NHL'S NEUTRAL ZONE TRAP COULD BECOME OBSOLETE BY TODAY
Published August 29, 1995
The NHL plans to announce today that it "intends to ban holding, hooking and all other forms of obstruction between the blue lines," according to Dave Fuller of the TORONTO SUN. Fuller reports that the new policy is expected to receive "unanimous approval" from the league's GMs who are currently meeting in Denver. "A rubber stamp from the owners is to follow." Some of the game's "elite" players were skeptical of the new policy, however. Maple Leafs' Doug Gilmour: "Every year we come to training camp, they say they're going to change this and call that. And in training camp, and for the first three or four weeks of the season, they do. But it never lasts" (TORONTO SUN, 8/29).
