The NHL's Mar. 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell while figuring out which players can make the biggest difference and hold the greatest value.

Check out today's trade-related reports and speculation from around the NHL beat. And follow TSN.ca through Deadline Day for all the updates.

Not Much Talking

Steve Zipay of Newsday reports that the New York Rangers have yet to have concrete contract talks with their captain Ryan Callahan who will become an unrestricted free agent at season's end. The article says many teams would be interested in the 28-year-old gritty and skilled forward if the Rangers don't spend enough to keep him in the Big Apple. A concern could be with Callahan's health as he's racked up a number of various injuries over his career.

No First-Rounders

Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun  reports that Calgary Flames general manager Brian Burke sees no scenario in which he would give up his first round pick which will likely be a top-five lottery selection. "No — it's not in play," said Burke to the Sun. ""We've had no inquiries — people wait to see the draft sequence." Burke said he's looking for trade partners in the market right now, but hasn't received any offers that make sense in the long term. He thinks trade talk will pick up after the Olympic break. Dennis Wideman and David Jones are being shopped around according to the article.
