The NHL Lockout is certainly a difficult time to be a general manager of an NHL team. 

Not only are GMs unable to sign players during the lockout, but they're also forbidden to execute trades, which makes it impossible for any team to make moves to improve their rosters until a new collective bargaining agreement is approved by the NHL and the NHLPA.
