According to a reliable source (SMLG), the lockout/strike is over. Also, The Hockey News reports similarly, as do wire services such as CNN/SI. Still pending ratification or some such shit… and there are some purported rules changes in the new deal, too.
I guess we’ll have to wait for more details after the ratification process… which sounds painfully boring.
Yay for hockey’s return! They’re all still a bunch of pricks, if you ask me, though.
