nd
WPG 2014 2nd
MIN 2016 2nd
William Carrier
Chris Stewart
Michael Neuvirth (traded Halak+3rd for him)

So we ended up getting 2 guaranteed 1st rounders,a conditional 1st/3rd rouder,3 2nd rounders,a 26 year old 25 goal scorer in Chris Stewart,a 26 year old mid end #1 goalie in Neuvirth and a recent 2nd round prospect in Carrier.I would say the return we got was a lot better then any "development" Ott,Miller or Vanek would have taught for the last 20 games of this season.
