With the 2011 NHL season approaching fast, teams are looking to boost their roster for a chance at making it to the Stanley Cup Finals.  

This article is going to look at five teams that have undergone major changes to their rosters, which will hopefully lead them to success and make for a very interesting season.

The Minnesota Wild have added new players to both their defense and offense and look to make a run for Lord Stanley this season after many disappointing failures to make the playoffs.  

Looking to boost their defense, the San Jose Sharks have made some roster changes that should allow them to make the final push they need to get to the Cup.

The Los Angeles Kings look to boost their second line, giving Anze Kopitar more relief as well as a possible MVP season.

The Philadelphia Flyers have a whole new offense that should put them in a good position to repeat as Atlantic Division champions once again.

Lastly, the Washington Capitals have finally filled all the holes on the team by assembling a very strong group that should be able to make the push that they have been yearning for into the Stanley Cup Finals.
