Luke Schenn – Stay-at-home defenceman looks a step slower than last season and has fallen into only third-pairing duty all season. Still just 22, Schenn's development seems to have stalled, and he could be moved for help up front. Chance he's dealt: 30 per cent. Jonas Gustavsson – One way or another, The Monster's time in Toronto appears to be over. An unrestricted free agent this summer, he could be moved in a deal for a goaltender or even placed on waivers. Chance he's dealt: 30 per cent.



Mikhail Grabovski – Stuck in a contract impasse centred around both dollars and term, Grabovski may be moved for a draft pick if his asking price remains too high to be re-signed. Chance he's dealt: 25 per cent.



Colby Armstrong – General manager Brian Burke would be wise to get out from under the final year of the beat-up veteran's $3-million (all currency U.S.) contract if possible. Several playoff teams are rumoured to be interested – although having recently been a healthy scratch, he wouldn't fetch much at this point. Chance he's dealt: 15 per cent.

Nazem Kadri – The former seventh overall pick once again has close to a point-a-game in the minors but hasn't impressed at the NHL level and could be packaged in a deal for more immediate help. Just 21. Chance he's dealt: 5 per cent.



Clarke MacArthur – Burke's best free-agent signing in Toronto continues to be the subject of trade rumours, although he's provided decent production given his modest $3.25-million salary. Chance he's dealt: 5 per cent.



Mike Komisarek – A regular healthy scratch these days and with a huge $4.5-million cap hit the next two seasons, Komisarek is only being moved if it's for another terrible contract that Toronto can buyout or bury in the minors. Even then, that's a difficult deal to pull off. Chance he's dealt: 2 per cent.



Jake Gardiner – The rookie defenceman has had his name thrown in almost every rumour out there – and other teams are interested – but Burke will hang onto him at almost all costs. Chance he's dealt: 0 per cent.
