NHL Trade Speculation: 12 Players Who Might Benefit from a Change of Scenery

This summer, we have seen many high-profile NHL players move teams. Ilya Bryzgalov and Brad Richards moved because their teams couldn't afford them and they joined teams where they feel they have the best chance at winning another Stanley Cup.

Others, like Tomas Vokoun, moved teams solely based on the opportunity to win a Cup, rather than garnering the most money. 

Some players, like Mike Richards, did not choose to move teams, but will probably benefit in some ways; in Richards' case, he won't have the pressures of the Philadelphia media hounding him on a daily basis. 

There are many big-time players that are currently playing on teams who aren't exactly Cup contenders. These players deserve their chance at the Stanley Cup, but may need to change teams because of it.

Other players may reap the benefits of a change of scenery in other ways; perhaps the new atmosphere will help improve their consistency.

Here are 12 players that could benefit from a change of scenery.
