NHL Free Agency 2012: Jaromir Jagr Signs, Where & When Will Next Forwards Sign?

Yesterday, as reported by ESPN's Pierre LeBrun, Jaromir Jagr signed a one-year deal with the Dallas Stars for $4.5 million.

The Stars have now signed the 40-year-old Jagr to go along with the 40-year-old Ray Whitney, who Dallas signed on the first day of free agency to a two-year, $9 million deal.

While the Stars seem intent on acquiring veteran leadership and hoping that is enough to make a difference, there are plenty of teams out there also looking to make a difference in their own sort of way.

Jagr is just the latest in some high-profile forwards changing addresses via free agency.

Jiri Hudler signed a four-year, $16 million contract with the Flames.

Olli Jokinen signed a two-year, $9 million contract with the Jets.

P.A. Parenteau inked a four-year, $16 million contract with the Avalanche.

Still, several high-profile forwards remain unsigned, even though the rumor mills are churning.

Let's look at five of the top free-agent forwards still out there and try to project when, and more importantly where, they might sign.
