Sometimes, with all the transactions that occur during NHL free agency, it’s difficult to keep track of every roster move for all 30 teams in the league.  While some teams make a splash by signing big-name talent to headlining lucrative contracts, other teams like to go unnoticed during free agency.  Many teams have undergone quiet roster adjustments this offseason, becoming better squads while still flying under the radar.

The Minnesota Wild have garnered a lot of media attention by grabbing coveted free agents Zach Parise and Ryan Suter.  Because of these acquisitions, the Wild are expected to make the leap into the NHL’s elite.  The Dallas Stars are another team that has made a lot of noise this summer, signing 12 players since July 1 in an attempt to regain power in the Pacific Division.
