from Scott Burnside and Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
It appears the “staged fights” rule recommended by the NHL’s 30 GMs will not see the light of day.
The players discussed it at their meeting here this week and they recommended to their members on the competition committee to vote against it. The committee needs seven of 10 votes to pass a new rule and they won’t get it if all five players vote no next Thursday when the group meets in Montreal.
The union brought in a number of tough guys Wednesday and they shared their universal thumbs down on the “staged fights” rule proposition.
continued plus some goaltender equipment & Pronger talk too…
