In the NHL world, franchises are always trying to improve their rosters, and sometimes you need to give up a good asset in order to receive one in return. A perfect example of this was illustrated in the Tyler Seguin trade.
The Dallas Stars dealt a prime asset in Loui Eriksson but received one back when Seguin joined their ranks. Each team in the NHL has an asset they would be willing to move, and this slideshow will look at the top assets from each team.
Obviously, Sidney Crosby or Steven Stamkos would be very desirable, but they are not going to be traded.
For context, assets in this slideshow will refer to players and prospects that teams would be willing to trade, players that are going to become UFAs or players that could be moved to free up cap space.
Disclaimer: This is just an opinion; please don't take it personally if your favorite player is "traded" away in this article.
