Trade Deadline: 12:47 PM

*-> Pierre-Edouard Bellemare appears close to re-signing with the Philadelphia Flyers so cross him off the list.

*-> Still no word on the re-signing of Michael Neuvirth yet.

*-> Pierre LeBrun is reporting that Montreal still isn't done shopping yet. That's the sense I'm getting as well, there's a big move to be had still for Montreal.

*-> Ottawa is determined to resolve this Lazar situation. They'd love to be able to turn Lazar into a high end prospect they really covet to recover for the Jonathan Dahlen deal. It appears they'll make a move by 3pm.

*-> Carolina have told teams that Teuvo Teravainen is available for the right price.

*-> The Tampa Bay Lightning are trying to deal ether Valtteri Filppula or Tyler Johnson. Filppula rejected a deal to the Leafs recently. He determines his own fate so they seam to be leaning towards moving Johnson since they can control the return and destination.

*-> Still no word on Shane Doan and if he'll waive his no trade clause today. Arizona's priority at this point has to maximizing their return for the hottest trade target of the day. Once Vrbata goes there should be a series of deals falling into place.

*-> Los Angeles have a deal in the works, which was the reasoning behind the Dwight King deal. It's rumored to be an Iginla deal but they were also in on Thomas Vanek so maybe more to come.
