NHL AVOIDS "VERBAL SCRAP" WITH GRETZKY OVER ALL-STAR PICKS
Published January 10, 1996
In naming Mike Gartner and Ron Francis as special picks to the All-Star Game, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman avoided a "verbal scrap" with Wayne Gretzky over the game's selection process. Gretzky believes the Game should not have to feature players from all teams (GLOBE & MAIL, 1/10). CURRENCY EQUALIZATION PLAN: The NHL Board of Governors voted last Friday to approve a plan to assist Canadian clubs over the disparity between U.S. and Canadian currencies. Teams must qualify by having revenues at least 80% of the league average or by meeting league-set standards for selling, season tickets, skyboxes and dasher-board signage. Teams may receive up to $5M in U.S. dollars (NHL).
