NHL Is Back

NHLThe NHL and the NHLPA announced that they reached a tentative deal today, ending the lockout.  The deal would be for 10 years, with an 8-year opt-out option.  The players' share of NHL revenue--a major part of the negotiations--will drop from 57% to 50%.  Also among the provisions are a new salary cap and 7- or 8-year limit on player contracts.

Assuming the agreement is ratified, play is expected int he next couple of weeks for something around a 50-game season.
