NHLPA AND LEAGUE AGREE "IN PRINCIPLE" TO SEND PROS TO NAGANO
Published March 16, 1995
NHLPA Exec Dir Bob Goodenow and NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman have "agreed in principle" to allow NHL players to participate in the '98 Winter Games in Nagano. The two met with IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch and officials from the IIHF in Lussanne, Switzerland. NHL VP of Public Relations Arthur Pincus: "There is a series of issues that has to be worked out before a definite commitment can be made. We're operating on a timetable of mid-July for a final decision." The NHL would have to stop its season for 10-12 days to accommodate the Games. The possibility of staging of a World Cup Tournament in '97 was also discussed (George Gross, TORONTO SUN, 3/16).
