Editor's Note - Now that the season has started, these will be a little more sporadic. I'm going to try to do one per week still, but they'll work around the Wings' schedule Last time out, we looked at insurance coverages. In this episode, we'll cover two articles, as they're relatively short. You can find the entire CBA here (PDF) Article 24: International Hockey As with most sections which don't concretely lay out the way things will always work in the future, this article starts us out with the formation of a committee which decides the specifics. In this one, It's the NHL/NHLPA International Committee to plan and carry out international games/events, whether exhibition or regular season. The number of members isn't set, but it does have to be equal (although a quorum only needs one rep from each side). The CBA also specifically lays out that all clubs will be required (upon request) to participate in one such international event. Revenue for these international events net of expenses and direct costs is included in HRR when it comes to settling the wealth distribution of the NHL. Player per-diem is set at $110 per day with the same method of changing that figure year-to-year as is in Article 19. If revenues aren't high enough to defray costs, the NHL and NHLPA share in those losses equally. International games work the same as regular games as far as rights and responsibilities under a player's SPC and he can't be given a bonus for playing an international game, although he can earn money approved by the committee for a "project or initiative." If a player joins a national team or other non-NHL team to play against an NHL squad, he's still subject to league discipline for his actions in such a game. Players loaned to the minors while in Europe can be kept with the club (off their roster) or can be sent back to North America via business-class airfare. He still gets all the Article 23 benefits due to him while he's being held on loan by a team in Europe. If he's hurt while in this situation, he'll be treated as though he was injured while on the team's roster. The NHL and NHLPA agree to continue to work together to "jointly create and exploit other international projects and initiatives involving NHLPA players" outside of NHL-specific events as previously described (the article lists things like the World Cup of Hockey and the Olympics as examples here). These non-NHL international events aren't included in HRR though. Revenues here (net of expenses of course) are split evenly between the NHL and NHLPA. The rest of the article discusses the IIHF World Championships specifically. A player may participate in the tournament under the following conditions. The Player's club either missed the playoffs or was eliminated early. Nobody from the Player's national team is allowed to ask about his level of interest in participating in the World Championships until after his NHL team is eliminated and that such request has to happen at the same time that the team's GM is notified of the request. Either the IIHF or the National Team in question agrees to provide insurance to cover the remaining value of the player's SPC. Either the IIHF or the National Team in question agrees to provide such additional insurance to cover the Player's loss of earnings capacity as the Player may require. The third and fourth points are very important because there's a huge piece in this article which states that games played in the IIHF World Championships count as "hockey-related activity" pursuant to his SPC and if he's injured during that tournament, his team will be required to treat it as though his injury happened in an NHL game. Article 25: Endorsements; Sponsorships; Licensing Players are forbidden by the CBA from being involved in any endorsement or sponsorship of non-malt-based alcoholic beverages (anything but beer, basically) and/or tobacco products. In an endorsement deal, the player can say which team he plays for wi

DETROIT – What the Detroit Red Wings won’t be getting much of this season is rest between games. That’s why this four-day break between contests could not have come at a better time. “To start the season with three (games) in four nights is pretty tough,” said Jimmy Howard, who started all three games. “That first back-to- back is probably the toughest of the year. (I) definitely felt it in the third period (Saturday). Now that we got it under our belt and a few extra days off, it’s good to re-energize us.” After opening the season last Wednesday, the Wings played at Carolina Friday and Boston the very next night, going 2-1-0 in that stretch. Prior to that, Detroit also crammed in eight preseason games in 13 nights after a week-long training camp. “I would have rather not played on Saturday and played on Sunday and had one day, but that’s not how they schedule it so you take what they give you,” Wings coach Mike Babcock said. “You wouldn’t have played back-to-back you’d just have kept playing.” With this being an Olympic year the season is also a bit more condensed. “It gives us an opportunity to work on things from the first three games, fix some things and be sharp again on Thursday,” Daniel Alfredsson said. “It’s usually like this beginning of the year, it starts fairly slow and then, with Olympic year, it’s going to get pretty hectic once we get going. Three games and then a little break, we should be pretty fresh come Thursday.” After practicing on Monday the team had the day off Tuesday before returning to practice Wednesday. They return to action at home Thursday against the Phoenix Coyotes. “That’s the way it is,” Niklas Kronwall said. “I’m sure there’s a reason why. We’ve had three games, we know a little bit more what we need to work on, just got to stick to the game plan, keep working and move forward.” In the 82-game schedule, Detroit has a four-day break between games just two other times and only twice this season they have three days between games. Detroit goes back to playing three games in four nights again starting with Saturday’s home game vs. Philadelphia. “In the beginning here it would have been nicer to get a little more rest between a couple of games like this,” Jonathan Ericsson said. “But it is what it is. We just have to deal with it the best that we can, and now we’re getting a lot of rest before the next game so we should be really fresh and energized for the next game.” The Wings had very little energy in Saturday’s 4-1 loss to the Bruins. “It felt like we were behind Boston kind of from the start,” Ericsson said. “We never really caught up with them. I felt that we were a little bit short of energy. If you’re looking throughout the whole team we weren’t energized enough to compete against a good team like them.” Detroit has 14 more back-to-back games to go this season. “There’s going to be nights where you don’t have your energy on top but you can fall back on your structure,” Kronwall said. “It’s a lot easier. That’s something we have to keep working on as we move forward. That’s something you can never work too much on.” Helping alleviate some of the fatigue players will feel with this condensed schedule will be the team’s move to the Eastern Conference. “Rest is an important one,” Daniel Cleary said.
