The Dallas Stars brought in a number of veteran players last summer to help the team end its four-year playoff drought.
This strategy has not paid off thus far as the Stars currently find themselves outside the playoff picture in 11th place in the Western Conference.
Dallas is currently on a two-game losing streak and has a tough upcoming schedule with seven of its next nine games against teams currently in a playoff spot.
Still, if the Stars fail to gain ground by the trade deadline, there's a growing sense GM Joe Nieuwendyk will ship out pending unrestricted free agents Jaromir Jagr, Derek Roy and Brenden Morrow...As for Jagr, who leads the Stars in goals (10) and points (18), expect considerable interest from around the league if the 41-year-old is shopped on trade deadline day. Despite his age, he'd be an effective second-line rental player for playoff contenders seeking experienced scoring depth.
For teams that are unable to acquire players such as Calgary Flames captain Jarome Iginla and Anaheim Ducks winger Corey Perry at the trade deadline, pursuing a scorer of Jagr's caliber makes a lot of sense.
Let's look at four teams that would be the best fits for Jagr if he's traded before the April 3 deadline.
