Buy, sell or trade?

USA Today's Kevin Allen's posited a trade deadline primer for each and every one of the NHL's 30 teams, suggesting which teams will "buy," which teams should "sell" and which teams should "trade" to engage in a little bit of both "buying" and "selling" assets. "Taking it from the top"...

Anaheim Ducks (buyer): GM Bob Murray might make a move as a reward for what his organization has accomplished: The Ducks are playing better than expected, and he re-signed Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. He is looking for a center.

Boston Bruins (buyer): GM Peter Chiarelli was happy to move the rights to Tim Thomas earlier this season to clear up space. They would like another scorer and/or a veteran defenseman. He picked up forward Kaspars Daugavins off waivers from the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday.

Buffalo Sabres (seller): GM Darcy Regier says there are no untouchables. Veteran defenseman Robyn Regehr and Jordan Leopold will be unrestricted free agents next summer. Jochen Hecht could also be moved. Teams will inquire about Drew Stafford.
