IF IT AIN'T BROKE...: USA TODAY's Kevin Allen writes the league's history "says to move cautiously on rule changes," which might be why NHL GMs "seem to be leaning toward subtle changes to overtime rules rather than a dramatic overhaul." NHL Senior Exec VP/Hockey Operations Colin Campbell said, "There's always a push for a pull and a pull for a push. So we've got to decide what's best for the game in a lot of ways" (USA TODAY, 3/11). Stars GM Jim Nill noted, "With every rule, you've got to be careful. It's a great game. When you start making changes, you think you've got all angles covered and something else seeps into it." Rangers President & GM Glen Sather said, "We've had a track record of making it worse in some cases. It's still a great game" (ESPN.com, 3/10).
