Notes On The Game Of Hockey

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

- I keep telling people what a great Stanley Cup Final this has been and they keep telling me that they don’t care and they aren’t watching … Game 2 of the Cup Final had a television rating across Canada that was about one-third of Game 7 of the Raptors-Celtics series and less than half of the Toronto-Columbus non-playoff round of playoffs.

- Paul Coffey can’t stand the gratuitous videos shown in arenas when former players return to their old towns. “I find it embarrassing,” said the Hall of Famer. “Getting booed used to be a badge of honour in the NHL. The louder you were booed, the better player you were. I liked going back to my old cities and see how loud the booing would be.”

- How is the NHL changing? “More teams are freeing up their defencemen to score than ever before,” said Scotty Bowman. “I think Peter Laviolette was the first guy to do it.” Heading into Saturday night, goal scoring among playoff defenceman was up 58% over a year ago and up 52% over two seasons ago.

Who Said It?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

“I’ve been on the phone almost constantly with other general managers in the past several days. I think there going to be a lot of movement next week. Right now, everybody is working the phones and trying to find fits. If philosophically there look to be some possible fits between your team and somebody else’s team, you start to dive a little bit deeper.

“I would anticipate most of the trades happen next week leading up to the draft.”

Prorating Of Salaries?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

...there have been and questions about whether players under NHL contract — and that includes those toiling in the AHL or ECHL — might be obligated to accept prorating of their salaries if less than a full slate of games is played in 2020-21. The NHL wouldn’t be expected to start next season until January at the earliest.

(The league, with advise and consent provided by the union, is likely to take as much time as it needs to decipher its best/worst case scenarios as to getting fans in the seats at perhaps severely limited numbers next winter. That might lead to a shortened season.)

There have been murmurs that the league might seek to invoke the force majeure clause (Paragraph 17) of the Standard Player’s Contract in order to prorate pay in the event of a truncated schedule.

The fact is, if the Memo of Understanding (MOU) — crafted by the NHL and NHLPA in wake of their agreement that enabled the league to stage the 2020 Stanley Cup tournament under the twin bubbles in Edmonton and Vancouver — is worth the paper it is written on, the subject has already been adjudicated.
