From Stu Hackel at Red Light on SI.com:
In a briefing published on the league’s website, KHL President Alexander Medvedev said Tuesday that he is interested in improving relations with the NHL in the aftermath of last week’s Lokomotiv Yaroslavl plane crash.
“After the Lokomotiv tragedy I had a call from NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, who expressed his condolences,” he said. “The grief is felt by the whole hockey family. Now we can take a new view of all our differences with the NHL. I repeat once again: When we cooperate we can achieve much more for hockey than when in conflict or in isolation. I would like very much for this to be no mere surge of emotion, but that we move in step with each other. Gary and I agreed to meet in the near future and consider how we can further work together.”
This is good news because relations between the two league have sometimes been frosty, with gusts up to nasty, for a few years.
