3:24 p.m. EST -- Nashville stays active and acquires Paul Gaustad from the Buffalo Sabres and a fourth-round pick for a first rounder. More on this soon.


3:15 p.m. EST -- Mark Spector of Sportsnet reports that big John Scott is headed to Broadway after the Chicago Blackhawks dealt him to the Rangers for a fifth-round pick.


3:02 p.m. EST -- According to Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet, the Boston Bruins have acquired Brian Rolston from the New York Islanders. Rolston was placed on waivers over the weekend and cleared at noon ET today. Arthur Staple of Newsday adds that the Islanders also are including Mike Mottau and will receive Yannick Riendeau and Marc Cantin.

The last-minute deals keep trickling in. RDS reports that the Minnesota Wild have dealt Greg Zanon to the Boston Bruins.

One Milbury head. The Bruins add some veteran depth that could help them some playoff time, while the Islanders shed a pair of expiring contracts and grab two prospects out of the deal. McKenzie reports the Wild receive Steve Kampfer.

And finally, Rick Nash is staying according to Scott Howson, via Portzline. Wysh chimes in here.


2:47 p.m. EST -- Remember: deals can still be announced after the 3 p.m. EST deadline as they could get held up in the trade call line with the NHL.


2:40 p.m. EST -- Harrison opines on the Sammy Pahlsson deal.


2:35 p.m. EST -- Wysh on the Winnik/Galiardi deal.


2:26 p.m. EST -- Mike Commodore, a fellow ginger, clearly ready for his arrival in Tampa Bay:



2:15 p.m. EST --
Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman trades with his former assistant GM Kevin Cheveldayoff as TSN reports that Johnny Oduya has been traded from the Winnipeg Jets for a second and third round pick in 2013. After picking up Grant Clitsome off waivers earlier, the writing was on the wall for the pending UFA Oduya. With Clitsome having another year on his deal, Oduya quickly became expendable.

Two Milburys here. Giving up two picks for Oduya, who's not of the "missing piece" variety seems to be a big price to pay.


2:00 p.m. EST -- Trades are starting to come in as we hit the final hour until the trade deadline. The Tampa Bay Lightning continue to wheel and deal as they've acquired Brian Lee from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for Matt Gilroy. Defensive-minded guy for a former Hobey Baker winner and offensive mind. One Milbury here.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have dealt Sammy Pahlsson to the Vancouver Canucks for two fourth-round picks and Daniel Winnik and T.J. Galiardi and a seventh round pick are on the move from Colorado to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for Jamie McGinn and prospects Mike Connelly and Michael Sgarbossa, according to Adrian Dater. More on these two in a bit.
