The NHL and NHLPA are ready to agree on something, but it's not a good thing. They're about to agree that they won't be playing a full 82-game season in 2012-13 as collective bargaining agreement issues remain.
The NHL plans to withdraw its most recent proposal to the NHLPA after Thursday's deadline passes, thus ending any hope that a full season would be played, according to ESPN.
There's still a chance that hockey gets played this season, but if that doesn't happen, fans across the world are going to be devastated.
