This summer, we have seen some big names in the NHL find new places to call home.
Zach Parise and Ryan Suter hit big paydays when they were signed by the Minnesota Wild. While Alexander Semin completed a busy offseason for the Carolina Hurricanes when he signed a one-year contract worth $7 million.
The Dallas Stars also added some key players, signing Jaromir Jagr, Ray Whitney and trading for Buffalo Sabres center Derek Roy.
As some teams made moves to make their teams better, other teams were not so lucky.
There have been teams that lost key contributors this summer and have not seemed to take the necessary steps to fill those voids.
Others spent most of the offseason trying to sign a big name, only to come up short after months of hope.
Because of this, these five teams may struggle in the upcoming NHL season unless they can make some late offseason splashes.
