The NHL's board of governors discussed nearly every aspect of the league's product Friday morning, and most of the league's rulers headed to their afternoon golf matches with a sunny conclusion. "The sense was just overwhelmingly positive about what's going on," Toronto Maple Leafs' General Manager John Ferguson said. "We had a real positive, proactive discussion about how to make a great game even better and showcase our talent and our excitement." The Monterey Peninsula's pleasant weather matched the board's mood after its two-day session concluded with an evaluation of the state of the game. The owners and executives made their most interesting moves Thursday night, selecting a schedule format with fewer intradivision games and approving the sale of the Nashville Predators.
