NHL And Players’ Association Reach Tentative Agreement To End Lockout

DETROIT (WWJ) – It looks like there will be a hockey season after all – shortened for sure, but perhaps back in business in a week or so.

The NHL and the players’ association reached a tentative agreement to end a nearly four-month-old lockout.

Jeff Riger covers the Red Wings for 97-1 the Ticket, says fans aren’t necessarily happy about the news.

“Some fans feel, and this is them, I disagree, but I don’t think the Wings will be as good. They lost Nick Lidstrom, they lost Brad Stewart …,” said Riger.”I think a lot of fans feel this year might not be the best for the Wings, but selfishly I think most people think they might not make the post season, maybe I don’t want hockey.”

All schedule issues, including the length of the season and the look of the schedule, still need to be worked out.
