Every Friday the Eye On Hockey staff will do a top-5 ranking on some NHL-related subject. This Friday we look at five teams that missed the playoffs in 2014-15 and have the best chance to make it back in 2015-16.
The Pittsburgh Penguins still need a winger. The Toronto Maple Leafs are still trying to trade Phil Kessel. And the San Jose Sharks still need a goalie. Those are the three biggest unanswered questions in the NHL as we get close to the July 1 free agent signing period.
Eye On Hockey gets you ready for the NHL trade deadline with a division-by-division primer. Who is buying, who is selling, and who is staying the same. Today we look at the Eastern Conference's Metropolitan Division.
