According to John Shannon of Sportsnet, the name popping up most frequently as being available is veteran defenseman Johnny Oduya.

"I keep hearing Johnny Oduya's name," Shannon said on TSN 1260 in Edmonton (via the Edmonton Journal). "I keep hearing they're going to find a way to move Johnny Oduya and get rid of the dollars he makes, and do it with minimum dollars on that five, six, seven defenseman position."

Oduya seems like the kind of asset that would be easy to move. He's a top-four defenseman on one of the league's top teams, making $3.375 million next season and is on a contract that expires next season.
