To trade or not to trade, that is today's question.

Around the NHL, teams are approaching that critical quarter-season mark of 20 games played, where general managers can accurately get a feel for where their team's weaknesses and strengths lie and what their Christmas shopping lists should be for their respective teams.

As such, I thought I would take a look at each team around the league and discuss whether or not the team should trade away its head honcho on-ice; aka the team captain.
