Trade Deadline: 8:15AM

*-> TSN is reporting that up to 8 teams are kicking tires on Radim Vrbata of the Arizona Coyotes.  He appears to be a lock to go today. The Ottawa Senators are believed to have checked in.

*-> Speaking of the Ottawa Senators they seam keen to use Curtis Lazar to add some offense or to off set some of their picks lost this Deadline week.The asking price is a first but as of yesterday the rumor has only one team offering a 2nd so that's something to watch.

*-> The San Jose Sharks are looking at Ryan Miller. It's believed their on his 5 team list as well as Los Angeles and Anaheim.  The Kings have already added their depth goaltending and the Ducks appeared to be set till John Gibson went down. He could be an extra insurance move for the Ducks and competition for the Sharks to add an experienced goaltender. The sense is Miller would be willing to waive his no trade for a contender.

*-> The Ducks don't appear to be willing to move one of their young d men today for some help, it's a move they'd like to do at the draft in order to not lose one to Las Vegas. Carolina on the other hand is willing to move one of their many d-men as long as they can add a center in return. Is Matt Duchane the right fit?

*-> No word on Shane Doan yet, it appears that he would like to be moved but only to the right location. He's not willing to leave Arizona unless it's the right fit with a contender.  Despite the direction he feels Arizona is taking he still wouldn't mind retiring a Coyote.
