Who has turned out to be the best acquisition this past offseason for each team so far? Whether it's by trade like Tyler Seguin and Bobby Ryan, by draft like Nathan MacKinnon, or by free-agent signing like Mikhail Grabovski and Jaromir Jagr, which new arrivals have had the most immediate positive impact with their new clubs?
To answer that question, we've been going team by team and using a variety of analytics to select the single player whose contributions to his new franchise have been the greatest.
Don't be tripped up by players who were already part of the organization at 2013's season end. Those acquired at last year's trade deadline or prospects who already had contracts are excluded from consideration!
Without further ado, let's see which new whales are making the biggest splash.
