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.

Stars' Nill patient heading into trade deadline: report

Dallas Stars general manager Jim Nill isn't in a hurry to do much as the clock ticks toward the NHL Trade Deadline, which is 3 p.m. ET on March 2.

The Stars enter the week five points behind the Calgary Flames for the second Western Conference wild-card spot into the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"If it looks like we're out of it in two weeks, we're probably looking to move [unrestricted free agents]," Nill told

But if the Stars are still in contention? "Probably nothing [ahead of the deadline]," he said.

Oilers defenseman Petry drawing interest: report

Edmonton Oilers defenseman Jeff Petry is drawing interest as the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline approaches, general manager Craig MacTavish said Friday.

MacTavish, speaking on 630 CHED Radio, said Petry's recent play has increased his value. The 27-year-old can be an unrestricted free agent after this season.

Jeff Petry
Defense - EDM
GOALS: 4 | ASST: 7 | PTS: 11
SOG: 95 | +/-: -23
"The last 20 games he’s really settled into what I think is his best hockey as an Oiler," MacTavish said according to "He's aggressive. He's assertive making decisions. He's decisive on the ice. He's jumping up on the play at a level he never … he did from time-to-time, but he never really felt comfortable doing it because he's a conservative guy by nature. But he's playing the game. He's playing the game to win and everybody around the League is seeing that. He'd be a valuable piece for anybody to add.

"And pending his UFA status, there's motivation on our part to move him or get him signed. So it'll be one of those things."

Calgary Flames coach Bob Hartley joined NHL Live to discuss the surprising success the Flames have enjoyed this season.

The Flames are 29-20-3 and began Thursday in second place in the Pacific Division. To Hartley, the hard work, effort and results start in the dressing room.

"It starts with our great captain Mark Giordano and all our great leaders to all our young players," Hartley said. "I rarely saw in my coaching career a group of individuals so committed to playing the right way, working out the right way, practicing the right way, and obviously having fun winning games. This is a great group of guys and it's lots of fun."

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
