The NHL is one step closer to resuming play next season. On Thursday, the NHLPA put the labour dispute with the league behind them ratifying a new collective bargaining agreement. "I'm pleased to announce that NHLPA members voted today and ratified the new collective bargaingin agreement. If the board of governors do the same on Friday, the hockey world will soon be able to celebrate the return of NHL hockey", announced NHLPA Executive Director Bob Goodenow at Thursday's news conference. The union boss said 87 to 88 per cent of players who voted approved the new deal. "We're fully committed to the new deal and we anticipate great success for the game as we go forward."
