Once the season does get under way, each NHL team aspires to improve in the standings, make the playoffs and even win a Stanley Cup.
While those may be the dreams of each of the 30 clubs, they also have nightmares, a situation that they would least like to avoid at all costs.
In the spirit of Halloween, here is a look at each NHL team's nightmare for the coming season (besides the cancellation of the season, of course). Whether it's a particular player being injured or lost or some other problem, here are disasters each club hopes to avoid.
Feel free to add your opinion if you feel I got it wrong, but please say why you feel your chosen situation is worse for the team of your choice.
And let's hope these things don't happen to each team once the game finally gets started again.
