GMs to review newest tweaks

TORONTO — NHL general managers are expected to review rule changes and the controversial coach and executive compensation policy today at their annual November meeting.

For the first time, the league has three-on-three in overtime and coach's challenges for goaltender interference and offside plays. Deputy commissioner Bill Daly doesn't expect any changes to those rules right away.

"These rules are the way they're going to be at least for the balance of the season," Daly said Monday.

One area of debate is whether on-ice officials should decide coach's challenges in consultation with the situation room in Toronto or whether the league should do that. Now, officials watch replays at the penalty box.

Coaches have given mixed reviews; Mike Babcock of the Maple Leafs pointing out that more goals are being taken off the board.

The league's compensation policy has come under fire too. Teams must give up draft picks when hiring rivals' executives or coaches, even those fired. For example, the Blue Jackets must give one of their next three second-round picks to the Canucks for hiring former Lightning coach John Tortorella during the season, though Vancouver fired him after the 2013-14 season.

    TAMPA — It's a blink-and-you-miss-it nuance, but in Sunday's opener against Chicago, on their very first defensive snap, the Bucs lined up in a 3-4 defense.
