Key details from tentative NHL labour agreement

A look at some of the key details from the tentative collective bargaining agreement announced by the NHL and the players' association on Sunday morning:

— 10-year deal, and each side is able to opt out after eight.

— Free-agent contracts are limited to a maximum length of seven years, but clubs can go to eight years to re-sign their own players.

— Players' share of hockey-related income drops from 57 per cent to a 50-50 split.

— The salary cap for the upcoming season is $70.2 million, and it will go down to $64.3 million in the 2013-14 season.

— The salary in individual player contracts can't vary more than 35 per cent year to year, and the final year can't be more than 50 per cent of the highest year.

Quote of the Day

You get more opportunity, and at the end of the day those are the times you've got to step up and show what you're made of. Together as a team, that's how you win games. I think we stuck together. That's kind of our philosophy here. We have good leadership and good guys to lean on.
