The NHL’s unbalanced schedule is sticking around, at least for one more season. During a five-hour meeting Tuesday, the league’s 30 general managers debated the pros and cons but couldn’t come to a consensus on how the 82-game slate should be comprised.

Toronto Maple Leafs captain Mats Sundin will be sidelined for three to four weeks with a slight ligament tear in his right elbow.
Former St. Louis Blues defenseman Al MacInnis was hired Tuesday to be the team’s vice president of hockey operations.
