IMO, it's Pronger.

He should net a good return of picks and prospects: perhaps a 1st, couple of 2nds, and 1-2 mid-to-high level prospects (think Tlusty, Osala, Stralman, etc)

Jbo.

A top 6 forward, 1st and good prospect.

I think jaybo stays, Pronger wants to stay in Anaheim, nut if he goes he will get the most in return

In terms of impact, I'd say Tkachuk. Jay Bo won't be traded.

They probably won't have a choice.

Making the playoffs would be absolutely pivotal for the Panthers. I think they'll take their chances will re-signing him and not trade him, assuming they're still in playoff position.

Chris Pronger and he should fetch a blue chip prospect, 1st, roster player.

Mr. Hattrick Olli Jokinen

Probably fetch a stud d-man prospect and a young top 6 forward. Maybe a couple of 1sts as well.

Mr. Hattrick

Gaborik. And he won't fetch as much as he should.

IMO, Jay Bouwmeester doesn't get moved. The fans are starting to come back and embrace this team. In the offseason, Florida management makes they best pitch, which will be better then anyone else, and if he walks, he walks. Florida keeps the fans.

The best player in play should be Pronger, if not Kaberle.

I'd say Tomas Kaberle or Ryan Smyth... each player will get around a 1st, 1 top prospect, and a average prospect.

I don't think Kaberle or J-Bo are getting traded, and I think ANA will keep Pronger and trade Niedermayer instead... so Niedermayer, and he'll fetch a 1st + top prospect + salary dump.

disagree,

Martin said if he can't sign him he won't lose him for nothing..

Jay-Bo will be traded if not signed by March 4th IMO and he'll be the best player available IMO.

He doesn't have to lose him for nothing, even if he keeps him. If Malone/Roberts can get a draft pick in the week leading up to July 1, surely J-Bo can as well.

If Smyth can fetch that much, it probably would have already happened. His contract doesn't appeal to too many teams, one would think.

If TB decides to trade him, Lecavalier.

otherwise if FL decides to trade him, JBO.

Otherwise its Pronger.

It has to be Gaborik..might fetch a similar package to what ATL got for Hossa last year. Maybe not in quantity, but i would expect them to have the same value..

Depends by what you mean by available.

Heatley is probably available for the right price.

Gaborik won't fetch a Hossa-like trade. He's too injury prone unlike Hossa

Hossa's also the better player, and puts up more points, and doesn't need a skilled centre to put the points up, and as you said, Hossa isn't made of glass (holy commas, Batman).
