Last week, I listed teams that I thought were going to miss the playoffs. This week, I am going to focus on teams that might need to add a piece or two if they are going to make a playoff run.

Will it be a sniper, a playmaker or a defensive presence? Will a goaltender or a new coach make the difference for your team? Do they have the pieces and need some consistency or are multiple additions necessary?

Take a look as I create a wish list for teams who need a little more to seek Lord Stanley's Cup.
