9 a.m.: One of the most exciting days on the NHL calendar is underway. The NHL trade deadline is today, and it’s just six hours away. Between now and 3 p.m. ET, there could be some big moves being made. The action got started early, though, as there was a flurry of activity all day long. The same could happen today, as well, as there are still plenty of players who could be on the move before the deadline. One of those players could be Tampa Bay Lightning captain Martin St. Louis. The 38-year-old is reportedly unhappy in Tampa Bay, and according to reports, the New York Rangers are making a strong push St. Louis. Dialogue between NYR and TB on Marty St. Louis trade is continuing. No guarantee it gets done but still a possibility. #TSN #Tradecentre— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) March 05, 2014 It also sounds as if St. Louis is making the push for that to happen as well. Also hearing St Louis is expected to encourage the trade to NYR today. Not sure if that impacts Yzerman's decision.— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) March 05, 2014 The Rangers have other issues to deal with as well. They’re still reportedly in contract talks with their own captain Ryan Callahan. The two sides are still working on a long-term extension. If they can’t come together on something, Callahan is presumably one of the players that could be on the move as well.Filed under: Mike Cole, NHL, NHL Trade Deadline, Top Stories
