The NHL & NHLPA pulled an all-nighter and have been meeting since early yesterday. You've gotta think that they wouldn't have worked through the night if they weren't on the brink of an agreement.

Right?

Let's hope...

It's settled!
Stan Fischler
Jul 13, 2005


The ice HAS, at last been broken!

At 8:42 a.m. I got the phone call from one of the NHL’s chief negotiators.

“It’s settled,” he said. “We worked all Tuesday night and finished it Wednesday morning.”

While there remains, as he put it, “a day or day-and-a-half of papering” still to be completed, the basic, new Collective Bargaining Agreement has been written.

“The players side still has to get a look before it’s officially announced but the deal is done,” one of the chief bargaining officials for the league added.

The fact that a document of more than 600 pages has been written does not yet guarantee the 2005-2006 season only because the NHL Players’ Association now must ratify the pact – and there’s no firm assurance that they’ll give it the green light.

Nevertheless, a number of marquee players such as Jarome Iginla already have indicated their support and it is expected that the vote will be in favor although not necessarily by a landslide.

Pretty cool that an old salt like McKenzie would stay up all night in anticipation. Yeah, it's job related, but I'm guessing
he could have assigned an intern to wake him up in case of a deal.

In light of Fishler's article saying it was completed - I'm pretty amazed you were able to get on the HF site. :) I figured it would get zapped from the traffic.

Folks on the HF site are reporting that McKenzie said on Sportscentre, that Crosby has been told to be available a week from Thursday for the draft lottery.

Sportsnet reports the deal is done, and the pa is conferencing with the team reps now. Bettman and Goodenow will sign it after ratification.

edit - it's on the nhlpa website now also.

now we just need ratification and we are back in business!!!

NHLPA.com:

TORONTO/NEW YORK (July 13, 2005): The National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players' Association have reached an agreement in principle on the terms of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Details of the new Agreement will not be made available publicly pending the formal ratification process by NHLPA Members and the NHL Board of Governors. It is anticipated that the ratification process will be completed next week, at which time the parties will be prepared to discuss the details of the Agreement and plans for next season. No further comment will be made until then.

dammit. Ecklund is reporting it's a done deal.

If Hadley reports it soon, we'll know this is a hoax for sure.
