The list of UFA's continues to dwindle down as training camps get closer by the day. The most prominent unrestricted free agents left on the free agent market:

Peter Bondra, RW ... The Fantasy Skinny: His fantasy stock has gone down year after year. It is now as low as it can get, short of him retiring. There aren't a whole lot of situations out there for him that would change that.

Brian Leetch, D ... The Fantasy Skinny: No longer a fantasy pool asset as injuries have taken a toll.

Valeri Bure, RW ... The Fantasy Skinny: After missing all of last season, he has fallen off a lot fantasy owner radars. If he winds up in Vancouver, as is rumored, he will be on a very favorable line.

Mike Leclerc, LW ... The Fantasy Skinny: The talent is there, but the health never seems to be. Leclerc would be a solid depth fantasy player if he could play 75 games.

J.P. Dumont, RW ... The Fantasy Skinny: His stock dropped now that he won't have Daniel Briere as his pivot. Heâll need to go to a team that will stick him in the same situation to regain his status.

Jason Allison, C ... The Fantasy Skinny: Too slow for the new NHL? A one-time fantasy stud, Allison may be a fantasy, if NHL GM's feel that way.

Anson Carter, RW ... The Fantasy Skinny: Hockey pool owners loved Carter with the Sedin twins. They don't much like him in limbo now. It is unlikely he will find the same chemistry with skilled linemates elsewhere.

Radek Dvorak, RW ... The Fantasy Skinny: Fringe fantasy player could ignite career in the right situation with the right team.

Oleg Kvasha, RW ... The Fantasy Skinny: Strong performance in brief stint in Phoenix fails to make up for the weak performance in the rest of his career. He'll need to repeat that act on a new team (and hang onto it) to regain his fantasy value.
