Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Steve MacFarlane,
In the case of the Calgary Flames, they have an impending UFA with plenty of value in Olli Jokinen, but there’s no way they part ways with him — if he’d even agree to it considering his no-movement clause — while sitting within striking distance of the final few spots in the West.
So unless they drop every one of their next five games in regulation before the deadline, chances are they’ll be looking to add some talent to the mix for the final stretch of their playoff push….
Who’s available? Nobody really knows except the GMs quietly shopping their wares or accepting calls.
But here are some pending UFA names to watch as the deadline nears:
F Zach Parise, New Jersey Devils Age: 27; Cap hit: $6 million
It’s hard to believe the Devils will let their captain get away, but if they don’t think they can sign him, they won’t let him walk away for nothing. He’s the big fish on the pending UFA market.
