What's that thing called when you break up with someone, both see other people and then decide you are going to get back together and have to pretend like the last 6 months never happened? Yeah. It's time for about 1000cc of that.

After 16 hours of bargaining and mediation Saturday and early into Sunday morning, the National Hockey League and its Players Association came through with a tentative labour agreement that will see the remainder of the 2012-2013 season played out under a pro-rated salary cap.

A groggy Gary Bettman, who was speaking about as quickly as Luke Schenn accelerates, clarified that the deal must be ratified on both sides, and that there was no information available yet on schedule or number of games to be played.

This is per Sportsnet's Josh Rimer.

To tear away your attention from a thrilling football game between Green Bay and Minnesota, I think it's become known that the collective bargaining agreement is close, if nothing is finalized. It sounds like the NHL really wants to get something going by the middle of the month—January 19th is the apparent start date—so that leaves a minimal amount of time for the Vancouver Canucks to unload their franchise goaltender before then.

Province reporter Jason Botchford pegs it at a 0.0% chance that the Canucks bring back both Luongo and Cory Schneider, which means the team would need to facilitate a trade within the next week, presumably before training camp begins.

The Year of the Bettman 

Hmm, now that I think about it, 2013 makes a way better Year of the Bettman.

Anyway, given that January 11 will mark one year since the first #GraphicComment hit Twitter, I thought it appropriate to take a look back at the year that was in graphic terms.

And for you cynics out there, yes, this is like one of those Best Of albums. There is nothing new here, other than the on graphic above. The rest are just repeats. But hey, since I only had about 10 followers on Twitter for most of the year, and I'm pretty sure at least eight of those were my mom, you probably didn't see these. Plus they have been digitally remastered and colourized. So how could you go wrong? Send your money now.

Er, no don't. No purchase necessary, just click past the jump...
