It may have taken a bit longer than some fans would like, but the lockout is now officially over.

The NHL and NHLPA have signed off on a CBA Memorandum of Understanding meaning both sides have agreed to the terms contained within the new agreement. That now opens the door for the release of the NHL regular-season schedule as well as freeing up general managers to sign and trade players just two hours from now, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie.

With just seven days before the start of the regular season, you can expect moves to come fast and furious as teams prepare for a 48-game schedule sent to end in late-April. We’ll have more on the schedule and more coming very soon.

    Time to drop the puck on the 48 game playoff!

      You peasants. Lap up the leftovers. The NHL and NHLPA have given you drones the privilege to spend your money on their sport after they basically told you for four months that they could not care less about you. Spend away morons.

      Keep suckling on the NHL teat. Pathetic.

    Reports indicate the Canucks have sent Luongo to the Leafs for the rights to Johnny Bower and a Dave Keon rookie card!!! Trying to confirm.

    It will be interesting to see how the first month plays out as players adjust to such a short prep time. The teams that do it best will come out in front first obviously, but injuries will play a major role in the outcome of the season.
