The NHL and the NHLPA have agreed on a new collective bargaining agreement and we WILL have hockey this year. The big question is, do you care? So many people were jaded by the bickering of millionaires and billionaires that many said they would not watch this year, maybe even ever again.
During the 113 day lockout, many of the NHL players either played in European leagues or other leagues around the world. Pavel Datsyuk followed other prominent names such as Alex Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin and headed overseas. Datsyuk signed with CSKA Moscow of the KHL in September.
Now that NHL is back in action with a 48 game season, are you excited? Are you going to watch? Do you think hockey will ever get back to what it was? Let us know your thoughts below.
