Friedman thinks next season's bye week(s) will be during Olympics (just in case individuals do go). But still thinks the whole Olympic go/no-go is a game of chicken.

Blues Insider: Will the NHL alter its points system?

http://www.stltoday.com/sports/hocke...21b9e5c29.html


Quote:
There has been speculation for years about the league altering its system again, and it was broached at last week’s NHL general manager’s meetings in Boca Raton, Fla. Some support exists for a “3-2-1” system, in which clubs would receive three points for a regulation win, two points for an overtime win and one point for an OT loss. Others such as Toronto GM Lou Lamoriello are suggesting to continue awarding two points for a win, but abolish the “loser point” for teams that fall in overtime.

“I’m also not in favor of getting a point if you don’t win,” Lamoriello told reporters. “I’d rather see the game be two (points) and zero (points) or end up in a tie, one and one.”

The general managers left the Sunshine State without recommending any changes to the NHL’s Board of Governors.

“It’s been the same dialogue for a number of years, but it wasn’t a long discussion about it because there’s not an appetite from the league’s perspective,” Blues GM Doug Armstrong said. “It’s something that some people bring up, but it’s not something that we discuss a lot.”
Quote:
“You have to model it out and see, how much does it change?” Calgary GM Brad Treliving told reporters. “We were a little mixed on that. The whole idea behind it is, with five minutes to go or 10 minutes to go in a 2-2 game, is the game better because we’re chasing another point or is it going to make that much difference?”
Quote:
“The system that we’re in right now, you can fuss all you want about it,” Treliving said. “But we’ve got parity and I don’t think we’re changing that anytime soon.”

From GM meetings, word came that protected lists would not be made public.

However, it appears the situation is not set in stone, and the NHLPA is still taking to league as well over this.

So, there is the possibility that lists will be made public.
