Finally! Jeez!

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.

Finally! Some friggin progress!

As we previously mentioned, the NHL and the NHLPA (player's association) have been butting heads over who gets what cut of the revenue.

As of last season, players were getting a 57% cut of the revenue brought in by the NHL.

The NHL wanted to cut that down to 43%!

So of course they had trouble reaching middle ground.

Finally though, it's looking like the lockout might be ending soon.
