I'm VERY excited about this tentative agreement. I've been an avid hockey fan since childhood. (as you can see by my age, that's a long time)
I was getting worried about going into withdrawl with the football season ending soon and having no hockey to watch. Life is good once again.
I'm not going to get too excited until the ink is dry on the CBA. Either side could still blow this. for sanity to prevail.
