NHLPA Votes to Extend CBA

From TSN:

The NHLPA's executive board has voted unanimously not to re-open the collective bargaining agreement at the end of the NHL season, meaning the CBA will remain in place for another two years.

This is good news for hockey fans. With the CBA locked for another two years, we can enjoy the game we love without the spector of another strike or lock out in the middle of a recession.

Can you imagine the PR backlash had they shut down the league to argue over their millions while people were losing their houses and unemployment is over 7%? I'm glad at least someone was thinking a little bit.

Enjoy the All-Star break hockey fans.
