You haven't heard any news because there hasn't been any. It's just a holding pattern until a new CBA gets signed. Nieuwendyk has said repeatedly that the team wants to see what the new rules are going to be first rather than just guessing. It's certainly true that other teams have taken different approaches with their RFAs.
