I don't know the specifics about the meeting but I like the idea. The GMs/Owners and the players are the 2 real parties in this affaire

I assume the meeting will end up leading a little more closely to Tortorella's recommendations than Gainey's, since the goal is to open up scoring chances. But Gainey usually plays/manages the game for whatever era is upon him, and is widely respected, so his opinions will hold water.

Lapresse had a good article about this. Gainey was interviewed and he's the first one to think that the game is too defensive and conservative right now. Sure he was a great defensive player and he won a lot by building teams that were sound defensively, but that doesn't mean he thinks that defense is all that great for the sport. He wants the nhl to come back with a few changes to make it more entertaining.

Gainey is good at adjusting. He built the Stars around air-tight D after New Jersey's success, but Minnesota before that wasn't known as a boring defensive team. But with the Habs he seems to be willing to allow for offence, as the Kovalev trade suggested. He's high on other offensive talents like Kostitsyn and Perezhogin as well when everyone assumed he'd bring in grinders and big guys because we were small and wimpy before...
