Well, they settled it

A few days ago, the NHL and NHLPA came to an agreement on terms of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. I was still awake when the news hit my Twitter feed at 2:20 AM California time. I was surprised that I didn’t wake up my family with my shouting. The federal mediator who bright the two sides together worked tirelessly for 15 straight hours just to see the two sides agree on something. He had to break a lot of shoe leather in doing so, as the two sides where separated by an entire city block. I applaud him and his work for bring the two sides together.

A lot of websites are reporting the terms of the agreement, so I wont bog you down again. Suffice it to say that any hockey site other than the NHL.com would be a good starting block. I for one did not give up hope that they would get a season underway, but I was starting to feel that they couldn’t get one in time for the Winter Classic or the All-Star Game, ancient was right, as both had to be cancelled. Cancelling the Winter Classic was a huge blow, as it Gabe many fans the only alternative to college hall games, not to mention that the revenue the NHL generated for themselves was a huge boot to the sport. A saving grace is that next January first, we will see the Detroit Redwongs and Toronto Maple Leafs face off in Detroit next year.

I only hope that both sides keep the CBA for the full ten years, so we don’t have to do this again in eight. Thanks Scott for bring the two sides back together.
