From the perspective of a Hawks fan,
Keith - COL = 2: Trading a franchise icon within the division would be a tough pill to swallow and even then, I don't totally see him fitting in Colorado or getting a great return for him. Florida is where I see him going to reunite with Coach Q.
Gus - VGK = 5: Vegas could use another defenseman and Gus has a lot of upside. Might be a stretch here, but offensive defensemen like Burns and Karlsson have thrived under Pete DeBoer. Perhaps he could get a boost down the stretch out there. He could also probably fetch a solid return, especially with what Greene went for yesterday.
Lehner - CAR = 5: Personally, I don't think Lehner gets moved, I think that even if we do "sell off" they'll keep him in hopes that they can sneak in and take a run at re-signing him. That said, Carolina has a ton of prospects I'd be interested in, as well as 4 picks in the first two rounds this season (once the conditions on the Fox trade are met).
Saad - Boston = 4: Saad would be great for the Bruins. I don't know what the Hawks would get back but I know they'd either have to retain or take on David Backes. Urho Vaakanainen is the guy I'm interested in, or their first round pick of course, although it would probably be 27th overall at the highest.
