GAME ON!!!!!:

story

for the lazy:
NHL agrees to deal after all-night bargaining session
ESPN.com news services

NEW YORK -- The NHL and the players' association reached an agreement in principle on a new labor deal, ending a lockout that wiped out last season, the sides announced in statements Wednesday.

The sides met for 24 hours from Tuesday into Wednesday to hammer out the collective bargaining agreement that will return the NHL to the ice.

Both sides still need to raitfy the deal. That process is expected to be completed next week, the league and the union said in a joint news release.

A prominent player agent told ESPN The Magazine's E.J. Hradek that the draft lottery will be held on July 21, with the entry draft being held in Ottawa on July 30.

"We met all night," NHL chief legal officer Bill Daly said in an e-mail.

It took all night and then some for the final round of negotiations to produce an agreement.

The sides met for 10 straight days in New York, and it became clear Wednesday morning -- the 301st day of the lockout -- that they weren't going to leave the room without an agreement in hand.

The expected salary cap will likely have a ceiling approaching $40 million and a minimum somewhere between $20 million and $25 million.

Player salaries will not exceed 54 percent of league-wide revenues.

Some players in recent days have voiced their displeasure over what will be included in the new deal.

Commissioner Gary Bettman warned in February when he canceled the season that the offers the union passed up were better than any it would see once a year of hockey was lost.

Just days before the NHL became the first North American sports league to wipe out a full season, the players' association said for the first time it would accept a salary cap if the NHL dropped its desire to link player costs to revenues.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

We'll ESPN didn't renew their contract if I remember correctly so who knows where you will be able to watch it.

I just read this over on si.com. This is great. Why the hell they couldn't do this last year....that's what I want to know.

And knowing is half the battle.

I think the players realized they ran out of booze money and had to get playing again.

Hockey is like Roller Derby, a bunch of off balance folk slappin' each other.

Yet another boring sport put on pause...

Because the players decided to gamble and they lost...and lost huge.

The only side that lost bigger than the players were the fans.

this will also justify purchasing an HDTV. Hockey benefits from HD more than any other sport (except womens beach volleyball)

Baseball axed from London Olympics

SINGAPORE -- London will stage a reduced Olympic Games in 2012 after baseball and softball were wiped from the program in a controversial vote on Friday.

London's showpiece will now feature 26 sports rather than 28.

This came after after International Olympic Committee members rejected proposals to replace the axed sports with two from rugby sevens, golf, squash, karate and roller sports.

Baseball and softball failed to win a majority of votes in a ballot of members at the IOC Session and became the first sports to be cut from the Games since polo in 1936....

I think the incorrect information was

"Hockey is like Roller Derby, a bunch of off balance folk slappin' each other"

Hocket requires a great amount of balance and skill. And there is no slappin' going on just hitting and punching.

Changes to the game

With hockey now expected to return this season, most hockey fans will be interested in finding out what changes are coming, says Steve McAllister, the sports editor of The Globe and Mail.

"I think everybody's pretty tired of the talk about salary arbitration, and salary caps and revenue sharing," McAllister told CTV Newsnet.

He said that making hockey a product that people can embrace will likely be his toughest sell.

"It's obvious when you look at the league, and look at the attendance and look at television ratings, especially in the United States, that it's not a very good product right now."

To revitalize their on-ice product, the league is expected next week to announce, along with details of the new agreement, major changes to the game's rules which are intended to increase the game's appeal and win more fans.

These include:

* A three-minute overtime period with three players from each team, should the score remain tied following the current five-minute overtime.
* The fan-friendly shootout, which will be used if games remain tied.
* Removing the red line to allow two-line passes without an off-side being called. This would presumably open up offensive chances and allow for more breakaways.
* Reducing the size of goalie equipment, intended to allow for more goals to be scored.

All good stuff, IMO.

Call me a purist, but those changes are bull****. They'd better at least leave the playoffs alone.

<--- Would rather see a well played 2-1 game, then a 9-7 game.

This is great! I hope the B's can get the first pick so they can draft Sidney Crosby. And the game needs to opened up again. I want to see a bunch of 6-5 games this year.

More people would watch if they saw more goals.

Atleast they got rid of the offsides.
