During the 2013 NHL free-agency period, there are going to be a number of teams interested in players like Corey Perry, Ryan Getzlaf, Joffrey Lupul and Travis Zajac because of their desperate need of scoring.
Some teams need to overhaul their offensive arsenal; others are desperate to add secondary components. Some may be salivating at the chance to add a veteran like Jarome Iginla as the final piece to their Stanley Cup puzzle.
Whatever the case, there are 13 teams that should be desperate to add scoring in July of 2013.
The NHL lockout could result in a shortened 48-game season, so there is a good chance that there will not be many trades when the season starts. Many teams will address their needs via free agency.
