Day 2 Of The GM Meetings

from Dan Rosen of NHL.com,

NHL general managers want to give the final authority on goaltender interference reviews initiated by the coach's challenge to the Situation Room in Toronto.

The on-ice officials have the final authority on these reviews, but they consult with members of the NHL Hockey Operations Department in the Situation Room before deciding to allow or overturn the goal.

The League hopes to an announcement on the potential change in the review process Wednesday, but it is still determining whether it needs approval from other organizations, including the NHL Players' Association, the NHL Officials Association and the Board of Governors, because it involves a change in playing conditions.

The hope is to implement the change immediately.

continued with offside and delay of game talk too...

Chris Johnston of Sportsnet with his recap including this,

The NHL has been in touch with U.S. Congress about a new tax law that could see its American-based teams forced to pay capital gains taxes if they trade an asset for something more valuable.

The new law was signed by President Donald Trump and has raised concerns inside Major League Baseball and the NBA, according to Monday’s New York Times, and like those leagues the NHL is trying to get a handle on exactly what the fallout will be for its clubs.

“We are looking in to it,” commissioner Gary Bettman told Sportsnet on Tuesday.

According to the Times: “The law changed a corner of the tax code that mostly applies to farmers, manufacturers and other businesses that until recently could swap certain assets like trucks and machinery tax-free. But by adding a single word to the newly written tax code — ‘real’ — the law now allows only real estate swaps to qualify for that special treatment.”
