NHL and NHLPA reach an agreement - lockout FINALLY over

NHL lockout: Owners, players reach tentative agreement on CBA framework

After more than 16 consecutive hours of bargaining on the 113th day of the lockout, the NHL and NHLPA reached a tentative agreement on the framework of a new collective bargaining agreement around 5 a.m. Sunday.

We have reached an agreement on the framework of a new collective bargaining agreement, the details of which need to be put to paper, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said during a news conference, standing next to NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr.

Weve got to dot a lot of Is and cross a lot of Ts, Bettman said. Theres still a lot of work to be done, but the basic framework of the deal has been agreed upon.

The deal still requires ratification from the players and the NHLs Board of Governors before it becomes official, but the league is expected to play a 50- or 48-game season that starts no later than Jan. 19.

I'll never understand the mentality people have for going into a thread about a sport you don't care about specifically to tell everyone that you don't care. There are plenty who still do.

a sport i dont care about? I've lived in a hockey city for 20 years, I spent like 7 years playing it.

it's turned into a soft greedy corrupt league and it's boring now, the last years stanley cup playoffs were ****ing horrid.

Not really

I'm especially curious to see how well fans turn out to games at this point. Though I'm thrilled the bullshit is over, I've certainly feeling less warm and fuzzy about spending money to go and watch games this year. I'm pretty content going to my little CHL games for $10 a pop.

I actually do care about hockey. Just stating that NOBODY else cares.

This has been seriously damaging to the sport.

Ah. In that case, I agree.
