He obviously not untouchable, but trading Tinordi would come as a shock to me

Why ?

Montréal traded up to get him. Just drafted him last year and our prospects in terms of play like Tinordi's go from Him -> Yemelin (might never come over, as he's 24) -> Greg Pateryn -> No one.

The Coyotes likely will have to move one or more of Turris, Boedker, MacLean, and/or Tikhonov. They aren't all making the team next year and they won't clear waivers.

I'm fine if Gillis moves Schroeder to improve the current team but we don't have a lot of top 6 prospects so I don't think Gillis is fast to move our 2nd/3rd best one.

Generally speaking, when people say team won't trade Prospect X, it's refering to trading him for a rental/soon to be UFA. Which right now all the talk is about.

Would Washington trade Kuznetsov for a rental? No. Would they trade him for a young established forward with plenty of upside left on a good contract? Of course, but those players aren't available.

Jordan Schroeder still has plenty of time to develop into a fine top 6 player but what makes him a steal at this point ? Because he was supposed to go much higher two years ago ? He's just a prospect like so many others.

Nobody is untradable.

Just remember once upon a time a little player named Gretzky got the boot.

From Toronto's list of prospects, these are the possible trade options IMO...

F Luca Caputi (injured pretty much all season, fell on depth chart)
F Jerry D'Amigo (in package if return is for very good U25 player)
D Juraj Mikus (they are high on him, but Schenn, Aulie, Phaneuf, Gunnarsson, Gardiner, Blacker are above him)
F Christian Hanson (capable of playing in NHL as 4th liner, Leafs have too many bottom 6 players/prospects)

I'm on the Canucks bandwagon, but I'll agree with this.

He was considered a steal on draft day like other smaller-sized forwards who fall down the draft (e.g. parise, esposito).

But he hasn't improved (or not improved) significantly since the draft. Nothing to point to whether he will be a top-line, top-6 player.
Doubt he alone would be enough to fetch a top line player

If we move Nino or deHaan for any reason I'm going to be so pissed.

What would you classify as a very good U25 player? Because D'amigo projects to be more of a top 9 player, not top 6. He was absolutely awful for the Marlies and has been good on a stacked Kitchener team.

I feel too many Leaf fans are way too high on him. He had a good WJC last year, and he's a good prospect, but it's going to take D'amigo++ to get a very good U25 player.

I'm curious, when was the last time a top-5 prospect was traded at the deadline. I really don't know.

I doubt that Morin would be moved if only because he's been injured for a while, so interested scouts haven't had the opportunity to see him in action. Beach is a much greater possibility in my mind.

I'd be interested in moving Boyes and Winchester to Montreal for Tinordi and a pick, however... Boyes gives Montreal more scoring, and Winchester gives them the big forward they keep looking for. Winchester's even learned how to plant his big carcass in front of the net and get some dirty goals, so that would be a benefit for the Habs in an Eastern Conference that has very few players who will do that (compared to the West).

Yes, but the most complete player to ever play the game was NEVER traded.

Gretzky was a phenomenal scorer, the best scorer of all time... but as an all-around hockey player, he couldn't carry Gordie Howe's skates.

Gordie Howe would light you up on the scoreboard, and if you got lippy, he'd light you up with his fists, too. The phrase "Gordie Howe hat trick" was invented for a reason...

What would the asking price be for Boedker or MacLean, just out of curiosity...

Iginla for Nieuwendyk ?
He was a high pick and was one of their top prospects.

If Regier is feeling pressure to win next season so that he can be around for the end of his contract in 2012-13, I could see Luke Adam being available. But likely only as a main piece for a top-6 center (think in the Stephen Weiss vein, even if not Weiss himself).

Looks pretty ridiculous to me. If any of those guys get traded, they sure as hell won't be for rentals. If anything, they will be traded for guys with at least 2 more years of RFA eligibility.

So the last time it happened was 16 years ago.

That lends very little validity to the idea that Kuznetsov or Schenn may be moved.

Beau Bennett? Really? Boom or bust prospect, doing respectable in his development, in an area of great need for the organization despite the trade for Neal. But mostly he would not bring value at this stage of his developement to justify a move. He is not untouchable, obviously, just not worth jettisoning for what he could bring the Pens. Silly speculation.

Interesting scenario for Maloney and Coyotes. You think they move before the deadline?

You think Burke will move out youth on or before deadline? I guess anything possible in Leaf-land.

Well in!

If you strongly think a player listed will not be dealt, at least provide alternatives for the "buyer" GMs in play. You gotta give to receive.

I could also see this list going 0/10 quite easily. But...it was not intended to be a Nostradamus (or even an Eklund! lol) prediction piece; rather, a thought-provoking article on looking at prospects that MAY be offered up in the elusive search for the missing piece that may be the tipping point for a team to land Lord Stanley's Cup.

Thanks for all the feedback and constructive criticism.
