After a 16-hour marathon negotiating session that began Saturday and extended into early Sunday morning, the NHL and players' union agreed on a tentative pact to end the 113-day lockout (see story).
The leagues Board of Governors need to ratify the tentative 10-year CBA as do the approximate 740 players.
Several Flyers took to their Twitter accounts early Sunday to share their thoughts on the deal:
