With the NHL entry draft now in the rear-view mirror, the workload for 30 general managers and their front-office staff is set to increase in the next few days.

For example, Vancouver Canucks general manager Mike Gillis will be busy trying to sign Daniel and Henrik Sedin in order to prevent the Swedish twins from testing free agency on Wednesday.

“We're still very optimistic,” Gillis said after the NHL entry draft concluded at the Bell Centre on Saturday afternoon. “They're guys we clearly want on our team. We are working hard to put our best foot forward. They are guys we definitely want back, and we're going to try our hardest.”
