The NHLs Mar. 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell. Check out todays trade-related reports and speculation from around the NHL beat. And follow TSN.ca through Deadline Day for all the updates. More From Pierre TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun reports on his ESPN.com blog that the Los Angeles Kings have interest in Thomas Vanek, but he might not be their top target. The Kings are also interested in Matt Moulson, Mike Cammalleri and Sam Gagner. LeBrun adds that Predators centre David Legwands name is coming up more frequently, while any moves made by the Vancouver Canucks this season wont be for rental players, but long-term assets. What Do The Canucks Do? Tony Gallagher of The Vancouver Province writes that the Canucks should get in the mix for a winger like Thomas Vanek, but added it would be difficult to acquire and retain such a player. The benefit would be that the Sedins would have a sniper on their line, with Ryan Kesler centring Zack Kassian and Alex Burrows or Chris Higgins, Bo Horvat soon centring the third line with Higgins or Burrows, and Jannik Hansen with Tom Sestito to build out the fourth line. Familiar Asset Sarah McLellan of azcentral sports writes that the Phoenix Coyotes could be a strong fit for veteran forward Ray Whitney at the trade deadline. Whitney is in the final year of a two-year contract with the Dallas Stars after two seasons with the Coyotes. "If were in it, they (the Stars) probably wont do anything," Whitney said. "If we stumble here down the stretch, maybe they will. I dont really know what their thought is yet." In 2011-12, Whitney and Radim Vrbata combined for 59 goals and 139 points.

Suters death was confirmed by a spokesman for USA Hockey. The Madison, Wisc., native won a gold medal representing the United States at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, N.Y., and is the father of NHL star defenceman Ryan Suter, who currently plays for the Minnesota Wild. "Its a tough day for our sport, having lost a great friend and ambassador of the game," USA Hockey said in a statement. "Bob Suter will always be remembered for his role as a member of the 1980 Miracle on Ice Team that captivated our country and whose impact is impossible to measure. "His legacy, however, is far beyond that as he dedicated his life to advancing hockey and helping young people achieve their dreams. Bobs positive impact on our sport will be felt for generations to come. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Suter family at this difficult time." U.S. Olympic teammate Mark Johnson, now womens hockey coach at Wisconsin, said everyone was stunned and shocked to hear the news. "Its a sad day for not only the community of Madison but the hockey community who knew Bob and all of the players who he touched and who he gave an opportunity to play hockey and climb up the ladder," Johnson said in a statement released by the Badgers. "Whether its high school, onto college or onto the professional ranks, he touched a lot of kids and gave them an opportunity." Toronto Maple Leafs star Phil Kessel and sister Amanda expressed their condolences on Twitter. "Today is a very sad day," Phil Kessel wrote. "I lost a great coach friend and mentor. He made me into the player I am todday and I will forever be grateful.ddddddddddddMy thoughts and prayers go out to the Suter family today. I will miss you forever Bob Suter." Amanda wrote that she was "deeply saddened with the news of Bob Suters death. He was such a great guy and friend since I was a little girl. He will be greatly missed." Suter starred at the University of Wisconsin from 1977 to 1979 and has been a fixture in that area beyond his playing career. He opened a sporting goods store in Madison after retiring. "I was extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Bob Suter," Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez said in a statement. "The Suter name is synonymous with Badger hockey. Bob did tremendous work in the Madison and UW community to grow the sport of hockey. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Suter family." A seventh-round pick of the Los Angeles Kings in the 1977 NHL draft and a seventh-rounder of the Birmingham Bulls in the 1977 WHA draft, he went on to play 86 games in the Central Hockey League. "Bob was the ultimate teammate," Wisconsin mens hockey coach and college teammate Mike Eaves said in a statement. "He could skate like the wind and was as hard of a competitor that I ever knew. He has passed much too young." Suters brother Gary played 1,145 NHL games with the Flames, Blackhawks and Sharks and was on Calgarys 1989 Stanley Cup team. The Minnesota Wild, who employed Bob Suter as a scout, also released a statement of condolences for his family.
