TORONTO - Dry scraping the ice before overtime will be among the topics discussed at Tuesdays NHL general managers meeting, and the possibility exists that the idea will get scrapped earlier than planned.For the first time, regular-season games are being paused before overtime so the ice can get a dry scrape. The hope was to improve the quality of play and reduce the number of shootouts deciding games.Early evidence suggested that it — along with changing ends in overtime — was working, but GMs will discuss the dry scrape because of the time its adding to games and the momentum that it may be stopping at the end of regulation.Thats an interesting one, Calgary Flames GM Brad Treliving said Monday at the Prime Time Sports Management Conference. It used to break up between overtime and the shootout. Now it kinds of breaks up between the game and overtime. But the ice is better.Some players have complained about the dry scrape, which seems to delay overtime four to six minutes after the third period ends. Treliving said his experience was that it wasnt taking very long but he was interested to see data on how it was helping.Deputy commissioner Bill Daly said getting rid of the dry scrape is one possibility. That would require approval of the GMs, board of governors and Players Association.If it were up to Nashville Predators GM Dave Poile, the NHL would do away with the dry scrape right away, even though he believes it was instituted for all the right reasons.The big word everybody uses is buzz kill, Poile said. Theres no question. I got up and stretched my legs in the first one and a lot of people were getting up and leaving and I said thats a mistake. Weve got to rectify that.The Ontario Hockey League got rid of the dry scrape in early October after going through long delays.Stars GM Jim Nill said the delays have only been four minutes in Dallas, so he doesnt mind.At the NHL level, there may not be enough momentum to cut the dry-scrape experiment shorter than at least this season. Montreal Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin said he was fine with it.It doesnt bother me one bit, Bergevin said.Treliving added that while he wants to hear debate on the issue, he doesnt think its a big deal and doesnt feel overly emotional one way or another.Another topic thats expected to be on the agenda once again is three-on-three play in overtime. The American Hockey League is trying some of it this year, and a prospects tournament in Traverse City, Mich., also experimented with it.Nill has seen it in the AHL and likes it.So many things can happen, Nill said. If somebody breaks a stick out there and youre stuck in your end with the long change, it just changes the whole dynamic. I think its a great way to end the game without getting to the shootout.Detroit Red Wings GM Ken Holland has long been a proponent of making three-on-three part of NHL overtime. But Daly isnt sure the rest of the crowd is ready to get on board.I know there continues to be some resistance to that happening, Daly said.---Follow @SWhyno on Twitter Fake Vapormax 97 .com) - Brad Stuart has yet to play a regular-season game for the Colorado Avalanche, but that didnt deter the club from signing the veteran defenseman to a two-year contract extension on Monday.
