NHL lockout is finally over
Someone said, well, you might as well put your tie on, Shane, so Shane Doan took the blue diamond-checked tie out of his pocket and affixed it around his neck. He did it because the National Hockey League lockout of 2012-13 was over at 5 a.m. Eastern time, after a vast 16-hour bargaining session, and the cameras were coming in. He was the only player in the ballroom wearing a suit. Might as well look his best.
That is what the NHL and its players will have to do now, after 113 days spent battling and bickering and burning games. They will have to put the best face on a sport that was marred by a lockout that didn’t need to go this long, and didn’t need to be this ugly. The NHL needs to make amends, because the damage could be deep.
