Every NHL team has something to prove in 2013-14, but some teams will feel more heat than others this season.
For example, the Calgary Flames have very little pressure on them. They went into rebuilding mode at the end of the 2013 season, and it's going to take a while for them to become legitimate contenders. The Flames may have gotten off to a hot start, but there's no pressure on them to advance to the playoffs this year.
On the other hand, the Philadelphia Flyers have much to prove after failing to make the playoffs last year and making a slew of roster moves. They are under pressure to become a significant player in the Eastern Conference once again.
Here's our look at the teams with the most to prove this season.
