GM Meetings Produce Little News

From Helene Elliott at the LA Times,

The general managers’ meetings produced many discussions but little news.

Among the issues debated were whether to disclose injuries and whether to adopt no-touch icing. The consensus was no and no.

“We play the number of games that we play and reporting injuries sometimes could be a detriment to the players’ health rather than a positive,” said Lou Lamoriello of the New Jersey Devils.

“We report the player as possible he’s playing or not playing, our practices are open every day. Everybody sees who practices, who doesn’t practice. I’m one who believes you shouldn’t report injuries.”

plus more on the GM meetings, and some words from Brian Burke on his contract status.

Note: Burke also told an interviewer on HNIC on CBC during Game 5 that the meetings produced some positive discussion on the possibility of limiting OT penalties to one-minute in length. He indicated the issue will be passed onto the AHL for further approval and testing.
