It's Done

Thank god almighty, it's done.

The NHL and NHLPA have a "deal in principle" on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The players will more than likely spend the next week ratifying the deal, and then the Board of Governors will vote on it next week.

The Draft Lottery will be the 21st, then the draft will be the 30th.

And sometime in early August, the utter chaos that will be the free agent signing period will occur.

Camps will open about September 6, and the season will likely open October 5th.

Game on!
