The NHLs Mar. Cameron Brate Jersey . 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell while figuring out which players can make the biggest difference and hold the greatest value. Check out todays trade-related reports and speculation from around the NHL beat. And follow TSN.ca through Deadline Day for all the updates. Teetering Tenures In a live chat on Tuesday afternoon, ESPN.coms Katie Strange said she believes Dustin Byfuglien may not be a member of the Winnipeg Jets much longer. In a response to a question about the future of the 6-foot-5, 265 lbs. defenceman, Strange was short and to the point. "I can see Dustin Byfuglien being dealt, yes. His size, offensive ability, and versatility will likely be attractive to some teams. Right-handed defensemen are hard to find," she wrote. Byfuglien is third among all defenceman with 10 goals and 37 points, but is ranked in the bottom three with a minus-16 rating.Another veteran whose job may be on the line, according to Strange, is New York Rangers forward Brad Richards. Strange said despite the price tag - six years left after this season at $6.67 million per year - the Rangers will decide Richards future based on how many "good years" they believe he has left. Richards will be 40 when his contract expires. Volatile Venture With the post-season now a realistic possibility for the surging Ottawa Senators, general manager Bryan Murray seems ready to make a deal. "We are available to make a deal," he said in a conference call Tuesday. However, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun writes that one of the prized names on the market, Buffalo Sabres forward Matt Moulson, may be a little too pricey for the nations capital. Brennan says one NHL executive believes a deal between the Senators and Sabres "makes sense", but another executive said the Sabres would likely ask for too much in the form of "a minimum of a first (round pick) and a top young player. And Im not even sure they even want a first in this draft." Moulson is making $3.13 million this year and is said to be looking for a long-term deal and double his current wage. The Senators likely wont be willing to give up the pieces or dollars for a deal going forward. Faint Twinkle If the Dallas Stars find themselves sinking further and further out of the playoff picture, a veteran sale might be on the way. Mike Heika of the Dallas News said Tuesday that if the Stars remain on the outside looking in at the beginning of February or after the Olympics, then "players like Vern Fiddler, Ray Whitney and Erik Cole will be made available." The Stars dont have to look far into the past as a reference for such moves. Last year the team sent Brendan Morrow to the Pittsburgh Penguins less than two weeks before the trade deadline and traded Jaromir Jagr to the Boston Bruins and Derek Roy to the Vancouver Canucks the day before. Heika says the Stars may also be interested in moving defencemen Trevor Daley or Alex Goligoski. Ronde Barber Jersey .C. -- Martin Kaymer set a U. Brent Grimes Jersey . -- The Detroit Lions made it crystal clear to Golden Tate that he was their top target in free agency. http://www.shoptheofficialbuccaneers.com/Elite-Gerald-Mccoy-Buccaneers-Jersey/ . TSNs Farhan Lalji reports the Edmonton Eskimos non-import DT has a workout scheduled with an NFL team next week and isnt expected to sign a deal with any team until then.MONTREAL - Tennis Canada is still holding out hope that its top player Eugenie Bouchard will be on court for an historic Fed Cup tie next week against the Czech Republic.Vice-president Eugene Lapierre said Bouchard, ranked seventh in the world, has yet to confirm whether or not she will play against the defending Fed Cup champions Feb. 7-8 in Quebec City.A three-woman team announced Wednesday did not include the Westmount, Que., native, but they have until two hours before the draw on Feb. 6 to finalize their roster and add a fourth player.Bouchards absence would leave little star power in the best-of-five series. The Czechs will be without their top two players, as world No. 4 Petra Kvitova and No. 16 Lucie Safarova are not on their team roster.It will be Canadas first appearance in the elite World Group I. Bouchard did much to get them there by going 4-0 in wins over Serbia and Slovakia in 2014.Its the first time were there and wed like to go to the next round and make it to the semifinals, said Lapierre. But Eugenie knows that, and shes demonstrated in the past that she likes playing in the Fed Cup. So Im sure her decision will be the good one.If Bouchard opts out, Canada will likely go with a young prospect as its fourth player.Bouchard reached the quarter-finals of the Australian Open this week before falling in straight sets to Maria Sharapova.After the defeat at the first Grand Slam of the season, Bouchard was asked if she was looking forward to Fed Cup. She replied that she didnt know if she would be playing or not, adding she planned to visit with family and take some time off to rest.A reporter followed up by asking why she wouldnt play.Thats something I was going to decide after the tournament, Bouchard said. You know, my tournament ended like half an hour ago, so Im still going to talk to my team and make the best decision for me if I can play or not.It is a busy time for Bouchard, who is entered in an indoor tournnament the week after the Fed Cup in Belgium. Demar Dotson Jersey. Lapierre said she may be able to do both because she is the top-ranked player in the Belgian event and may not have to play a match there until later in the week. Plus the Fed Cup is also indoors and would be good practice.He added that Canadian Fed Cup captain Sylvain Bruneau is confident Bouchard will play.The Canadian roster includes Torontos Sharon Fichman (No. 135), 17-year-old prospect Francoise Abanda of Montreal (No. 202) and doubles specialist Gabriela Dabrowski of Ottawa (ranked No. 60 in doubles).The top-ranked Czechs will be represented by Karolina Pliskova (No. 20), Tereza Smitkova (No. 68), Denisa Allertova (No. 107), and Lucie Hradecka (No. 142).The Czechs have been crowned Fed Cup champions three of the last four years.Even without Petra Kvitova and Lucie Safarova, the Czech team is still very dangerous, Bruneau said in a statement. They chose to go with youth. Karolina Pliskova and Tereza Smitkova are two rising stars in womens tennis and they deserve all of our respect.Aleksandra Wozniak of Blainville, Que., was on the Canadian team last year but shes still recovering from shoulder surgery.Lapierre said that even without Bouchard, Canada has a chance against a Czech side lacking Fed Cup experience.Its always better to have your number one player, but that said, of the three named, two have played numerous Fed Cups, he said. For Francoise Abanda, it would be her first Fed Cup and its a tremendous opportunity for her to shine.She hasnt blossomed completely yet, but she has the talent, and playing in front of her crowd in Quebec City would be fantastic.The Czechs have a perfect 5-0 record against Canada in Fed Cup play. Their last meeting came in 2002.The winner will advance to the Fed Cup semifinals and keep a place in World Group I for 2016. The loser will play a World Group I playoff to remain among the top eight countries in the world.
