Jaromir Jagr and Derek Roy are still pending unrestricted free agents after contract talks with the Dallas Stars failed to result in extensions.

Jagr’s agent, Petr Svoboda, tells L.A. Lariviere of TVA Sports that “anything’s possible right now.” However, with nothing signed yet, Lariviere believes the 41-year-old forward will be traded.

Meanwhile, Renaud Lavoie of RDS reports there will be no more extension talks between Roy and the Stars, and that the Vancouver Canucks have interest in the 29-year-old center.

Dallas hosts Anaheim tonight and doesn’t play again until after the deadline. The Stars are 10th in the Western Conference, two points back of eighth-place Columbus, but with two games in hand on the Blue Jackets.

    Gotta be painful for Stars fans (not that there are many). What, three straight years of BARELY missing the playoffs? Even worse than the Flames of the past couple years.

    I do feel like that team should be better on paper than it is, though. Let’s see if Gulutzan’s comments will light a fire.

      Dallas just got healthy not long ago, I say leave them time to gel but if you want to move Roy for something half decent, then I would do that but Jagr stays put.
