The NHLs Mar. 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. Any Takers? TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun reported on RDS Thursday that Montreal Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin has informed the other 29 NHL teams that winger Rene Bourque is available. Bourque has two more years left on his contract at a cap hit of $3.3 million per season. Green Means Go? According to Mike Wise of The Washington Post, it may be time for the Washington Capitals to move defenceman Mike Green. Wise says Green could still bring the Capitals something good in return, maybe even a veteran tough guy or a defensive defenceman for a change. According to Wise, it may take several trades, but seeing as how Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin are understandably untouchable, Green is the one who can bring the most back now. For both parties involved, he adds that Green should be moved for the right player or players as soon as George McPhee can get it done. On An Island Arthur Staple of New York Newsday writes that Thomas Vanek said he understands that the New York Islanders need to know in the next week or two whether hes open to signing with them long term. He also understands that if he cant give an answer or doesnt like a contract offer, the Islanders may trade him by the Mar. 5 deadline. Vanek said even if hes traded, hed consider signing with the Islanders if he hits the open market on July 1. Forward Motion Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports that the Phoinex Coyotes are on the lookout for help. The return of Zbynek Michalek has pretty much crossed a defenceman off general manager Don Maloneys wish list and directed all of his attention to finding offence. "I dont want to trade a forward for another forward," Maloney said. "Youre always looking to upgrade, but were looking to add instead of give a forward to get a forward."

The busy Bronx Bombers have been undergoing a pricey roster overhaul after missing the playoffs for only the second time in 19 years. Ellsbury, fresh off winning the World Series with Boston, agreed to a $153 million deal with New York on Tuesday. The contract includes a $21 million team option for the 2021 season, with a $5 million buyout. If the option is exercised, the deal would be worth $169 million over eight years. The Yankees will hold an introductory news conference for Ellsbury at Yankee Stadium on Friday. Ellsbury, who turned 30 in September, led the majors with 52 stolen bases despite being hobbled late in the season by a broken right foot. The lefty-hitting leadoff man batted .298 with nine homers and 53 RBIs, and the short right-field porch at Yankee Stadium should boost his power numbers. He joins a crowded outfield that will include Carlos Beltran, who agreed to a three-year, $45 million contract, according to two people familiar with the deal, on Friday. Beltrans agreement came hours after All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano decided to leave for Seattle.dddddddddddd. Outfielders Alfonso Soriano, Brett Gardner, Ichiro Suzuki and Vernon Wells are all expected to return. Curtis Granderson, though, left for a deal with the crosstown Mets. Kuroda also agreed Friday to a one-year deal, worth $16 million, to come back and fill one of three holes in the rotation behind CC Sabathia and Ivan Nova. Kuroda, who turns 39 in February, got off to a strong start last season before fading down the stretch. He finished 11-13 with a 3.31 ERA in 32 starts covering 201 1-3 innings. The deal includes bonuses of $250,000 for pitching 190 and 210 innings. New York introduced new catcher Brian McCann at a news conference Thursday. He signed an $85 million, five-year contract. When Beltrans deal is finalized, the Yankees will have committed about $172 million to 13 players for their 2014 luxury-tax payroll. That would leave them with approximately $5 million to spend if they intend to stay under the $189 million threshold, which includes all players on the 40-man roster and $11 million to $12 million for benefits. It appears unlikely New York would remain under the threshold unless Alex Rodriguez is suspended for most of the season, which would relieve the Yankees of much of his $25 million salary. ' ' '
