It happens every year.
A team in the NHL has a free agent that it wants to re-sign but is unable to for any variety of reasons. Whether it be another team outbidding it or the player wanting out, the team loses a player it wanted to keep.
This offseason, there have been some pretty obvious situations with teams losing players, specifically, two players that left Nashville and New Jersey.
For others, the players they lost aren't that big a name, but the team will still feel the loss, whenever the season starts.
Who are these players?
