Marian Gaborik

Age: 26
Contract Status: UFA on July 1
The Latest: Gaborik has resumed skating on his own, a step forward in his recovery from left hip surgery. The two-time All-Star right wing will go through a major physical test on March 1 to assess his progress, with the possibility of returning to the team later in the month.

Tomas Kaberle

Team: Toronto Maple Leafs
Position: Defence
Age: 30
Contract Status: Signed for two more years at $4.25M per season
The Latest: When it comes to Kaberle, who would waive his no-trade contract to go to certain teams, GM Brian Burke believes dealing him will be difficult. "It has to be a deal that blows my doors off and that hasn't happened," he said. - The London Free Press

Chris Pronger

Team: Anaheim Ducks
Position: Defence
Age: 34
Contract Status: Signed for one more year at $6.25 million
The Latest: The Ducks won't play at home again until March 6, two days after the NHL trade deadline. It's entirely possible that Chris Pronger will not be with them when they return. If GM Bob Murray can get a useful young player who can play now and a first-round pick for Pronger he should jump at that kind of deal and accelerate a much-needed renovation of what has become an old and slow-footed team. - LA Times

Nik Antropov

Team: Toronto Maple Leafs
Position: Right Wing
Age: 28
Contract Status: UFA on July 1

Scottie Upshall

Michael Nylander

Position: Centre
Age: 36
Contract Status: Signed for two more years with a $4.875M cap hit
