Trade Bait

  1. Patrick Sharp
  2. Nick Leddy
  3. Michal Rozsival
  4. Johnny Oduya
  5. Kris Versteeg

Sharp thinks he’s untradeable and most fans hope he is, but his contract and scoring ability makes him trade bait heading into the free agent period on July 1st. Joel Quenneville‘s apparent dislike for Leddy in tight spots always will put his name on this list.  Rozsival has to be the one contract Stan wishes he could get back from last offseason giving him that second season so it looks like his contract is the one Stan would want to dump the most. Oduya and Versteeg are on this list because of their dollar amounts and that other teams could use their skill set.

Probably not Going anywhere due to salary cap but could be included in any trade

  1. Marcus Kruger
  2. Joakim Nordstrom
  3. Jeremy Morin
  4. Ben Smith
  5. David Rundblad
  6. Antti Raanta

The players on this list are by no means untouchable and could be included in any trade, but due to their small contract they will unlikely be moved at anytime during the next few weeks during the free agent period.

Who are you untouchables? Did we rank anyone too low or too high?
