After the first day of meetings in Boca Raton, the NHL GMs recommended a 3-on-3 OT and a coach's challenge system. It's up to the NHLPA now. [Canadian Press]

The salary cap is on tap for day 2. Even if the NHLPA doesn't vote to raise the cap ceiling, the league can still do it. Some important clarification from the fine print in the CBA. Excellent read as always by Elliotte Friedman. [Sportsnet]

Which NHL teams would be the best 3-on-3? Crosby, Malkin, Letang, you say? Yeah, no one else has the trio that would rival 87/71/58. [THN]
