-- Commissioner Gary Bettman lauded the state of the game as the annual three-day March meeting of NHL general managers finished Wednesday."I think if there was one conclusion to be reached from all of the discussions is I think managers to a man believe that the game is in really good shape and we're looking forward to an exciting stretch run to the [Stanley Cup] Playoffs," Commissioner Bettman said. Hockey Operations is watching and reviewing every game as it's being played, looking for trends, looking for potential issues."The three days we have with [the general managers] is a very good time for reflection, but on balance I think everybody is really extraordinarily pleased with the state of the game."Issues remain and many of those were addressed by the managers during the past three days.Commissioner Bettman continues to characterize the ongoing collective bargaining discussions between the NHL and NHL Players' Association as constructive and cordial.The current CBA, a 10-year agreement ratified in January 2013, expires after the 2021-22 season. "The people of Ottawa deserve this."The Senators traded forwards Mark Stone, Matt Duchene and Ryan Dzingel, their top three scorers, before the 2019 NHL Trade Deadline on Feb. 25, pushing deeper into a rebuild that Melnyk said could last through the 2020-21 season."Teams go through ebbs and flows both on the ice and with their fanbases," said Commissioner Bettman, who said the League would be involved in future arena plans in Ottawa if asked.
