Free Agency starts NOW: What should the Stars do?

The 2009 NHL Free Agency period has officially started and already we've seen some interesting news start flying around the league about Dany Heatley, Dwayne Roloson, Marian Hossa and a number of other big-name free agents.

None involve the Dallas Stars.

We've already gone over how the Stars' self-imposed low budget will affect how this team approaches free agency. The team is pretty much set with a good group of forwards, but a key defenseman and a backup goaltender could go along way to making the Stars a very formidable team once again. As much as I love our group of young guys on the blue line, I can't help but think we still need a big veteran to settle things down. Mattias Ohlund would be nice. So would Jordan Leopold.

Or just re-sign Sergei Zubov (and pray he's healthy).

Use this thread as a tracker for all the big moves of the day around the league and if any news breaks regarding the Dallas Stars, we'll put it up.
