disgree, the hockey fans will be back, but i see your point on the fringe fans...but you have to understand the NHL see's their high ratings AFTER the NFL playoffs slow down/are over, so they will be starting the season right in that time.

The casual fans they picked up over the last couple years will be gone for a while, but the NHL's base always comes back, that's why it's the base.

However, it will take a few years to reach where they were before the lockout, baring a Kings/Rangers Stanley Cup, or something like that.

NEW YORK -- NHL players are ready to go back to work, but the lockout isn't over yet.

After a 36-hour vote that ended Saturday morning, the players' association announced that its members approved the deal reached with the league last week.

However, the sides continued to work to complete a difficult memorandum of understanding that must be signed before camps can open and the new schedule to be released.

Until then, hockey can't get back to regular business.

The league's board of governors unanimously ratified the contract on Wednesday. The plan was for training camps to open on Sunday, assuming the memorandum of understanding was finished. Voluntary physicals and medical exams were permitted to begin on Friday.

The players' vote wasn't unanimous, as a source told ESPN that 667 players voted "yes," while 12 voted "no." The players saw an 89 percent turnout in voting.

The remaining transition rules, such as when players can go on the ice and for how long, were still being finalized.

"While the players' vote ratifies the new CBA with the NHL owners, a written memorandum of understanding consistent with what the players voted on, must be completed before the agreement becomes final," a union statement said Saturday.

Less than a week after the league and the union worked all night to secure an agreement to save the season, players followed team owners and approved the tentative deal that was reached last Sunday -- the 113th day of the lockout.

Unofficial team workouts have been taking place around the league all week. A 48-game season is expected to begin Jan. 19 without any preseason games in advance, assuming there are no more glitches in negotiations.

A total of 510 games, the Winter Classic and the All-Star Game were all casualties of the four-month lockout that began Sept. 16. The regular season was supposed to open on Oct. 11.

NEW YORK -- NHL players finally are headed back to work.

The sides completed a difficult memorandum of understanding Saturday night, meaning camps can open Sunday.

The completion of the memorandum of understanding came after the players' association announced that its members approved the new labor deal following a 36-hour vote that concluded Saturday morning.

A 48-game regular season will begin next Saturday with 26 teams in action. It will conclude April 27, and the playoffs will begin April 30. There will be no preseason games.

The league's board of governors unanimously ratified the contract on Wednesday.

The players' vote wasn't unanimous, as a source told ESPN that 667 players voted "yes," while 12 voted "no." The players saw an 89 percent turnout in voting.

Unofficial team workouts have been taking place around the league all week. Voluntary physicals and medical exams were permitted to begin on Friday.

For this shortened season only, the trade deadline will be April 3 and free agency will open July 5.

A total of 510 games, the Winter Classic and the All-Star Game were all casualties of the four-month lockout that began Sept. 16. The regular season was supposed to open on Oct. 11.
