Are you not excited for hockey or are you staying away from the sport because of the lockout? Or just too tired?

What the Faulk 01-06-2013 05:43 AM

Why are so many things happening at 5am on a Sunday?

snakepliskin 01-06-2013 06:06 AM

so what else happened at 5am besides the agreement and me rolling out of bed to go to the head?

DaveG 01-06-2013 06:10 AM

Stoked.

I want to read over the new CBA to see the specifics, but I'm ready for this to get underway.

I'll be excited when the puck actually drops on the ice.

Caniac4ever 01-06-2013 06:50 AM

Unbelievable. I had serious doubts this day would ever actually come. NHL hockey will never be the same for me, but I still hope that this ridiculous lockout hasn't hurt the sport too bad. Thrilled we have hockey back!

Sasha Cares 01-06-2013 06:53 AM

When will we know game 1?

Caniac125330 01-06-2013 07:06 AM

Wooooooooooooo!

TSN listed some agreements in the new CBA:


- The players' share of hockey-related revenue will drop from 57 percent to a 50-50 split for all 10 years.

- The league coming off their demand for a $60 million cap in Year 2, meeting the NHLPA's request to have it at $64.3 million - which was the upper limit from last year's cap. The salary floor in Year 2 will be $44 million.

- The upper limit on the salary cap in the first year is $60 million, but teams can spend up to $70.2 million. The cap floor will be $44 million.

- The 10-year deal also has an opt-out clause that kicks in after eight years.

- The salary variance on contracts from year to year cannot vary more than 35 per cent and the final year cannot vary more than 50 per cent of the highest year.

- A player contract term limit for free agents will be seven years and eight years for a team signing its own player.

- The draft lottery selection process will change with all 14 teams fully eligible for the first overall pick. The weighting system for each team may remain, but four-spot move restriction will be eliminated.

- Supplemental discipline for players in on-ice incidents will go through NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan first, followed by an appeal process that would go through Bettman. For suspensions of six or more games, a neutral third party will decide if necessary.

- Revenue sharing among teams will spread to $200 million. Additionally, an NHLPA-initiated growth fund of $60 million is included.

- The NHL had hoped to change opening of free agency to July 10, but the players stood firm and it remains July 1 in the new agreement. But with a later ending to the season, free agency for this summer will start at a later date.

Also, a decision on NHL participation at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games will be made outside of the new CBA. While it is likely that the league will participate, the IIHF and IOC will have discussions with the NHL and Players' Association.

This. As pissed as I was/am, I can't voluntarily stay away.

TheBigKahuna 01-06-2013 08:47 AM

So, it will be 8-10 years before they screw it up all over again? I'd love to hear more about the 8 year opt out.

snakepliskin 01-06-2013 09:21 AM

sooo, what is on JR's to do list today?

halleJOKEL 01-06-2013 09:25 AM

Figure out who he wants in training camp from the Checkers. I'm guessing Boychuk, Sutter, Wallace, Faulk (obviously), Sangs, Gragnani, and the goalies.

DaveG 01-06-2013 09:38 AM

Yeah from the sound of it JR was expecting goalie to be the biggest position battle in camp. All 3 of Boucher, Peters, and Ellis are expected to get a shot, which is interesting since Ellis isn't actually under contract with the Canes.

If he happens to outshine the others in the camp it's pretty easy to give him a contract.

Hopefully convincing Alex Semin to join the team.

I would think Welsh, Bowman, and Dalpe would likely be there.

They should have a full 4th line of Checkers so that the 4th line can play meaningful minutes early. I can't imagine Jordan and Eric are going to be ready to go 20+ minutes a piece in a week and a half. Especially considering Eric's usual starts.
