The Stars seem ready to close the book on the Turco era, but the likelihood of dealing the impending UFA will be impacted directly by their success (or lack, thereof) heading into the deadline. But even if they make the 34-year-old available, the list of possible trading partners is shorter than a banker's patience with owner Tom Hicks. It doesn't take a long memory to recall Turco's phenomenal playoff performance in 2007 and 2008, but he's been erratic since then. He's also not the sort of guy you bring in to wear a ball cap on the bench and lead the cheers. Unless an injury sidelines a contender's No. 1, Turco might be a tough sell.
