Most Improved Teams This Offseason

Posted by Peaches, 22 August 2012 · 2,210 views

Dallas Stars

When Joe Niewendyk said he was going all out on free agents he wasn't joking. Niewendyk signed veteran offensive forwards Ray Whitney and Jaromir Jagr. He also traded pest Steve Ott and depth d-man for offensive center Derek Roy. The one move that I thought was risky at the time was trading Mike Ribeiro for Cody Eakin but it was probally to clear some capspace.



Minnesota Wild

This is obvious. They signed Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. No more explanation needed.



Carolina Hurricanes

At the draft the Hurricanes aquired 2-way, top 6 center Jordan Staal from the Pittsburgh Penguins for Brandon Sutter (plus picks and prospects) then signed Staal to a 10 year extension. They then signed sniper Alex Semin
to a 1 year, 7 million dollard deal. Their latest move is extending Jeff Skinner for 6 years.

Any issues with these? Think I left any team
off? Use the comment section.
