GMs prepare for whirlwind start to NHL season

David Poile and George McPhee have plenty in common, most notably that they are two of the longest-tenured general managers in the NHL and the only two to hold that position for the Washington Capitals in the past 30 years.

"We don't know what is going to happen, and it is going to be real unpredictable for everyone, and that's OK because we're playing hockey," McPhee said Wednesday after the NHL Board of Governors voted to ratify a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Should the NHL Players' Association also ratify the agreement -- they are expected to vote Friday and Saturday -- it could set in motion a whirlwind week for GMs across the League.
