The NHLs Mar. 2 Trade Deadline is approaching and teams are making decisions on whether to buy, sell and decide which players can make the biggest difference and hold the greatest value. Check out todays trade rumours and speculation from around the NHL beat. And follow TradeCentre on TSN and TSN.ca through Deadline Day for all the updates. Open Mike The Los Angeles Kings offered everyone a free shot at centre Mike Richards on Monday by putting the 29-year-old on waivers. TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun wrote that the Kings had been trying to find a trading partner for Richards - including the Toronto Maple Leafs and Winnipeg Jets - over the past month. A one-time 30-goal scorer, Richards has underperformed in Hollywood, failing to eclipse even the 20-goal plateau in three-plus seasons with the Kings. He has five goals and 10 assists in 47 games with the Kings this year and still has five years remaining on his contract at an annual cap hit of $5.75 million. He is making $7 million this season, but his deal back-dives over the next five seasons, finishing with two seasons at $3 million. TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie added the Calgary Flames to the list of teams that have recently talked to the Kings about acquiring Richards in exchange for a bad contract of their own. Call Me With reports surfacing over the weekend that the Dallas Stars might have interest in some blue line help from the Toronto Maple Leafs, TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger told TSN Radio 1050 Torontos Mike Richards Monday morning that action on the Leafs is picking up. Dreger said trade talk picked up mid- to-late last week for Leafs management and that there is an expectation that it could further intensify in the next seven days. Dreger listed Dallas and the Anaheim Ducks as teams that would have interest in Cody Franson and that the Leafs would likely look for a roster player in his early 20s as the key component in any return. Failing that, Dreger said, the Leafs could be looking for multiple picks, including a potential first-rounder. Franson is a prime target for teams looking for offence from the point since the 27-year-old is slated to become an unrestricted free agent at seasons end. Toronto entered the All-Star break 11th in the Eastern Conference, 10 points out of the final wild card playoff berth. Rent Increase The Winnipeg Jets could look for a short-term solution as the trade deadline nears. Winnipeg entered the break seventh in the West and in excellent standing to earn their first post-season berth since relocating from Atlanta. Should the team want to build up its depth before the deadline a rental might make the most sense, writes the Winnipeg Suns Ken Wiebe. The options that might be most attractive to the Jets - according to Wiebe - are depth forwards that could bolster the teams second and third lines. He posted a top five that included Leafs duo Daniel Winnik and Mike Santorelli and Edmonton Oilers forward Matt Hendricks amongst others. Bean Counting The Boston Bruins could still be looking to bolster their forward ranks. Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe believes the Bs may circle around to Buffalo Sabres winger Chris Stewart as a possible deadline addition. Shinzawa writes that the two sides were in discussions before, but the price tag on the 27-year-old was too high to finalize a deal. Stewart has twice eclipsed the 25-goal plateau, but has registered just six tallies in 45 games this season with cellar-dwelling Sabres. He is in the final year of a two-year deal that carries a $4.15 million average salary and is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent at seasons end. Despite holding down the final wild card playoff berth in the East heading into the All-Star break, the Bruins offence could use a boost. The team is averaging 2.58 goals-per-game this season, good for 11th in the Conference. Cheap Nike Shoes From China . She was a pioneer. She did things on skis that made the birds take notice.

That eruption set a tone for the season: The Avalanche werent going to be pushovers. Not with the combustible Hall of Fame goaltender taking over behind the bench. Roy guided this franchise -- the one he led to two Stanley Cup titles as a player -- back into the playoffs by tying a team record with 52 wins. They play Minnesota in a first-round series that begins Thursday. "Patrick is the ultimate winner. He doesnt accept anything less than winning," backup goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere said. "He did that as a player and hes doing that as a coach. "He does that when he plays golf, he does that when he plays cards, he does everything to win. And that has really translated to our team. He changed the whole mentality in this room, and it shows every time we go out on the ice. We play to win, so its fun to see that." As for that volatile temper, the players insist they rarely see it inside the locker room -- not after a bad period or a tough loss. This is their team, Roy said from the day he was brought on board, and he was there more for support than to scold. He was partnering with them, not ruling them with an iron fist. The breathing room allowed the youthful Avalanche to make some mistakes and learn from them. "They need to have someone who they can come up to and talk," said Roy, whos the fifth coach in NHL history to win 50 or more games in his first season. "Its their system." Roys only previous experience on the bench was serving as coach and general manager of the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. So he leaned on his assistants, as well as former teammate turned executive Joe Sakic. Roy has been a little unorthodox in running the team: From pulling his goalie with two, three, sometimes four minutes remaining if theyre down a goal to assembling them at centre ice after a practice and having them all yell "team" at the same time. "If we want to be different than weve been in past years, then we have to do things differently," captain Gabriel Landeskkog said.dddddddddddd "Its been great to see his point of view on things. You see the team that we are. You see the team that weve become. "At first, you might wonder, Whats going on here? But its certainly working for us." No arguing that. They were 35-0-3 this season when taking a lead into the third period and had the best winning percentage in one-goal games simply because they played loose and with confidence. "Patrick empowers us," Matt Duchene said two weeks ago, before suffering a knee injury that will keep him out for the start of the playoffs. "Sure, he gives us a kick when we need it. But when he knows we need to be treated with a little bit softer (touch) and brought up instead of put down, thats what he does. "Hes very good at sensing the feeling in the room. Hes helped us all achieve what were capable of achieving." Perhaps no one more than Semyon Varlamov, who turned in a career season under the watchful eyes of Roy and goalie coach Francois Allaire, the man responsible for helping turn Roy into one of the best goalies in hockey history. Varlamov won a league-high 41 games this season, breaking the team record held by Roy. "Of course its a big deal to beat Patricks records," Varlamov said. "Hes one of the best goalies in the world." All this from a team that won just 16 games in a lockout-shortened season. "What a season theyve had," Wild forward Jason Pominville said. "Theyve completely turned it around." Really, the only big additions are rookie Nathan MacKinnon and the presence of Roy. "They must have done something right and Patrick must do something right to make that happen," said Pominville, the teams leading scorer. Indeed. The foundation for that transformation was built in Roys very first game in charge when he lost his cool and yelled at Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau, pounding on the glass. That was after a 6-1 win, too. Roy was fined $10,000 and reprimanded by the league. Wild coach Mike Yeo jokingly said he plans to "check the partition" between the benches before the playoff series. "This is a team that we have to have a lot of respect for," Yeo said. "Theyre an in-your-face team." Just like their coach. ' ' '
