I think it would take an unusual/unexpected/highly unlikey circumstance for the Habs to trade any of:
Price, Subban, Pacioretty, Galchenyuk - because they are the perceived future core
Gorges, Eller, Desharnhais, Markov, Leblanc, Tinordi - for a variety of other reasons
Gomez - well, because nobody will take him
pretty unrealistic to exempt a lot of the players that are on the lists.
from MN only Koivu would be truly untouchable.
We have some great prospects but I'm certain Fletcher would dish them away if the return were phenomenal. It wouldn't have to be other-worldly and idiotic (Crosby for Granlund durrrrr) but he's very attached to Granlund, Brodin, and Coyle so if they're gone it would probably be for something the other GM found reasonable but a lot of fans wouldn't.
That being said, we're finally a skilled young team and one with almost no links to the old regime, which is where Fletcher wanted this to go. I see no real reason he'd shake it up now by dishing the foundation of the team (Koivu) or any of his hand picked top shelf prospects.
Alex Pietrangelo(Young, future franchise Dman)
Would need a very good deal to move:
David Backes(Captain, leader, best center by a wide margin. Would need a better C coming back)
Vladimir Tarasenko(Very high ceiling)
Kevin Shattenkirk(We don't really have anyone to replace him)
Bogosian is probably the only true untouchable for the Jets.
Are all very unlikely to be traded
I agree with this.
However there is another way to look at this. From a management perspective, I don't see Bogo or Ladd being moved to be honest. Ladd was really the face of the franchise when the team first moved. He's also a pure character guy and the type of player they want to attract. I think he'll be a jet for the rest of his career.
That being said, I think alot of the players could be had for the right price, but it would have to be the right price. I'd also add Byfuglien and Stuart on there.
