08:36 AM ET 09.02 | While all eyes are on talks between commissioner Gary Bettman and union executive director Donald Fehr, league business has come to a standstill as the 30 GMs sit nervously waiting to find out the parameters of a new CBA. "It's eerily quiet," said a league executive last week. With training camps scheduled to open Sept. 21, there are a lot of teams with plenty of work to do, but with no CBA many GMs are finding trying to sign players or make trades virtually impossible because nobody is sure what is going to happen. There is no question the rules are going to change once Fehr and Bettman find common ground. But, since the free agency period ended and cases were settled before they went to arbitration, there has been little business done.

Yeah, but, even out of focus, Luongo's five hole looks as big a ever.

He's been "relaxing" in his celestial herbs garden for a couple of days now.
