After a 16 plus hour meeting, the NHL and the NHLPA came forward with the news that they have agreed to the framework of an agreement.
The two faces of this lockout, Gary Bettman and Donald Fehr, were looking tired but optimistic as they addressed the awaiting media about 5am.
“Agreed to the framework” means that they have verbally agreed to end this thing, but it still needs to be put on paper.
They wouldn’t have addressed the media together like this if they weren’t serious about it folks.
Wash up your jersey and get it ready!! (Unless you are one of those people who have said ‘for every game that the NHL takes from you, you will not attend a game’. Let’s see how many hold true that that one.)
