from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY,
NHL Players Association executive director Paul Kelly said players are ready to discuss the possibility of allowing the league to schedule two showcase games on Christmas Day….
Having completed his fall tour with players, Kelly said he came away believing the majority of players are open to the idea of having one early game and one late game that could be featured on national television.
Kelly said he would envision having two close-proximity rivals play each other to cut down on the travel time for the visiting team.
“We certainly see the importance of this from a marketing standpoint,” Kelly said.
