    Who Will be Traded in the Second Half?

    So as usual we know that some of the less-than-spectacular NHL teams trade off some good talent to rebuild, so I want to see what others have been speculating.

    The two players I think will move:

    Kovalchuk and Brad Richards.

    Kovalchuk has been talked about and I think it will happen.

    Brad Richards came to mind because right now he is the best talent the Stars have and they are going to sink all season. He's showed that he can produce on any team, good or bad, so what contender wouldn't want him?

    Any other thoughts?

    • -J. Bouwmeester (FLA-D) (doesnt wanna sign back there... Like Luongo, like Jokinen)
      -M. Gaborik (MIN-LW) (asking to much for a resign in MIN)
      -T. Vokoun (FLA-G) (C.Anderson looks comfortable in net right now)
      -M. Schneider (ATL-D) (Wont be needed there)
      -M.Fernandez (BOS-G) (4.33M will need cap for a big name)
      -S.Zubov (DAL-D) (hmmmm his he reallly reqd there anymore?)
      -S.Avery (DAL-LW) (He's outta there)
      -D. Gauthier (LA-D) (more prospects for the kings)
      -B. Guerin (NYI-RW) (from losers to contenders)
      -D. Weight (NYI-C) (from losers to contenders)
      -K. Tkatchuk (STL-LW) (Prospect coming in for STL)
      -A. McDonald (STL-C) (a thinker for STL not that old but underachieving considering the salary)
      -M. Legacy (STL-G) (if the offer suits them hes outta there)
      -M. St-Louis (TB-RW) (Tavares is coming to Florida i guess)
      -M. Ohlund (VAN-D) (They're too far from what he wants this summer)

      ***I. Kovalchuk (ATL-RW) - Don Waddell said yesterday that he woulnt trade him, but who knows if the offer is right...***

    • lol the stars just traded for richards and it's not like theyre rebuilding now, if kovalchuk gets traded it wont be until next year when they know for sure if he will sign or not same with nash

      bouwmeester is very likely to get traded, nylander too, maybe t kaberle if he waives his no trade

    • Toskala out of TO

      • Kovy won't be dealt, and I've never heard of boymeister, bouwmeester on the other hand is almost certain to get dealt, i heard Ottawa making a big push for him.
        I think Toskala may get dealt, he's got to start playing better or Burke will just say see ya later because he wants to start re-building and would get picks/prospects and the chance to get Pogge some games.
        I dont think Kovy will get dealt because he's still got time left on his contract and prob will be more valuable in the summer or next years trade deadline. IMO anyways.

    • vokoun to detroit rock city.

    • Kovalchuk, boymeister, Gaborik will move to contenders.
      Pretty sure the Oilers will make a crappy trade if they are in the hunt. Rumors of Souray moving totally boggle my mind.
      but if anyone moves it will be those guys
