The NHL and the Player's Association were just sitting around, doing nothing, probably not watching hockey like every other hockey fan.
Eventually they realized the world would be a better place with hockey in it, so they started meeting again.
The talks lasted over seven hours! The meeting on Tuesday went so well that they've agreed to meet again today for more talks.
All details are being kept under wraps so we can only assume things are going well.
"We're hopeful that we'll start bargaining and we'll continue bargaining until we find a way to make a deal. Sometimes that goes in rather long sessions with short breaks and sometimes you take a few hours or half a day or a day to work on things before you come back together. I don't know which it will be. We certainly hope we'll be continuing to meet on a regular basis. I hope they do, too. I'm just not making any predictions."
Well c'mon, you guys, make it happen!
Let's get hockey back on the air!
Do it for the fans! Or for the money you all stand to make!
Just work it outttttt!
