The NHL’s players and executives are discussing how to improve the game and have put together a proposal that would allow them to share that information with the public.
It would give the league the ability to communicate with its players and players’ unions about the impact of their actions on the game, and allow the leagues video review committee to help the league identify players who are contributing to misconduct.
The league and union both released a statement Thursday that said the proposal is a step in the right direction, but it would not eliminate the need for video review.
The proposal would not change any of the current rules, but the players’ association said the league could implement the proposals without violating existing rules.
The players’ union said it was encouraged by the league’s response and said the proposed changes were the best option for the league to address issues.
Players and unions are also trying to reach an agreement on how to distribute the information between the league and the players union, which has been working on the proposal for months.
