Flames will be as aggressive as they can: report

The Calgary Flames plan to be "as aggressive as we can" heading into the NHL Trade Deadline at 3 p.m. ET on March 2, general manager Brad Treliving told Sportsnet 690 Radio on Friday.

"I wouldn’t say I'm close. Things can change. We’re talking. There’s lots of conversations going on," Treliving said, according to Nichols on Hockey. "Are we imminent? We hope; we expect and anticipate to get some business done. But again, I don't know. You need somebody to say yes on the other line too.

"So we're going to be as aggressive as we can. We'll see where that gets us."

Blackhawks 'pretty close' to making trade: report

The Chicago Blackhawks are close to making a trade, but not necessarily to directly replace injured forward Patrick Kane, general manager Stan Bowman told CSN Chicago on Thursday.

"We're getting pretty close [to a trade], but until it's done, it's not done," Bowman said. "I wouldn't want to characterize anything until you get the word that, 'yes, we have a deal,' and we'll make the trade call.

"I've seen enough things that you think are going to happen that don't quite work out. So we're not there yet, but we've had a lot of good discussions today. Hopefully we'll get there."

Roy would be 'surprised' if Avalanche trade O'Reilly

Colorado Avalanche center Ryan O'Reilly is often mentioned in trade rumors with the NHL Trade Deadline on March 2 at 3 p.m. approaching.

Avalanche coach Patrick Roy did his best to quell those rumors Thursday during his weekly interview with 104.3 The Fan in Denver. O'Reilly is signed through the end of next season with a $6 million NHL salary-cap charge, and Roy said he doesn't see him going anywhere.

At the Rink: Senators at Ducks

Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau has been tweaking his lineup to try to generate more offense. It began three games ago by splitting up forwards Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry.

Now, Boudreau has a new weapon to work with in rookie forward Jiri Sekac.

The Ducks acquired Sekac on Tuesday from the Montreal Canadiens for forward Devante Smith-Pelly. Sekac was present at morning skate Wednesday, taking line rushes with Jakob Silfverberg and Ryan Kesler, but his status for the game against the Ottawa Senators is up in the air with Sekac awaiting a visa.

"We know he has skill, he can skate, and he's got a good shot," Boudreau told the Ducks website. "We move people around in our top-nine [forwards] until we find the right spot for them. I assume that'll be the same case here."

Quote of the Day

Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
