Now that the NHL lockout is over, teams will be able to sign free agents and make trades once the new collective-bargaining agreement (CBA) is ratified by the owners and the players' union.

There are lots of unsigned players on the free-agent market, both unrestricted and restricted, and they will be among the first players to work out contracts under the new rules enforced by the latest CBA.

The trade market will also heat up, as teams prepare for a lockout-shortened season in which the playoffs are a realistic possibility for nearly every team.

Now that general managers have the option to buy out two players after this year, we could see even more trades than usual from now until the start of the 2013-14 season.
