Thursday’s GM Meetings

From Pierre LeBrun at his ESPN blog:

The NHL’s 30 general managers met in Chicago on Thursday and left with some homework. They’ve got to chew on three rule change recommendations before reconvening at their next meeting in March and possibly voting on them.

• The first is the Larry Pleau idea that I first detailed last weekend, essentially changing the delayed penalty rule to the penalized team having to fully clear the puck from their defensive zone to get a stoppage in play, as opposed to simply having puck possession. The St. Louis Blues GM believes, and he’s probably right, it would create more offensive chances with the sixth attacker on the ice for a bit longer before a whistle goes. I like this one.

• The second has to do with hand passes and making them more consistent all over the ice.
