Well Per at least Backstrom will go thanks to Ted Leonis (sp) Caps owner be cool AF, allowing players to go, as he cares for his players like family.

2 new rule change recommendations made today. Still need league approval:

Rule 87 Time-outs: The Committee recommends a change so that no time-out shall be granted following an icing for the team that committed the icing infraction.

Rule 80.4: The Committee recommends a change so that when a team has a power-play and a player on the team at full strength causes a stoppage of play as the result of striking the puck with a high stick in the offensive zone, the resulting face-off shall be made in the neutral zone on the nearest face-off spot. This makes the rule consistent with the how the face-off is addressed when there is a stoppage under the same circumstances when both teams are at full strength.


Rule 87 could have significant impact especially late in a game. Rule 80.4 shouldn't mean much.

NHLPA begin voting today to raise cap by 2.5% escalator. That would raise the cap to 75M. Results expected very soon, well anywhere from 24 hours to 4 days.

Isn't it a foregone conclusion that the players will want a higher cap?

No, due to the rising cost of escrow there is division within the PA. Yes a higher cap potentially increases jobs and or increases salaries but with that up goes escrow. But inside sources say they expect the PA to overwhelming vote yes to the increase.
