With the Feb. 27 NHL Trade Deadline looming, 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 and speculation from around the NHL beat. And follow each day until Deadline Day for all the updates.

Don't Break the Bank

While the Senators are one of several teams believed to have interest in Carolina's Tuomo Ruutu they may not be willing to meet the Hurricanes' asking price.

Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports that Senators GM Bryan Murray is not willing to overpay to bring in help at the deadline. “Right now, some teams are looking for a top young prospect and a first-round pick in exchange for a (UFA). I'm not willing to do that,” said Murray Friday.

Shot Down

Teemu Selanne's name may be swirling in trade rumours but he has made it clear that he has no plans on leaving Anaheim, at least not yet. The 41-year-old brushed off rumours that had him being traded to the Detroit Red Wings on Friday.

Selanne has a no-movement clause in his contract and would need to waive it in order for a trade to be done.

Knuble In Play?

CSN Washington's Chuck Gormley speculates whether veteran winger Mike Knuble being a healthy scratch recently could mean the Capitals may trade him before the deadline.

Gormley says that a while a trade doesn't appear too likely, there may be some teams out west that may show interest.

Deep Enough

There have been rumours floating around that the St. Louis Blues could be shopping for defensive depth ahead of the deadline.

However, Jeff Gordon of says the Blues have plenty of depth at defenceman and do not need to make any moves.
