The NHL lockout is OVER, as both the NHL and NHLPA have reached a tentative agreement that will end the 113 day lockout and return hockey to fans. A deal, which was reached in the early hours of Sunday morning, will allow hockey to return to arenas shortly.According to Hockey Night in Canada's reporter Elliotte Friedman, who broke the story, the immediate details of the new agreement have not yet been made available, but some details have been leaked. Friedman states that the deal is structured much like the new CBA's for the NFL and NBA where it's a 10-year contract with an opt-out clause after year eight. The salary cap has been raised by roughly $3 million, from $60 million to now $63.4 million.At least this wasn't like the 2004-05 lockout, which saw the ENTIRE SEASON being cancelled.
