BOCA RATON, Fla. -- The NHL's general managers took time from their annual March meeting here to honor one of their peers, Larry Pleau, the manager of the St. Louis Blues from 1997-2010.

Pleau was to be honored Monday night during a dinner with the current managers.

"It's going to be a really good night tonight," said Doug Armstrong, the current GM with the Blues. "There will be a few laughs and probably a few tears too."

During his time as the manager of the Blues, the team posted a 468-396-120 record and captured the Presidents' Trophy in 1999-2000. From 1997-2003, the Blues went 260-153-63-16, the best six-year run in franchise history.

Pleau also was a primary builder of the success the team is enjoying today. He had a hand in the drafting of many of the building blocks, including Barret Jackman, Jay McClement, Erik Johnson, Roman Polak, David Perron, David Backes, T.J. Oshie, Patrik Berglund and Alex Pietrangelo.


Memories abound as Carlyle returns to Anaheim

ANAHEIM -- Emotions have always been a trademark of Randy Carlyle, despite his gruff exterior, and it was difficult for him to ignore them when he arrived at Honda Center on Monday morning.

Carlyle said hi to the parking lot attendant -- "He's the guy that used to look after your wife and your kids when you came to the rink … it's an emotional time when you see him." -- and then he saw the man that washes the players' cars in the parking lot.

"I see players have new cars," Carlyle said, joking. "I don't see any coaches' cars out there. It's always nice to come back and see the people that you spent seven-plus years with."

There will be more emotions when the Anaheim Ducks recognize Carlyle on Monday night, when he returns to coach in Anaheim for the first time since he was fired Nov. 30, 2011, and hired a few months later by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Anaheim will do a video tribute during the first television timeout to honor the coach who guided the team to its first Stanley Cup in 2007. Carlyle can look up and see the banner. He won't go so far as to wear his Cup ring.

GMs considering minor changes to overtime

Monday, 03.10.2014 / 4:49 PM / News

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Dry-scraping the entire ice sheet and requiring teams to switch ends after regulation are two modifications to the current overtime format which are gaining momentum after the first day of the annual March meetings of the League's general managers.

The managers are considering the changes as a way to have more games end in overtime rather than the shootout.

Since 2005-06, when the shootout was implemented, approximately 57 percent of the games which have gone to overtime were decided in a shootout, a number the GMs would like to see decline.

"Anything that reduces the number of shootouts I would vote for," Calgary Flames president of hockey operations and acting general manager Brian Burke said.


GMs not inclined to make major changes to game

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- The NHL's 30 general managers spent the first day of the annual March meeting discussing a variety of possible changes to the game. However, there did not appear to be appetite for large-scale change.

The meeting Monday, which lasted approximately four hours, featured three breakout groups, each consisting of a panel of 10 general managers. The main topics discussed were: potential changes to the current overtime format; the possibility of expanding the scope of video review and/or implementing a coach's challenge; and an examination of goaltender interference, including the possibility of adding a video-review element.

The GMs will meet in full-group sessions Tuesday and Wednesday, but seem to be taking more of a wait-and-see approach this time around.

Erie Otters center Connor McDavid, a candidate to be the first pick of the 2015 NHL Draft, on Monday was named Ontario Hockey League Player of the Week.

McDavid led the league with 11 points (four goals, seven assists) in three games and also finished with a plus-8 rating in that span.

He had a goal and three assists in an 11-2 win against the Plymouth Whalers on March 5, including a spectacular move through 2014 draft prospect Alexander Peters to score. He had two goals and two assists in a 6-1 win against the Windsor Spitfires on March 7 and had goal and two assists in a 7-3 triumph against the Kitchener Rangers on Saturday.

McDavid's scoring efforts helped Erie win all three games and reach the 100-point mark for the first time since 2001.


Stroumboulopoulos new host of 'Hockey Night'

Monday, 03.10.2014 / 3:21 PM / News


Calling it their "dream team," Sportsnet on Monday in Toronto unveiled some of its hosts for when it takes over as the national broadcaster of NHL games in Canada.

Among the changes is George Stroumboulopoulos taking over as host of "Hockey Night in Canada."

"Hockey is one of my deep-seated passions and I'm thrilled to be going full circle, returning to my roots in sports broadcasting," Stroumboulopoulos said.

The 41-year-old is best known in Canada for his news-focused talk show on CBC, but said he got his start as a sports reporter, including time at the radio station now known as Sportsnet 590 AM.

"A lot of people don't realize I started my career in sports and I was in sports long before I was on television," Stroumboulopoulos said. "That's how I learned how to interview, talking to athletes pre- and postgame."


Capitals will have to beat the best to make playoffs

Monday, 03.10.2014 / 2:45 PM / NHL Insider

ARLINGTON, Va. -- The Washington Capitals' road to a Stanley Cup Playoff berth is littered with potential potholes.

Beginning with a home-and-home series with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday and Tuesday, seven of Washington's next nine games are against teams currently ranked among the NHL's top 10.

Six of the Capitals' seven opponents during this stretch occupy playoff spots as of Monday, and the one that does not, the Vancouver Canucks, is not exactly a pushover despite its recent pratfalls.

A three-game road trip through California awaits March 18-22. The Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks are tied for the second-most home wins League-wide with 24. In regards to the Sharks specifically, the Capitals are 1-15-2 against them since the start of the 1999-00 season and have not won in San Jose since Oct. 30, 1993.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.

— Brian Elliott to Jeremy Rutherford of the Post-Dispatch on being the Blues' No. 1 goalie
