The Dallas Stars are expected to be very busy this offseason and throughout the summer.

General manager Jim Nill said he’d like to add a piece or two to his forward group but did not divulge his specific targets.

Now, ESPN is reporting Nill has talked to the San Jose Sharks about center Joe Thornton and to the Ottawa Senators about center Jason Spezza.

"What he found out is that Thornton at this point has no intention to waive his no-movement clause, and the Stars are one of the 10 teams on Spezza’s no-no list as part of his partial no-trade clause," Pierre LeBrun wrote.
