With the lockout over, all that’s left is for everyone on both sides to sign off on the new deal. First up to do so will be the teams.’s Pierre LeBrun reports the NHL Board of Governors will meet on Wednesday to vote on the new CBA. The NHLPA will also vote this week.

This is all part of the formality of finishing off the process and it’s not expected there will be any issues in ratifying the new 10-year deal.

      Did you drink the Pierre McGuire kool-aid ? Like I commented on another story in PHT ; I hope he pisses off Millbury, or Roenick on air so we can see him get his ass beat on air ! He’s like the Bob Villa of hockey, always stating the obvious !

    Wouldn’t it be funny it they found something to argue about? 😀 No, you’re right, it really wouldn’t.

    im disgusted its only a ten year deal. Im taking no part in watching my islanders build a team to be locked out again in 2012. eff off NHL

      and they can opt out after 8! what BS!

      Really though… they just wanted to secure the season of 2017 which will be the NHL’s 100th anniversary… BIG MONEY SEASON, then it’s screw the fans 4.0 all over again!

        even with the agreement it doesn’t mean that there couldn’t be a work stoppage sooner. If the NHLPA or the NHL feels the other party is in violation of the new agreement and are willing to battle for better leverage in a new deal….they will do it. Honestly 10 years is a long time from a business perspective. A lot can change: ratings could go down or up along with revenue. The key is getting the owners to stop trying to destroy the union and actually hold negotiations before the agreement expires to prevent another lockout. The owners got what they wanted. They dragged this out till the bitter end at the expense of the fans. Greedy bastards

        @hawkeyplayer and calithirteen Fools seldom differ. If those “greedy bastards” don’t win then some where down the road there will be no league. Remember only 10% of the teams make good money.
