On the eve of free agency, there have been several big trades in the NHL, notably two involving the Philadelphia Flyers, as teams attempt to remake their rosters for the upcoming season.

With all respect to Brad Richards, this is a rather lacklustre crop of unrestricted free agents hitting the market on July 1, particularly when it comes to forwards.

Expect to see more than the usual amount of trades over the July long weekend as teams decide trading is less expensive than getting into a bidding war over the few decent free agents.

General managers usually make foolish decisions when signing free agents on July 1. Will we see some foolish or lopsided trades as well?

With that in mind, here is a look at some of the worst trades in modern NHL history.

I'm intentionally limiting it to trades that happened in the salary cap era, but if I missed one you think is significant, feel free to mention it in the comments.
