from Ken Campbell at the Hockey News,
Wednesday in New York, deputy commissioner Bill Daly and the NHL’s marketing team will be meeting with a number of high-profile agents to discuss its strategy on how to market the league’s star players. “They maintain they are creating a new direction,” said one agent who will take part in the two-hour meeting. “The players will not be hidden anymore. They’ll be front and center.” It’s about time. For too long, the NHL has been loathe to promote its solo talents, instead trying to sell the league as a triumph of a team concept.
