Trade Deadline: 8:45AM

*-> The Pittsburgh Penguins still don't appear to be sold on moving Marc-Andre Fleury yet. They'd love to add another defenseman and another forward but the cap space is so tight. Clearing out Fleury would free up a ton of space and they eventually have to move them before the expansion draft but the sense is they'll keep him as insurance for a playoff run unless they get blown away. The Dallas Stars would love to add Fleury but the asking price might be too steep. Some are saying that a Sharp and Niemi swap for Fleury was proposed early on.

*-> The Edmonton Oilers most likely won't be making a major move TSN reports along with the news that the Oilers aren't actively shopping Jordan Eberle.

*-> The Flyers appear to be just willing to play the wait and see game in regards to making the playoffs so their pending free agents are willing to peddle any UFA's on their roster. Some Western teams have kicked tires on P.E Bellemare.
