With the NHL playoffs hitting their stride, the majority of the league is preparing for the draft next month and the free agency to follow. While the last of the playoff beards are being trimmed away, general managers around the league will be trimming their rosters.
A top heavy free agent market and draft means that teams will be going strong to fill their rosters quickly and expensively. Some ridiculous contracts are coming to an end this year, while others are sure to be signed this summer.
With parity at an all time high in the NHL, the playing field has never been more level. A salary cap that has most teams at a competitive level will make this year's offseason interesting. While only one team gets to lift the Stanley Cup in June, 29 others will be looking to fix what went wrong.
Here are the players from each team who will look much better in their employer's rear-view mirror.
