A few quick notes on the NHL general managers' meetings in Toronto on Tuesday.

- Several managers have commented on the 'blindside, head-hit' discussion that took place this morning. All are in full support of the process and believe we have seen many examples of behavioral changes, suggesting the players are starting to get it and any confusion will fade with time.

- GM Dale Tallon's Coach's Challenge was dismissed, although Penguins general manager Ray Shero suggested it may be revisited in March.

- The general managers also briefly discussed Detroit's proposal for a 4-on-4 to 3-on-3 overtime concept. With shootouts down, there isn't a strong appeal (at this point) to give this proposal consideration. It may be tabled for further discussion in March.

- The GMs have also agreed to continue with Research and Development camps, confirming there will be another one next summer.

- Coyotes GM Don Maloney tabled a proposal for a social media policy. Deputy commissioner Bill Daly has an internal draft of a policy that is being considered, however there is a great deal of discussion that has to take place before any official policy is introduced.
