After the Maple Leafs made a splash signing Patrick Marleau on Sunday, the Dallas Stars became the latest team to sign a big name player.

Now we play the waiting game to see if any other teams have some contracts they want to trade or move.

Jaromir Jagr and Ilya Kovalchuk are two players still available, and we still don’t know what will happen with Matt Duchene. Perhaps Joe Sakic can end the paralysis around the league for big trades and do something today.
