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.

TSN Insider Trading

While trade talks continue on many fronts, TSN's Insider Trading segment on Monday listed the Top 6 forwards that could be in play on or before the Feb. 27 deadline.

At the top of the list was Columbus Blue Jackets centre Jeff Carter. There were two Canadian-based players on the list: Toronto Maple Leaf Mikhail Grabovski and Edmonton Oiler Ales Hemsky. Derek Roy of the Sabres, James van Riemsdyk of the Flyers and Coyotes veteran Ray Whitney rounded out the list.

Capital Deals?

The Ottawa Sun says that with their recent success, the Senators might become buyers at the deadline instead of sellers. But team owner Eugene Melnyk suggested that despite the acquisition of Kyle Turris, fans shouldn't expect a flurry of activity. "(Dealing) would come with one caveat. Let's not lose focus of what our job is: That's to rebuild," Melnyk told the newspaper.

Brand New Jackets? listed five Columbus Blue Jackets who could be used in trades should Columbus decide to enter the market. They include Jeff Carter, Vaclav Prospal, Antoine Vermette, Samuel Pahlsson and Derick Brassard. With just 13 wins in 48 games, the Jackets are dead last overall in the league standings.


Feeling Ducky

Anaheim Ducks GM Bob Murray told the L.A. Times that he will not be moving Teemu Selanne prior to the deadline. Selanne and Saku Koivu both have no-trade clauses, in any case. But is there anyone else he might move? "The guys are going to show me who wants to stay here and who doesn't," said Murray. "I'll keep watching. There's no time frame on anything. It's a long time between now and the deadline. We'll see where this goes."
