from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
Is it finally time to re-name the NHL's major awards?
Several years ago this subject was first broached by NHL executive vice president Colin Campbell, the idea of renaming some of the major awards after more modern-day hockey icons.
It didn’t generate enough support at the time within the league’s top power brokers. But when asked about it again by ESPN.com this week, Campbell said that he’s open to discussing it again, especially keeping in mind that the league’s 100-year anniversary is around the corner.
He has not yet broached it with the commissioner’s office or the NHL’s Board of Governors, but he’s discussed it within his own staff.
"It’s something I’ve been passionate about for a long time," Campbell said.
Whether or not it goes anywhere, well that remains to be seen.
continued plus other topics include Player Safety candidates and paying the coaches...
Me, keep the names of the trophies, change the names of the divisions.
Regarding the Player Safety candidates, my question is why didn't the NHL do this in the off-season? To me they should have had everyone in position before the season started.
