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.

In a New York Minute

TSN's Hockey Insiders were at work on Tuesday on Insider Trading, discussing the possibility of the New York Rangers dealing pending unrestricted free agents Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi. "It's my understanding that if the Rangers do not sign Callahan and/or Girardi by the trade deadline, they are determined to trade one or both of them, whichever guy is not signed," said TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie.

TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger added, "I'm told that Rangers general manager Glen Sather has reached out to a number of general managers and he is gauging trade interest on Callahan, less so on Girardi."

Eye on Miller

McKenzie also discussed the ongoing interest in Sabres goalie Ryan Miller. "The Minnesota Wild haven't made an offer, but they're waiting to see what happens with Josh Harding's health situation," explained McKenzie. "The St. Louis Blues might have some lukewarm interest. Right now, as far as Ryan Miller goes, I wouldn't say it's frontburner, but they're trying to trade him."

Defensive Shuffle?

The Ottawa Senators announced on Tuesday that Cody Ceci will remain with the club for the rest of the season. NBCSports.com speculates that several other of Ottawa's defencemen could now become trade bait in exchange for a scoring winger to play alongside Jason Spezza. The report notes that Patrick Wiercioch, Eric Gryba, Joe Corvo, and Marc Methot have all been healthy scratches at different points this season.

Bringing in Boyes?

Fluto Shinzawa of The Boston Globe discussed the possibility of former Bruin Brad Boyes being moved by the Florida Panthers. Shinzawa says that with the Panthers being eight points out of a playoff spot and Boyes being a pending unrestricted free agent, the veteran will draw attention on the trade market.
