Players on the trading Block

Just going through the internet, newspaper, and some TV and the radio (fan 590) here are some players who could be on the trading block right now, and a quick note on what their respective teams might be looking for/why they're on the block

JS Giguere - cap reasons
Todd Marchant - role player in exchange for scoring depth
Kari Lehtinen - RFA next suummer, pushed out by Pavelec
Ray Whitney - ? He could become a deadline rental if Canes keep struggling.
Patrick Sharp or Kris Versteeg - might not move one until next summer, cap reasons
Brian Campbell - cap
Cristobal Huet - cap
Fabian Brunnstrom - for a puck moving d-man?
Nathan Horton - rumour that hes been unhappy in Florida, wants out
Alex Frolov - could be a rental at deadline, rumour: not getting along with Terry Murray
PM Bouchard - injured/inconsistency, Chuck Fletcher could be shopping him
Derek Boogaard - partially replaced by Clutterbuck, Fletch is looking to make changes
Josh Harding - Could be a starter, maybe? Backstrom is the man in Minny
Carey Price or Jaro Halak - Just some rumours floating around out there
Marty Biron or Dwayne Roloson - once Dipietro gets healthy, although I'm hearing Biron more likely to be dealt
Chris Higgins - struggling, UFA in the summer
Ed Jovonovski or Ilya Bryzgalov - Salary reasons (not cap, just salary for the Coyotes)
Martin St.Louis or Ryan Malone - same deal, TBay is losing $
Vesa Toskala - just not playing well enough.
Michael Nylander - cap move
Alex Ovechkin - in exchange for depth centre, secondary scoring, and solid #3-4 dman.

the ovechkin one might hold water if you add to the end of needs:

a 1st & a 1st & a 1st & a 1st & a 1st and maybe a 4th. lol

as for the leafs if they want ovechkin then they need to dump cap space... Blake, Stajan, Finger, Mayers, 3rd.

oh and dont forget... 2012 1st, 2013 1st, 2014 1st, 2015 1st, 2016 1st, 2017 1st. (one extra 1st because of the lack of 2010/11 picks)

...*looks at deal again* ...I'd do it. lol
