The Stars have seven pending UFAs and only one RFA in Ty Dellandrea.

What’s going on with Jason Spezza?
Sportsnet: Elliotte Friedman and Jeff Marek on the 32 Thoughts: The Podcast – Apsveicam on Jason Spezza.
** NHLRumors.com transcription
Marek: “I want to get to the Maple Leafs here in a couple of moments but one person I do wonder about, and I think we all do as well if Kyle Dubas goes, does this person follow and that’s Jason Spezza.
I also do wonder about Brandon Pridham and I wonder about Wes Clarke and we’ll get to the Leafs in a second here, but is it a foregone conclusion that where goes Dubas sp goes Jason Spezza?
Friedman: “The one thing about Spezza is, I don’t know if he’s going to move. Like his family is pretty ensconced. That’s a good word. Ensconced in the Toronto area.
So I think Spezza could in terms of, he goes with him from an organizational point of view but I don’t know if anyone’s certain that he’s actually going to physically pick up and move.
One other thing about Spezza is Jeff, the timing of his resignation in Toronto has people wondering if initially, he was the plan, the organizational plan to take over as interim general manager after Dubas left.
I don’t know if we’ll ever get confirmation on that, but certainly, that’s one of the theories.
