A tentative agreement has been reached between NHL and NHLPA - source— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) January 6, 2013 Tentative agreement reached between NHL and NHLPA— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) January 6, 2013 Lockout is tentatively over.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) January 6, 2013 Sportsnet learned 64.3m final cap hit.— Nick Kypreos (@RealKyper) January 6, 2013 May take a day or two or three to figure out for sure how many games we're playing and start date.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) January 6, 2013 Let the record show the news came down at 5:09am. The will they or won't they speculation ended with this joint Bettman/Fehr press conference shortly before 6am...they looked tired and said very little: Board of Governors and the NHLPA membership still have to ratify the deal, but that seems a formality right now. And a few more details continued to leak: As per @jsportsnet #NHL teams will only play within conference, league to start as early as Jan. 15 — Sportsnet (@Sportsnet) January 6, 2013 Further to @aaronward_nhl reporting Year 2 cap at $64.3 M, I can add that Year 2 floor will be $44 M — Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) January 6, 2013 Think I'm about 75% bitter and 25% excited.
