I wouldn't outright refuse to discuss any of our players right now...but from this list, I'd need a hell of a return for Hodgson, Ehrhoff, or Foligno.
Edit: To expand upon Foligno, his market value is probably a second round pick...I don't move him for that. I'm not saying I'd need a superstar coming back in a deal, but I can't picture a team realistically offering something so far above his market value that the deal would be worth it.
I agree. Nobody should be off the table, but I'd basically require an unfair trade in our favor for several of our guys I'd want to keep and the 3 guys you listed are tops of the list because Hodgson is basically our only top 6 center, Ehrhoff is our best defensemen, and Foligno has grit, talent, and potential.

You need a choice for "all of them". Noone should be untoucheable. Ever.
I listed everyone except the kids and I agree that nobody is untouchable. However, just because somebody isn't untouchable doesn't mean we should move them or that we should be actively trying to move them. Whether it's because we should keep them on the roster or because the return would be minimal.

Interesting selections, no Grigs, Girgs, or other prospects?
I purposely left the kids off the list. Originally I was just going pending UFA's (Miller, Vanek, Ott) and whipping boys (Stafford, Myers, etc.) but I figured I should just list the entire roster (minus the prospects) because I was curious to see how people voted on some of the other guys that we've been able to see for several years that are still under contract (Ennis, Kaleta, Ehrhoff, etc.)
