Sounds like the NHL and NHLPA finally agreed on a deal.

Now who's ready for some hockey??

So the entire regular season is going to be, what, best-of-seven?

So the start of the season is either Jan 19th if it is going to be a 48 game season or Jan 15th if it is going to be a 50 game season.

This will make for some really interesting fantasy hockey.

There is an answer in a question, and there is hope within despair
And there is beauty in a failure, and there are depths beyond compare
There is a role of a lifetime, and there's a song yet to be sung
And there's a dumpster in the driveway of all the plans that came undone

This could end up being one of the best NHL seasons ever. Since each game could be that much more important maybe the intensity will be a lot higher than in many regular season games. As far as I am concerned the sooner we get to the playoffs in any NHL season the better.

Or it could be sloppy, poorly played on defense, and will be a run and shoot affair. After the last lockout, it wasn't pretty defensively as defensemen were out of shape and out of rhythm so they didn't hit their stride until the playoffs.

Yeah, so it will probably just suck like every other regular season. At least it won't seem so endlessly long.

And there will be some offensive sputtering on those back to back to back nights that they'll have as they cram in too many games in a week. But I will say, it'll be more like arena football but for hockey and that isn't so bad. I wonder what the fan support will be like.
