After Kane trade, Jets GM open to making more moves

Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff made the first big splash leading up to the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline when he sent forward Evander Kane to the Buffalo Sabres for defenseman Tyler Myers, forward Drew Stafford, two prospects and a draft pick.

Appearing on NHL Live on Thursday, Cheveldayoff said he'd potentially be open to more moves before the 3 p.m. deadline on March 2.

"We still think that if there's a chance to grab a forward we would certainly look at that, but we'll see," Cheveldayoff said. "It's one of those things where you don't know what opportunities present themselves. The trade deadline is getting closer. Everything always starts heating up at that point in time so we'll keep our options open."

Flames' Treliving won't make reactionary trade: report

Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving said he won't force a trade after other Western Conference contenders made deals this week.

"You're cognizant of the teams around you, but you don't do anything just because somebody else did," Treliving told the Calgary Sun on Wednesday. "I think you have to be very careful of saying, 'Well, Team X did this, so we've have to go do something just to do something.'"

Calgary entered play Thursday in the second wild-card position into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Western Conference.

Buyers and sellers outside the playoff bubble

With the NHL Trade Deadline on March 2 at 3 p.m. ET quickly approaching, Steve Mears and E.J. Hradek of NHL Live evaluated teams on the outside of the Stanley Cup Playoff picture and whether each will be buyers or sellers.

"I think the Toronto Maple Leafs, for example, are going to be really busy," Hradek said. "It seems like they would like to move a lot of different pieces out. Everybody will be competing for those defensemen because you never -- you never -- have enough defensemen when you go into the playoffs.

"It should be very, very interesting the next couple of a weeks. I do expect there to be a fair amount of movement because I think we have some defined sellers already."

Devils' Jagr not focused on possible trade: report

New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr has a simple philosophy about the NHL Trade Deadline, which is 3 p.m. ET on March 2.

Whatever will be, will be. Jagr's focus will remain squarely on playing hockey.

"I don't pay attention to the deadline. I'm a professional. I just work even harder than I did before," Jagr said Monday, according to NJ Advance Media. "If I stay here, I stay here. If I don't, I still have to be ready. If somebody trades for me they'll expect me to be good. And if I stay here I have to be good. So I have to work harder than ever to make sure I'm good."

Jagr, who turns 43 on Feb. 15, enters the Devils game Monday against the Edmonton Oilers with a four-game point streak; he has two goals and two assists in that span. He has 11 goals and 29 points in 49 games, and earlier this season became the oldest player in NHL history to record a hat trick. His next goal will be the 717th of his career and tie him with Phil Esposito for fifth all-time.
