To paraphrase Gerald Ford, my fellow hockey fans, our long NHL nightmare is finally over!

Scot Beckenbaugh deserves a lot of credit for helping the sides find the path to an agreement.

Told possible reason #CBA deal. Bettman under intense pressure from major sponsors. Sponsors nervous investing again in "devalued product"

Tentative deal yes. But no official deal until both sides agreed on the written language of the CBA.

Looks like they will play at least 50 games, but when season starts will depend on how long it takes to finalize language, ratify/approve.

Definitely need to point out that the language needs to be completed and both the owners and players need to ratify it.

Am told neither side has issues starting season mid-week in order to maximize # games. Building availability an issue.

As others have noted league will be looking to kick off with as many rivalry games as possible.

Start date to this season has yet to be determined, expect that to come within next 24-48 hours.

Hat tip to US federal mediator Scot L. Beckenbaugh. It was his hard work Friday & Saturday which brought two sides back together. #NHLCBA
