  • 7th-round pick (2015, conditional)

Joe Sakic says talks ongoing but no trade imminent

Paul Stastny patiently answered the same types of questions he has been hearing for days as the Wednesday 1 p.m. trading deadline approaches.

First, Stastny — whose $33 million, five-year contract is up after this season — emphasized he hadn’t spoken with his agent, Matt Keator, in the previous 24 hours and didn’t know anything new about where negotiations stood with the Avalanche.

Rumors keep Flyers on edge as deadline looms

“I prefer to play and I prefer to play and stay here,” Meszaros said. “[Wednesday] is the trade deadline and I’m not looking for anything. I want to be here right now, do my job and play. What will happen, will happen. Everybody wants to play all the time. It was tough this year for me, I know that. I still like it here. I really enjoy being here with the guys. It’s going to be interesting [Wednesday].”

Meszaros said he’s not worried about what might happen. He doesn’t think about it.

Red Wings’ search for a top-four defenseman will continue up until today’s 3 p.m. trade deadline

“I don’t think we’re doing anything up front or in goal,” Holland said. “You’re always trying to do something on the back end. Not sure if we will or not.”

Vancouver, which pulled off the biggest deal on Tuesday by shipping goaltender Roberto Luongo back to Florida for goalie Jacob Markstrom and forward Shawn Matthias, is looking to move defenseman Alexander Edler, who is at or near the top of the Red Wings’ wish list.

Moulson, Halak appear most likely to be traded

Ryan Miller and Steve Ott are already gone and the Buffalo Sabres’ fire sale concludes today when the NHL trade deadline hits at 3 p.m.

The Sabres took Tuesday off and will practice today in the Tampa Bay Times Forum in preparation for Thursday night’s game against the Lightning. After practice, several players will be nervously awaiting their fate.

Gaborik could be bait for help on defense

Sources tell The Dispatch, general manager Jarmo Kekalainen is trying to trade Gaborik by today’s 3 p.m. deadline for defensive help after two key injuries.

Gaborik has a limited no-trade clause, but he recently provided the Blue Jackets a list of teams to which he would approve a trade. A source said one of those teams is the Los Angeles Kings, who are in the market for a high-end forward and have had talks with the Blue Jackets regarding Gaborik.

Capitals trade disgruntled Erat to Coyotes for Klesla, Brown

Kesler to Hawks would be a dream deal

It’s understandable why any team within a sniff of a Stanley Cup title would be after Ryan Kesler. Though the Vancouver Canucks centre isn’t quite what he once was, he remains a two-way menace who embodies the type of veteran, rugged player you can envision putting a team over the top.

Luongo dealt back to Panthers

The Vancouver Canucks have traded goaltender Roberto Luongo to the Florida Panthers.

A source confirmed to The Canadian Press that Luongo was headed back to his former team.

Ducks, L.A. Kings, could be in mood to deal at trade deadline

Here’s a closer look at the Kings and Ducks going into the deadline:

Kings: Additional scoring to aid their 28th-ranked offense, which averages 2.32 goals per game.

Ducks: A big center or a veteran defenseman to make them even more difficult to play against.

Flyers pursuing Canucks center Ryan Kesler?

Two league sources told the Daily News that the Flyers have tabled a “substantial offer” to try and pry Kesler from the Canucks. They have also asked about acquiring Vancouver defenseman Alexander Edler, who is reportedly on the market, as part of a larger trade – though that combined price is steep.

Maple Leafs in on Kesler?

Darren Dreger: You can add the Toronto Maple Leafs to the list of many teams who have expressed interest and have talked to Vancouver Canucks’ mangement about Ryan Kesler, but as Bob identifies, the asking price is very, very lofty.

No big trades expected from Leafs

The belief around the Maple Leafs is that no trade of the blockbuster variety will be made prior to the 3 p.m. ET deadline on Wednesday, and that feeling is shared among the players.
