Friedman's 'Headlines' include discussion of front-office compensation, Competition Committee talk

Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman issued his customary "Saturday Headlines" during the second intermission of Hockey Night in Canada's Saturday broadcast, and he discussed the following topics:

According to Friedman:

  • The NHL's GM's will ensure that teams who have fired coaches or managers will not receive draft pick compensation--only coaches and front office executives who are under contract to an NHL team, not fired by an NHL team, will require compensation;
  • Friedman believes that John Hynes, Ray Shero's AHL coach for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins will probably be named the Devils' next coach, not Phil Housley;
  • Friedman doesn't believe that the Rangers will allow the Maple Leafs to speak to New York Rangers assistant GM Jeff Gorton;
  • He states that the Capitals and Braden Hotlby's representatives have begun to talk contract turkey;
  • And the NHLPA's Competition Committee will review the NHL's GM's proposals for 4-on-4-to-3-on-3 OT, defensive centers placing their sticks on the ice first and the 5% growth factor in the salary cap will all be discussed, with a "trial period" for 3-on-3 OT and possibly lesser growth for the cap in the offing.
