Mayers and Salvador - but they finally were dealt this past year.
Blues fans will propose
McKee and Stempniak
Other teams fans (Habs, Oilers) will propose
Depending on salary I would be really interested in McKee and Stempniak. Stemps plays RW does he not? Could be a legit winger (although younger he will improve) for the top 6 in Edmonton. I would prefer Stafford from Buffalo, but they might not trade with Lowe.
Havlat - I know, big shock, right? (2009 UFA)
Lang - Would be nice to drop his 4M... (2009 UFA)
Khabibulin - Obviously, a goalie would need to come back in return, so its not likely (2009 UFA)
Bourque - Only RFA left, not much of a place for him on the team
I can't wait until that 17M comes off the books next summer...
Ottawa is not trading any one from the big 3.
Fisher just signed a large extension that has a ntc somewhere in it (details are muddy)
our bottom six has absolutely zero trade value except for chris neil and chris kelly. Neil is not getting paid much, is a fan favorite, and is decent at what he does. Kelly just signed a 4 year extension, and though he might be slightly overpaid now, he anchors our pk.
on defence, we've got phillips and volchenkov signed to huge bargains (3.5, 2.5 respectively). After that we have lee (rookie, highly touted, untouchable), and schubert (basically no value).
that leaves the only two tradeable players who have value on our team: Meszaros and Vermette.
both are promising young players. Both will be much more awesome than they currently are. Its just that if ottawa is going to make a big trade, one of these guys will have to be in it.
