Default Here's a list of players on the trade block (NHL)

espn has an article of all the possible players that might be traded before the deadline. What players would you like to see your team trade for? And please be realistic about it.


Here is the list:

Goalies
Martin Biron, 26, Buffalo Sabres (14-10-4, 2.42, .917): Biron is in the final year of his contract, which pays him a base salary of $2.2 million and doesn't contain individual bonuses. Under the current free-agent system, he could be a restricted free agent on July 1, requiring his team to make a qualifying offer to retain his rights. Biron would be a good acquisition because of his age, experience level and price tag. But for those same reasons, the Sabres probably would want a first-round pick, top prospect or young NHL player in return.


Sean Burke, 37, Phoenix Coyotes (10-15-5, 2.81, .908): The veteran netminder has a current base salary of $4.5M with a player and team option for next season. Burke can exercise his option (which is very likely) at $4.25M or the team can exercise its option at $4.75M (which is very unlikely). Burke and the club have to exchange sealed envelops before June 30 to notify one another of their intentions. If both parties were to exercise their options, Burke's base salary would remain at $4.5M. He also has significant individual bonuses that could yield more than $500,000 in additional income. At this point, the Coyotes probably won't be able to get much in return for Burke and even may have to eat some money to move him.


Manny Fernandez, 29, Minnesota Wild (6-9-7, 2.39, .918): Fernandez signed a one-year deal last summer for $2.2M. He has individual bonuses starting at 20 wins, but he's unlikely to pass that threshold this season. If he makes the playoffs, he would be eligible for a $250K bonus if he won the Conn Smythe Trophy. Like Biron, Fernandez's age, experience level and price tag make him attractive, but his playoff performance last spring makes him even more valuable. The Wild would want value in return and stand a good chance of getting it.


Nikolai Khabibulin, 31, Tampa Bay Lightning (13-14-5, 2.36, .912): GM Jay Feaster says he isn't moving his No. 1 goalie, but if he changes his mind (GMs have been known to do that), he'll be saving quite a few bucks. Khabibulin's base salary is $3.5M this year with attainable bonuses that cap out at $1.25M. Tampa Bay has a club option on Khabibulin at $6.5M, with no individual bonuses, for next season. In its contract negotiation, the club agreed to the big pay raise for 2004-05 because Khabibulin was forfeiting the opportunity to test the market as a UFA by agreeing to a long-term contract. If the club doesn't exercise its option by June 30, they'll still owe him a $2M "kiss off" payment, payable on Oct. 1, 2005. Khabibulin would be a worthwhile investment for team that can afford him. Feaster would probably want a quality NHL player in return. Interestingly, if the club opted to cut its ties with Khabibulin after this season, they'd still owe him a total of $5M -- the $2M termination fee and $3M in deferred salary.


Olaf Kolzig, 34, Washington Capitals (14-27-4, 2.98, .902): Because of Kolzig's contract, GM George McPhee will be hard pressed to get much in return. Kolzig makes a base salary of $6.25M this season, will earn the same next season and gets a raise to $6.5M in 2005-06. So, any team that acquires Kolzig is on the hook for $12.75M over the next two seasons. If the Caps want to move him, they likely will have to pick up a good chunk of that money. As part of his contract, the Capitals also will have to pay Kolzig another $500K if they trade him.


Tommy Salo, 33, Edmonton Oilers (12-15-4, 2.59, .893): Salo makes a base salary of $3.9M this season, after which the club holds a two-pronged option: they can sign him for 2004-05 at $4.15M or they can sign him for two years at $4.35M per season. The cost-conscious Oilers likely will decline their options, allowing Salo to test the market. With that being the case, GM Kevin Lowe won't be expecting much in return. Salo might be good insurance for a team seeking some depth in the crease.


Roman Turek, 33, Calgary Flames (3-7-0, 2.93, .894): GM Darryl Sutter will be quick to shop Turek once new starter Miikka Kiprusoff returns from a knee injury. Turek makes a base salary of $4.25M this season and will earn $5M next season. The club holds a $5.25M option for the 2005-06 season. If they fail to exercise that option, they must pay him $1M. Because Kiprusoff and backup Jamie McLennan are reasonably priced, the Flames could afford to eat some of Turek's salary. If they want to trade him, they'll probably have to do just that.


Forwards
Peter Bondra, 36 (on Feb. 7), Washington Capitals (19-13-34, minus-14): A natural right winger who can also play the left side, Bondra's base salary stands at $4.5M. The club holds an option for next season at the same salary. If the Capitals forgo their option they'll still owe him $1M. While the terms of the option could hurt his trade value, Bondra is a worthwhile risk for the right team.


Rod Brind'Amour, 33, Carolina Hurricanes (5-12-17, minus-8): If GM Jim Rutherford can trade Brind'Amour without eating a major chunk of his contract, there ought to be an investigation. Brind'Amour makes a base salary of $5M this season, not including bonuses, and will earn the same amount in each of the next two seasons. Then, in 2006-07, he can exercise an option for another season at $4M. A dependable, hard-working center, Brind'Amour is overpriced at those numbers. He'll be very tough to trade.


Valeri Bure, 29, Florida Panthers (16-19-35, minus-1): Bure currently makes $3.1M and is in the final year of his contract. He can be a rental player for a playoff-bound team seeking a little offensive help on the right wing. If the Panthers can stay in the hunt for a playoff spot, they'll probably keep him.


Andrew Cassels, 34, Columbus Blue Jackets (5-11-16, minus-12): Cassels is out indefinitely with a broken foot. His contract calls for a base salary of $3.05M this season and next season, and a player option at the same amount for 2005-06. His trade value, already limited because of his contract, will depend on his health.


Robert Lang, 33, Washington Capitals (25-37-62, minus-1): Despite the fact that he's enjoying the best year of his career, Lang will be difficult to trade because his hefty contract. He currently earns $5M in base salary, not including individual bonuses, and is slated to make $5M in each of the next three seasons. If the Caps want to move him, they'll have to eat some salary again.


Georges Laraque, 27, Edmonton Oilers (2-5-7; plus-1; 57 PIMs): Teams looking for a tough guy who won't hurt the team defensively might be calling GM Kevin Lowe. Laraque, one of the game's best fighters, earns $1.275M this season and is under contract for two more seasons at $1.4 next year and $1.425 in 2005-06. Laraque has individual bonuses in his deal, but they don't start until he hits 10 goals or 25 points. In the right place, Laraque could be a very valuable addition.


Adam Oates, 41, Edmonton Oilers (0-7-7, minus-6): Oates signed a one-year, $1.925M (pro-rated) contract on Nov. 24. He'll likely add another $75K in bonus money. If a team thinks the playmaking pivot can still help, he's likely available for a late-round draft pick. Remember, less than a year ago, Oates helped the Ducks to the Cup final.


Jeff O'Neill, 28 (on Feb. 23), Carolina Hurricanes (10-17-27; minus-12): A three-time 30-goal scorer, O'Neill is skating in the final year of his contract, which pays him a base salary of $3.7. Under the current CBA, the club can keep his rights by making a qualifying offer. O'Neill remains a valuable asset despite a sub-par season. The Hurricanes might shop him, but they can demand value in return.


Geoff Sanderson, 32, Columbus Blue Jackets (9-13-22, minus-9): Sanderson earns a base salary of $3M this season, not including individual bonuses. He's scheduled to make $3M next season and $3.3M in 2005-06. Though he's cracked the 30-goal mark six times during his career, Sanderson will be tough to trade because of his contract.


Miroslav Satan, 29, Buffalo Sabres (18-13-31, minus-10): Satan is on the books for $4.75M this season and is scheduled to earn $5M next season. He's also owed a $250K bonus, payable on Jan. 10, 2005. Satan has great hands and a scorer's touch, but it will be hard to get value for him because of his contract.


Alexei Zhamnov, 33, Chicago Blackhawks. (5-9-14, minus-8): The Hawks will get plenty of calls for Zhamnov, who's making $4.5M in the final year of his contract. With no further financial obligation, interested teams won't hesitate to take a chance. The Hawks will have to create a bidding war to maximize the return on their asset.

Defensemen
Bob Boughner, 33, Carolina Hurricanes (0-5-5, minus-9, 80 PIMs): A hard-nosed defenseman who can help a contender, Boughner will attract several suitors on the trade market. He's skating in the final year of his contract, which pays him $2.15M. An interested team can rent him for the playoffs without any further financial obligation. The Hurricanes probably won't be able to get much more than a mid-round draft pick.


Sergei Gonchar, 30 (on April 13), Washington Capitals (5-38-43, minus-22): One of the league's top defensemen, Gonchar is currently sidelined with a shoulder injury. He's in the final year of his contract that pays him a base salary of $3.65M. Under the current CBA, the club can retain his rights by making a qualifying offer. If he's healthy, he's the most valuable asset in Washington and McPhee can demand value in return.


Sean Hill, 34 (on Feb. 14), Carolina Hurricanes (5-15-20, minus-10): Like teammate Boughner, Hill should be an attractive commodity on the trade market because of his contract status. However, because he's in the final year of a deal that pays him $2.05M this season, GM Jim Rutherford shouldn't expect anyone to offer him a sweetheart of a deal. If Rutherford moves Hill, he'll likely have to settle for a mid-round draft pick.


Scott Lachance, 31, Columbus Blue Jackets (0-2-2, minus-15): Although Lachance could probably help several teams, GM Doug MacLean could have a hard time moving him. Lachance makes a base salary of $2M and will earn the same amount in each of the next two seasons.


Luke Richardson, 35 (on March 26), Columbus Blue Jackets (0-3-3, minus-5): Another valuable role player, Richardson is overpriced in the current market. He makes $2.75M this season and will make the same amount in each of the following two seasons. Columbus likely would have to eat some salary to move the gritty defenseman.


Todd Simpson, 30, Anaheim Mighty Ducks (4-3-7; minus-6; 105 PIMs): Last year, GM Bryan Murray was a buyer at the trade deadline. This year, he'll be a seller. He should get a few calls about Simpson, who's in the final year of a $1.5M deal. With almost no financial risk, a contender might want to add Simpson for blue-line insurance. He won't bring more than a late-round draft pick in return.


Alexei Zhitnik, 31, Buffalo Sabres (4-18-22, minus-6): A veteran puck-moving defenseman with big-game experience in the final year of his contract ($3.75M), Zhitnik can be valuable bargaining chip for GM Darcy Regier. An interested team would have no further financial obligation to Zhitnik after the season.
