Easily the most optimistic I’ve seen the assembled hockey media since this #NHL lockout began. Guys are gonna get the bends if this fails.

While it has been a roller coaster ride over the past few months, today has seemed to hit a new high…but be cautious. We’ve seen how quickly this ride can be derailed. With only days left to reach an agreement, it’s important to be cautiously optimistic.
If, in fact, a season does happen, it will be around 48 games in length. It will be much different than a regular, 82 game season, but hockey would be back. At least fans would have the NHL for half of a season.
The next 24 hours COULD be huge for hockey. Hopefully, they will.
