Agent For Tavares Thinking Outside The Box

from the CP via the Globe and Mail,

Tavares’s agent, Bryan Deasley, says he has spoken with NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly and Players’ Association associate counsels Ian Penny and Stu Grimson about the possible creation of an exceptional player clause that would allow certain players to be drafted a year early.
Deasley said he has sent a memo to each party about the merits of a clause. He says he’s not asking for a blanket change in the draft age.
“We are not looking for anything other than an exceptional status consideration from the league,” he said. “Every once in a while a player comes along that compels us to look at things more clearly and differently — outside the box.”
