Can a coach contract or a GM contract be a trade asset in the NHL? As a caps fan i would offer much for Shero and/or Babcock.

Yes

Quebec traded there coach(Michel Bergeron) to the Rangers in 1988 for a first round pick. As for a GM I assume no GM would trade for somebody to take his job. lol

Not anymore. Under the previous CBA teams could receive compensation for employees moving to other organizations, though I don't think any active head coaches ever were moved.

well certainly it would be hilarious for GMGM to trade himself to pens for Shero
But can franchise owners trade GMs?

why coach trades are so uncommon in the NHL? I think a proven coach is a high valuable asset.

5th overall to boot(although the pick was a dud - Daniel Dore)

It should be pointed out Phil Esposito was one trade happy GM for NYR, although that one takes the cake

To get Chiarelli, the Bruins agreed to send the Senators a conditional pick in the 2007 draft or beyond.

Trading GM's would be hilarious...the Leafs and Sens trade Murray for Burkie, and Burkie gets another Cup, but in Ottawa after Murray does all the work...

Lots of coaches and gm's have been traded in their playing days, now they are behind the bench or in the press box

There use to be compensation picks I believe if your team hired an assistant coach/gm under contract to be your new coach/gm but I think that stopped at the CBA?

The Oilers got a pick for letting Montreal hire Claude Julien.

Compensation can be given for coaches and gms currently under contract if they move to the same role in another organization

As mentioned, this is no longer the case. And "same role" was never an issue as far as I know.

I'm pretty sure the Wings would rather hold on to Babcock! And why do you want a new coach? Hunter has that team playing some serious playoff hockey for the first time in years!
