NHL Lockout Is Over

The 4 month NHL lockout is now over as of Janaury 6th, 2013. The NHL and the player’s union finally came to an agreement that is suppose to be finalized sometime this week. 

The league did not announce a start date for the season or how many games they will play.  I’ve heard rumors that the teams will play either 50 game or 48 game schedules.  Hopefully they will announce the dates soon.

Last time there was a lockout (2004-2005) the fans flocked back to the rinks and jumped right back into the game.  Will that be the same this year?  According to my Twitter feed it seems that everyone is excited for the games to begin.

I’m still on the fence.  I am happy that hockey is back but I am still ticked off about the whole lockout.  Many people were out of jobs, businesses lost a ton of money and I didn’t get to watch the Leafs play.  What do you think? Are you excited for hockey to be back?
