The 2013 NHL Trade Deadline is approaching on April 3, but some shots have already been fired. The Pittsburgh Penguins strengthened their already dominant roster by acquiring Brenden Morrow of the Dallas Stars, Douglas Murray of the San Jose Sharks and most recently Jarome Iginla of the Calgary Flames. While that bolsters the Penguins run for a Stanley Cup (they are now the 9-2 favorites), other contenders will be looking to answer as well. Here’s a look at the biggest names expected to be available come deadline day. Considering the Stars moved Morrow, it’s a good guess to assume they aren’t done yet. They are 10th in the standings in the West and aren’t expected to have a very long playoff run — if they get there at all. Jaromir Jagr is the team’s leading scoring and is an excellent rental option. The Stars are apparently trying to sign him beyond this season but if they fail to do so, teams like the Bruins should be interested in his services. Derek Roy is in a similar boat as hi...

More Bruins trade rumors: Jagr and St. Louis options

We are a team in transition, we just made a coaching change, Marty is one of the leaders of the team, he is not going anywhere."...

Lightning General Manager Steve Yzerman Says ‘Marty St. Louis Is Not Going to Be Traded’

The Tampa Bay Lightning may be in the middle of an awful season, which has led them to shake some things up, but they are not going to shake up one of the best things they’ve got going.

Looking Back: The 1993 Pittsburgh Penguins

Those who are old enough to have watched the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1993 likely won't ever forget them. This team was one of the most impressive collections of players in Pittsburgh Penguins history. It was perhaps the most impressive in team history, even better than the teams that won back-to-back Stanley Cups in 1991 and 1992. The team was, of course, lead by captain Mario...
