With just over 24 hours until the NHL's Trade Deadline, teams were very busy attempting to clear space under the salary cap.

A scan of the NHL's waiver wire on Tuesday revealed that several high profile players have been placed on waivers.

The Pittsburgh Penguins placed two-time All-Star Miroslav Satan on waivers. The 34-year old has been a disappointment in his first year in Pittsburgh after signing a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Pens this past offseason. The veteran sniper has 17 goals and 19 assists in 64 games this season. The Pens hoped he would be a good fit on the wing with Sidney Crosby, but the two never really clicked as linemates.

Also, the Ducks placed Brendan Morrison on waivers. The 33-year-old has 10 goals and 12 assists in 61 games with the Ducks.

Morrison's situation differs from Satan's, in the sense that the Ducks need the space under the salary cap for players returning from injury following the deadline.

If the Ducks are able to make trades to clear up the necessary space before Wednesday's deadline, they will be able to keep the veteran pivot. If they are unable to make a deal, they will be forced to assign Morrison to the AHL where he would be subjected to re-entry waivers if the Ducks would like to get him back.

Veteran forward Gary Roberts was also placed on waivers after only 30 games with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Several teams are reportedly interested in the 42-year-old, including Calgary where Roberts first played and captured the Stanley Cup in 1989.

The Ottawa Senators once again placed goaltender Martin Gerber on waivers to see if there are any takers for the Swiss netminder. Gerber has been playing with the Binghamton Senators of the AHL for the past few weeks.

The Sens also placed defenceman Brenden Bell on waivers.

Other names of interest include the New York Rangers' Aaron Voros and Erik Reitz, Eric Perrin of the Thrashers, the Blackhawks' Craig Adams and Jon Sim of the Islanders.

In addition the Calgary Flames claimed defenceman Lawrence Nycholat off waivers from the Vancouver Canucks. This will be the well-travelled Nycholat's fourth team in three seasons.

From TheFourthperiod.com:

Hurricanes won't mortgage future

The Carolina Hurricanes remain in limbo as the trade deadline approaches, neither a seller nor a buyer, reports the Raleigh News & Observer.

According to the paper, the Hurricanes won't make any significant changes to their roster because of their position in the standings.

The Hurricanes rank 10th in the Eastern Conference, just one point out of a playoff spot. Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford is not expected to deal away top prospects or high draft picks for a quick fix, thus mortgaging part of the team's future.

At the same time, Rutherford isn't likely to move some of his assets and risk missing the playoffs altogether.

The Hurricanes are believed to be interested in a second-line winger, but aren't likely to give up their first-round draft pick.

First trade of the day:

Columbus gets Antoine Vermette from Ottawa for Pascal LeClaire and a 2nd round pick.

Good for Columbus. Finally, they are a buyer. Here's hoping something lights a fire under Vermette. Good player who has not thrived in Ottawa. If he does (as had Corvo here), I would thing there is something in the dressing room that needs fixing.

Actually, that's a great deal for Ottawa. Vermette's a good player, but Leclaire's a good goaltender as well. Adding the 2nd round pick, I believe, gives the edge to Ottawa.

^ That's important for Buffalo. Connolly was on teams' shopping list if the Sabres were sellers.

Golisano, the Sabres owner made it clear he wanted to make the playoffs this year. He doesn't want to be a seller and harp on the future. I'll be suprised if Buffalo is done today.

Staal for Lalime? ;)

Not a trade but I think it's worthy of being thrown in here

Sabres resign center Tim Connolly to two year 4.5 million

I know he's a good player but isnt that a risk for Buffalo? That guy spends as much time in the IR as Justin Williams does here.

This is a horrible trade for Columbus. LeClaire was awesome last year. Ottawa is looking for second-tier scoring, which is exactly what Vermette should have provided but didn't. Columbus waaay overpaid, and then adding in a draft pick? ouch. Hope I'm wrong. I would love to see Columbus get in and do well in the playoffs.

Not a whole lot going on.

Calgary acquires Leopold for Nycholat, Wilson and a 2nd round draft pick.

Pittsburgh gets Woznieski for Richmond

Buffalo gets Tellqvist for a 4th round

Gerber gets picked up off waivers by Toronto.

And Craig Adams is picked up by Pittsburgh.
