The Carolina Hurricanes have one goal for the 2014 offseason: to make the changes that will end the team's five-year playoff drought in the 2014-15 NHL season.

It's a goal that's deceptively simple on its surface and overwhelmingly challenging at its roots.

The 'Canes will need to maximize use of seven draft picks, negotiate with 26 pending free agents within the organization, lure out-of-town free agents in to fill holes and make trade decisions on several underperforming stars in a span of two months, all while transitioning general managers and perhaps coaches as well.

The on-ice action in Raleigh may be finished, but the (arguably more important) off-ice business is just now taking center stage.

A complete preview of all the items on the Hurricanes' summer agenda and the potential storylines and situations that will surround them lies on the coming slides.
