In another move that bucks tradition, the Sharks completely revamped their on- ice leadership structure not by selecting new players to wear the precious singular letters on their uniforms, but by stripping the captaincy from Joe Thornton, removing the alternate tag from Patrick Marleau and leaving the other "A" vacant after Dan Boyle signed as a free agent with the Rangers.
Luongo, who put up solid numbers in a 14-game run with Florida at the end of last season, returns to the fold after spending seven-plus seasons with the Vancouver Canucks. Prior to being shipped off to the Canucks in 2006, Luongo had spent the previous five seasons with the Panthers and none of those campaigns ended with a trip to the playoffs.
Since losing to the Carolina Hurricanes as an upstart eighth seed in the 2006 Stanley Cup Finals, the Oilers have yet to make it back to the postseason, giving this once-proud franchise the longest current playoff drought in the NHL.
With Seguin and Spezza locked in as the club's top two pivots and left wing Jamie Benn coming off a season in which he was named a first-team NHL All Star, it's pretty clear Nill's Stars are not content with taking a back seat to Central Division powerhouses in Chicago and St. Louis.
Five years after winning the franchise's third Stanley Cup title, the Penguins flamed out in the playoffs yet again last season, taking a 3-1 lead over the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference semifinals before losing the next three games and the series.
Of course, Roy is hardly satisfied with merely making the playoffs. He was a big part of four Stanley Cup championship teams as a goalie, lifting the Cup twice with Montreal and two more times in Colorado. Clearly, anything short of returning to the top of the NHL mountain as a coach would be considered failure.
Although the slate has been wiped clean, there's a good chance the battle for the 2015 Stanley Cup title could go through either Chicago or Los Angeles. So maybe we shouldn't give up on the dynasty talk just yet.
Buffalo gained 48 points in as many games during the lockout-shortened season of 2013 and only managed four more points (52) over an 82-game schedule last season. The campaign marked one of the lowest points in Sabres history, as the club finished dead last in the league for the first time and set an NHL post- expansion record for fewest goals in a season with 150.
There's a good chance Boston could claim the top seed in the East, and possibly another Presidents' Trophy, in 2014-15. In fact, the Bruins' main challenge for conference supremacy may not come from another team, but the club's own salary cap constraints.
When Dave Tippett took over the head coaching job from Wayne Gretzky in 2009-10, his club finished the season ranked third in the NHL in team defense with 2.39 goals allowed per game. The defensive approach led to three straight playoff appearances from 2010-12, but Tippett's club was not nearly as stingy while missing the postseason in each of the last two campaigns.
Columbus Blue Jackets forward Boone Jenner is expected to miss the first month of the upcoming 2014-15 NHL season due to a broken hand.
It was those same Kings who upended Anaheim in a second-round series which went the distance and featured several momentum swings: the Ducks were down 0-2 before rallying to win three straight, then dropped the last two, including Game 7 on home ice to the eventual Stanley Cup champions.

Can Craig Berube lay the foundation for a success by getting his players to buy in right from training camp, and shake off the stigma of placing a former enforcer in a position of power as an NHL head coach?
Realignment pushed the Jets from the NHL's Eastern Conference to the West in 2013-14 and the change did not suit the club with Winnipeg finishing last out of seven teams in the Central.
Also gone from Vancouver is general manager Mike Gillis, the man who made the ill-fated decision to fire head coach Alain Vigneault after the 2013 campaign and replace him with Tortorella. All Vigneault did in 2013-14 was take over the reins for Torts with the New York Rangers and lead the Blueshirts to the Stanley Cup Finals.
Toronto's big move came shortly after last season when it named Brendan Shanahan as the team's president and alternate governor. The Hall of Fame winger left behind a job as the NHL's director of player safety to try and help his hometown team get back on the right track.
Even though the postseason run ended shortly after it began with a four-game sweep at the hands of the Montreal Canadiens, there were plenty of positives to draw at the end of 2013-14.
Losing to Chicago is understandable considering the Blackhawks entered the 2014 playoffs as defending Stanley Cup champions, but that's probably of little consolation to Blues fans. After all, St. Louis has only won one playoff series since Ken Hitchcock took over as coach early in the 2011-12 season despite the team's regular-season success during his tenure behind the bench.
For 11 straight seasons from the 1996-97 campaign through 2007-08 the Senators qualified for the playoffs, with the franchise's high point coming in a trip to the 2007 Stanley Cup Finals. After missing the postseason in the spring of 2009, Ottawa qualified three times over the next four seasons culminating with the aforementioned 2013 appearance.
The Flames are coming off a not-so-surprising 77-point season, the lowest for the club since it notched just 75 in 2002-03. And though Calgary would reach the Stanley Cup Finals the following spring a decade ago, the turnaround isn't expected to be as swift this time around.
Although New York lost several pieces from its Eastern Conference championship team in the offseason, the club still enters 2014-15 as one of the favorites to win the East.
The three-time Stanley Cup champion and four-time Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender will no longer man the pipes for the Devils, and as of the start of October is still waiting for a call from someone. He'll always have a prominent place in the franchise's history and will one day have his No. 30 hung from the rafters of the Prudential Center.
However, recent history hasn't been kind to either the Isles or the Coliseum. The building derisively known as "The Mausoleum" is the most maligned arena in major professional sports, and the team it houses is usually nothing to rave about either.
The Hurricanes didn't do much right last season, finishing towards the bottom of the league on both sides of the rink. They were especially bad on the power play, ranking 28th at 14.6 percent.
Trotz's Predators made the playoffs in seven out of eight seasons from 2003-04 to 2011-12 and did so mainly due to the club's defense-first philosophy. Laviolette, meanwhile, preaches an up-tempo, possession style of play. The move does make sense considering Nashville finished 23rd in the league in team defense last season, a clear sign Trotz's system wasn't working the way it once did.
There is no question the 2014-15 Canadiens are a talented bunch. However, the club is still relatively young with a handful of its best players -- P.K. Subban, Max Pacioretty, Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher, to name a few -- entering this season at 25 years old or younger.
The Kings played a total of 26 postseason contests last campaign, overcoming a 3-0 series deficit to beat San Jose in the first round, winning two straight to close out Anaheim in the semifinals and then besting the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 7 of the conference finals in overtime.
