The clock is ticking. Here's Part III of the contenders for the top pending UFAs.

Don't forget to check out Part I and Part II if you haven't already.

Eric Staal - F - New York Rangers
90/10 odds he hits free agency. Staal isn't the player he used to be, but he can still probably fill a role in the top six of a decent team. The Islanders, Canucks, Canadiens, Wild and Devils have been rumoured here.

Andrew Ladd - F - Chicago Blackhawks
90/10. Although Ladd would've prefered to stay with the Blackhawks, cap constraints will force him to look elsewhere. The Canadiens, Ducks, Blues and Kings have be linked to Ladd in speculation.

Alex Radulov - F - UFA 
Radulov is already a free agent, but given we're only a few days away from the market opening, his landing spot is very much linked to what happens elsewhere the NHL. The Red Wings, Panthers and Avalanche still have some interest. A few rumours have pointed to the Caps and Oilers as darkhorses.

Kyle Okposo - F - New York Islanders
99/1. It's been surprisingly quiet on the Okposo rumour front, but the Canadiens and Wild are rumoured to be preparing offers. Surely many more teams will surface in rumours in the coming days.
