The owners got their revenue split and the players got their pensions. What's in it for us the fans?

A heavily discounted center ice package would be nice

Free center ice? Someone mentioned that earlier, which probably had as much accuracy as a lockout tweet.

Same here. Glad to be proven wrong. Guess the players voting twice for the disclaimer spooked the owners a bit into getting deal. Good card to play, the NBAPA did it and within two weeks or so a new CBA was agreed upon.

Either that or both sides have had enough with the games and BS and want to get back to hockey. Either way who cares, the best sport in the world is back!!!


Apparently Fehr told the players from the start that they wouldn't get their best deal until the final hour - how right he was.

Both sides were very willing to lose half a season. Neither side was willing to lose a full one. In that situation, it will take until the eleventh hour to settle.

That's a real shame. The season is on and i'm now statting to forget the harsh feelings towards both sides I felt throughout this ordeal.


Maybe it will come back when the Pens are playing but I will be keeping my money in my pocket when it comes to the NHL for the next few years.

I believe the NHL is planning on having free Center Ice and Gamecenter Live for the shortened season. It's literally the least they could do for the fans.

•Player contracts will be capped at seven seasons for free agents, eight years for players who re-sign with their teams;

•The salary cap in the second year (2013-14) will be $64.3 million, while the salary floor will be $44 million;

•The year-to-year contract variance will be 35 percent, but the lowest season can't be more than 50 percent less than the highest season to avoid back-diving contracts;

•Each team will be allowed two amnesty buyouts before the 2013-14 season, which will count against the players' sharel;

•Revenue sharing will now include $200 million with a $60 million growth fund;

•The draft lottery will change so that any team in the lottery can win the No. 1 overall pick, not be restricted in how far it can move up;

•The appeals process for supplemental discipline will still go through Gary Bettman, but a neutral third party will weigh in on suspensions of six games or more;

•There will be no more salary arbitration walkways on deals less than $3.5 million;

Got this off a site, details about the deal, Like 35% varience and 50% per the highest year. That stops the back diving deals.

That seems unlikely. The NHLN is usually sold as a part of a larger sports bundle.

I originally saw that in a LeBrun article, IIRC. He included it in a list of improvements/actions he'd make following an end to the lockout. I'm curious as to what will actually happen, both from the league and the individual teams, as far as fan relations go. Personally, I let the Pens keep my ticket money. Don't know if that means I'm in line for relatively more stuff. I'm not expecting anything, though.

My center ice package through my cable provider includes NHL network. When I don't order the center ice package I don't have NHL network...I'm holding out for that :D

Each team gets two amnesty buyouts? Was that something specified by Ed Snider? :lol:

The Flyers don't need any buyouts. I'm not sure they'll use any unless pronger wants to officially retire. But he wouldn't count against the cap anyways.

After hearing the news this morning, my indifference is unshaken.
Still, I'll be back in attendance.

However, I think that it would send a not so subtle message to the league and to the players if,
at the opening game, after the first whistle, all fans got up and left their seats.
Temporarily, of course. Just to demonstrate what playing to an empty arena
would look like, and that real people spend their hard earned, real money to see
NHL hockey.
