Do you see that, people? It's the light at the end of the tunnel. August is right around the corner, which means that before we know it, NHL teams will be opening up training camp in anticipation of October's drop of the puck.
However, there is still a bit of unsettled business to be handled before the skates are laced up to start the season. The restricted free agency buzz is still a top news story, especially with arbitration fast approaching. Not to mention, a few marquee guys are still available on the unrestricted free-agent market.
The offseason seems to slow to a crawl at this time of year, but if nothing else, there is always the speculation about the season to come.
