Morning buzz

Happy 65th birthday to the great Bobby Orr. Who do you take in the GOAT debate; Orr or Gretzky?

The Tampa Bay Lightning look like they're trying to make a final push to get back into the playoff picture but the bad news is captain Vincent Lecavalier reportedly has a broken foot and Ryan Malone has a shoulder injury. (NHL.com)

Looking at the Ducks after re-signing Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf and thinking how are they going to ice a full team? No worries, the salary cap shouldn't be an issue, they still have room. The bigger issue could perhaps be how much they actually have to spend -- Anaheim isn't usually a cap team -- but that's looking better, too. (OC Register)

What's going on in Vancouver these days? Is coach Alain Vigneault starting to feel some heat? (Sportsnet)

Remember the story of Red Wings prospect Gustav Nyquist losing the puck from his first career-goal in a storage-unit auction? Good news is his puck has been found. The bad news is he doesn't know when he can get it back because it's evidence in an investigation. Weird story. (MLive.com)

David Steckel was traded from Toronto to Anaheim recently and he welcomed the news. "You know you're going to a superior team right now and it's going to be fun." Sorry, Leafs. (Ducks)

Interesting pair of tweets from Corey Masisak looking at the NHL standings from Feb. 10 on.

Yikes, look at New Jersey and San Jose . That's ... not good.

Things have gone south in Nashville and Barry Trotz is getting frustrated. He delivered a pretty honest assessment of what he has to work with: "I know some guys are playing over their heads, some guys quite clearly can't play at this level, that's plain and simple, but we're going to sort that out and go from there." (The Tennessean)

Another day, another look at what's going on with Alex Ovechkin in Washington. Neil Greenberg takes a look at Ovi's move to the right wing this season and how it's starting to show signs of paying off. (Washington Post)

A five-question Q&A with Minnesota Wild GM Chuck Fletcher, including some talk about how the young players are coming along in Minnesota. (NHL.com)

The Canucks already proved once this year they're creative when it comes to time-wasting with a lead. They did it again in a different way on Tuesday night, killing about 45 seconds in a tight game.

Wednesday's schedule

Tampa Bay at Toronto (7 ET)
Minnesota at Detroit (7:30 ET, NBC Sports Net)
Dallas at Colorado (9:30 ET)
San Jose at Edmonton (9:30 ET)
Chicago at Anaheim (10 ET, NHL Network)
