from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
- Anybody else think the NHL needs to get rid of the trapezoid? The GMs asked that question of the NHLPA’s Mathieu Schneider during meetings last week in Boca Raton, Fla. Schneider didn’t deny that the players would also like to see it go. But, the union is worried about the safety of defencemen. Like everything else in the NHL, the trapezoid won’t go away any time quickly.
- Calgary’s Brian Burke will resume his search for a GM after the season. The popular thinking is he is waiting to see if former Dallas GM Joe Nieuwendyk has any interest. If he doesn’t — and it’s believed he has already told the Flames no thanks — then a possible candidate is Washington GM George McPhee. His contract is up on July 1 and the club is in a tough position to make the post-season.
- Goalie Roberto Luongo will face his former Canucks’ teammates Sunday in Florida for the first time since being dealt. Asked by a reporter Saturday if he missed the Canadian media, he replied: “Is that a trick question?”
