Posted by NHL on January 23, 2018 03:59:07 It’s a little early in the new year, but the first week of 2018 is shaping up to be a big one for the NHL.
The league has had a tough year, with a slew of teams in the Eastern Conference that were either eliminated in the first round of the playoffs or eliminated by a few games.
As a result, the league has been working hard to find new ways to keep fans engaged and in the game.
The New Year’s Six initiative is the most notable and successful of those efforts.
But, the idea has been around for a while, and has proven very popular.
It allows owners to take ownership in the NHL by offering teams merchandise and merchandise-related incentives.
There are a few reasons that the initiative has been a huge success.
The first and foremost is that it’s a way for owners to help fans find the best products at a reasonable price.
The other main reason is that the league can get rid of some of the bad habits of the past, including the lack of player rights.
The NHL has also worked hard to make the league more accessible to fans and to build awareness around its initiatives.
There’s been a ton of activity around player rights, including on social media, which has helped the league reach a wider audience.
It also helps that there’s a ton more competition in the free agency market now than ever before.
It’s also helped that there is a strong base of fan support for the initiative.
It is true that there are still some teams that aren’t interested in buying into the program.
There have been a few instances where owners have taken their money, but many more teams have shown a willingness to sign up and pay for player rights if the opportunity arises.
In the meantime, there are some big-name teams that have signed on, including Dallas Stars owner Jim Nill, who was the first owner to sign on.
The Stars, for example, have signed former Chicago Blackhawks forward Jason Spezza to a three-year, $23.5 million deal.
There were also reports of interest from the Anaheim Ducks and Minnesota Wild, as well as the Arizona Coyotes, who were reported to have shown interest in signing former Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Jonathan Quick.
It has also helped when the NHL has been able to offer incentives to teams.
For example, when the Philadelphia Flyers were last in the standings last season, they were awarded a $50,000 bonus for winning the Stanley Cup, while the New Jersey Devils were awarded $100,000 bonuses for reaching the conference finals and a $25,000 payment for the first two games of the Eastern conference finals.
There is also the $2 million buy-in for every home game in 2018.
These incentives will help the league expand the fan base, which is why fans have been signing up for more games.
However, there is one problem that the NHL needs to fix first: the lack and the lack-luster of player ownership.
The average salary for players in the league is $5 million.
For a team to get a player for $5M, they will need to be on a team that is able to pay the player.
The problem is that only about 15% of NHL teams are able to do that, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
For teams that are able, they’re able to use the cap space to sign a player who is a player that can help the team in the long run.
This is why the best way to build player ownership is to have the right owners who can make that happen.
The bottom line is that teams can sign players that can be impactful in the short-term, but that’s a long-term plan.
It should be an automatic decision that the owner wants to have a player in the lineup and it shouldn’t have to be based on how much they can get for a player.
In other words, players should be valued based on the value they bring to the team and not based on a percentage.
The number one priority for owners right now is to find players who can provide long-lasting value to their teams, and to do this, the NHL will have to get rid a lot of the old habits that are holding the league back.
In 2018, the players on the free agent market are not worth the same value as the ones on the active roster.
That’s a big problem, especially for younger players, because they are getting paid far less than their peers.
It takes a long time for the market to adjust to the new reality.
The lack of good player ownership could be a major reason for the team to give up on acquiring a top-tier free agent this offseason.
It could also be the reason why the Flyers decided to pull the trigger on a trade to acquire defenseman Steve Mason.
The Flyers had some great players this past season, but they struggled mightily in the playoffs.
Mason was one of those players.
The 32-year-old had the
