With the NHL Trade Deadline only weeks away, teams are making decisions on whether to buy or sell and deciding which players can make the biggest difference or hold the greatest value.

Check out today's trade rumours from around the NHL beat. And follow each day until Deadline Day for all the updates:

Bobby's World

As one of the hottest names on the trade market, Anaheim Ducks star Bobby Ryan has responded to the rumours by catching fire on the ice with seven goals and four assists in his last 12 games.

"I'm well aware," Ryan said of the rumors. "It's frustrating because I think my play over the past 10 games has been good enough to where they should cease a little bit and there should be some protection there."

Sizing It Up

The Toronto Maple Leafs have lost three straight and are 4-5-1 in their last ten games, dropping them into ninth in the Eastern Conference.

Steve Buffery of the Toronto Sun speculates on what the Leafs should do if they are planning to make a return to the post-season this year. First and foremost they need to add size up front, something Brian Burke is trying to do.

Offence on the Mind

Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray said his club is in buying mode, looking to add an offensive player that can help keep the Sens in a playoff spot.

Murray's last trade, acquiring Kyle Turris, has paid off with the young forward posting 11 points in 15 games since joining the club.

Running Wild

With a slew of injuries hitting their roster, Minnesota Wild GM Chuck Fletcher is under pressure to make a move to keep his team in the playoff race.

The Wild are missing injured Mikko Koivu, Guillaume Latendresse and Pierre-Marc Bouchard and current sit in ninth in the Western Conference. Several teams are in the hunt for top-six forwards, making Fletcher's task even more difficult.

Stafford could be one of several Sabres on the block, including Derek Roy and Brad Boyes.
