In the last few minutes, through Gary Bettman's right-hand man, Bill Daly, an important announcement was made by the National Hockey League.

In connection with the recent creation of a mid-season competitive tournament in the NBA, the NHL has decided that it does not intend to emulate this league.

"We are not considering the option of holding a tournament during the regular season." - Bill Daly

For those wondering why the NBA decided to add such a tournament in the middle of the season, know that the goal is to add high-quality basketball outside of the playoffs. This event will take place in November and December, where the 30 teams will participate and will be divided into 5 new divisions.


There is also significant interest for the players, as members of the winning team of the "NBA cup" will each receive half a million dollars.

It is clear that the league will also generate very significant economic spin-offs considering the strong excitement for such an event.

Although this tournament is a fairly unusual concept in North America, it will allow fans to see more competitive basketball in a single season.

Would you have liked to see a concept like this in the NHL?
