There are 14 teams sitting at home right now, and the front offices of those teams have already started their summer roster evaluations.
There are two more teams, the Penguins and Canucks, that thought they could wait until late June to start worrying about their summer plans but are now facing 3-0 deficits in their respective first-round series and have had a number of glaring weaknesses exposed by their opponents. They might be the first two teams to join the summer shopping debate.
