With the start of a brand new year, many people (including a number of NHL fans) will make resolutions to improve themselves in 2014. Some will stick to these resolutions while most will likely give up or forget about them within a few weeks.
Every NHL team could use improvement in some form in 2014. It could be hiring a new general manager or a coaching change. Perhaps it's re-signing a key player or addressing a roster need with a trade or a free-agent signing. For some, it could be as simple as better health or a lucky break to get them into playoff contention.
