NHL, Union Reach Early Morning Deal After 113-Day Lockout
Published January 6, 2013
Coyotes RW Shane Doan said, "I think as a union we got the best deal we could possibly get and you're happy" (NORTHJERSEY.com, 1/6). Doan: "It was concessionary bargaining right from the beginning. As much as you didn’t want to, we understand that the nature of professional sports has kind of changed with the last couple CBAs starting with football and basketball and obviously hockey" (Mult., 1/6). Jets D Ron Hainsey said, "Both sides moved. (It's a) deal both sides can live with. It was a battle. Gary said a month ago it was a tough negotiation. That's what it was" (STLTODAY.com, 1/6). Hainsey added, "I don't think there's any doubt that the pension is the centrepiece of this deal for the players" (Mult., 1/6).
