It's why Boston's Peter Chiarelli would still be looking for a nugget even if he'd acquired Brenden Morrow and/or Jarome Iginla.

But the bottom line is, as the deadline approaches, there are teams for whom the urgency meter is rising, rising, rising. That's life.

Here's a look at five teams for whom the deadline looms large.
